Can Never Have Enough Shitty 5th OFs...

Which is the only reason to bring this scrub back:

Indians claim OF Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from Philadelphia

Berry-Tripp, Court
6:05 PM (30 minutes ago)

The Cleveland Indians have claimed OF EZEQUIEL CARRERA off waivers from Philadelphia. To make room on the club's 40-man roster, 1B MIKE McDADE has been designated for assignment.

Carrera, 25, has appeared in 13 games for the Phillies this season. He was in Major League camp with the Indians this spring (.279, 12-for-43, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 11 SB) before being designated for assignment on March 25 and claimed off waivers by Philadelphia on April 2.

Oh Carrera how we've missed you!

Don't get too comfortable though, you're getting DFA'd as soon as Bourn's healthy enough to come off the DL.

Didn't we work out a trade for McDade? With Texas right? Why DFA him now for Zeek? Odd.

They'll keep him for a few days and cut him when Bourn is back.

McDade was claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays back in November.

The guy you might be thinking of is Chris McGuiness who was a Rule 5 pick from Texas..... the Indians actually returned him back to the Rangers before the start of the season.

McDade is just a guy, Carrera is just a guy.... difference is Carrera can be a place holder in MLB until Bourn comes off the DL.

Makes it sound to me like Swisher's shoulder is actually a little worse than they're letting on if there's a need for another OF. Already have Brantley who can play CF so that's not the issue.

I don't necessarily think Swisher's injury is worse, but I doubt he plays the OF for a while after this flair up. Without Bourn and Swisher they're down to 3 OFers (I know Aviles can play there but he hasn't and Francona said he's not comfortable with him there yet). Zeke simply fills the 4th OF role until Bourn is healthy.

Swish not in the lineup again tonight.

And just like that, Carrera's gone again.

DFA'd and Scott Barnes called up to provide an extra BP arm with Pestano unavailable for the time being.

Bourn is starting a rehab in AAA tomorrow so, Barnes stay might be short too (unless Pestano hits the DL).
