Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Inks one-year deal with Blue Jays, avoiding arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrera agreed to a one-year, $1,162,500 contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 29-year-old outfielder is expected to fill a platoon role in 2017 with Melvin Upton Jr. also in the fold after being acquired for the playoff push in last year. Carrera slashed just .248/.323/.356 over a career-high 310 plate appearances last year, so with less regular at-bats in store in 2017, his value may be on the decline.

Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Expected to platoon next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrera figures to be used as a platoon partner for Melvin Upton Jr. in 2017, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The Jays need to add outfield depth before the offseason ends, which makes Carrera's roster spot far from guaranteed just yet. He's out of minor league options, which means the 29-year-old would be designated for assignment if he's not on the 25-man roster (or DL) for the duration of 2017. Carrera played in a career-high 110 games last season, but managed just a .248 batting average while posting a weak 22.6 percent strikeout rate.

Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Caps ALDS with pair of hits, runs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carrera went 2-for-5 and scored twice in Sunday's series-clinching victory over the Rangers.

After seeing his playing time cut in the second half of 2016, Carrera is back in the thick of things during the most important time of the season. Through four playoff games, the 29-year-old is 6-for-16 (.444) with two walks, two RBI, four runs and a stolen base. He's started every game so far during the postseason and has hit leadoff in the last two contests while Devon Travis has sat out due to injury. Barring a setback, Carrera appears locked in as a starting outfielder the rest of the way, but he'll likely drop back to ninth in the order once Travis returns for the ALCS.

Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Ties game with squeeze versus Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carrera went 1-for-4 with the game-tying RBI in Sunday's walkoff win over the Yankees.

Carrera brought home the tying run in the ninth inning with a bunt up the first-base line, a safety squeeze that resulted in his only hit of the day. Over his past three starts, Carrera has gone 5-for-11 with a pair of RBI and runs. However, the 29-year-old is just 7-for-58 (.121) since returning from the DL on Aug. 16.

Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Delivers game-winning homer off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrera hit a pinch-hit solo homer in the eighth inning of Monday's game, leading the Jays to a 3-2 victory over the Rays.

Carrera's second career pinch-hit home run couldn't have come at a better time for the Blue Jays. The backup outfielder has primarily been used as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement in the second half of the season, but his first home run since July 5 was the difference. According to Statcast, Carrera's career-high fifth home run of the season traveled 340 feet and left the bat at 97 mph. It was Toronto's first pinch-hit homer since Carrera had one in July of 2015 against the Mariners.
