Braves' Ezequiel Carrera: Joins Braves
Carrera signed a contract with the Braves on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, the deal is a minor-league contract which includes an invitation to spring training.
Carrera has found a new home after being cut loose by the Blue Jays over the weekend. The 30-year-old should compete for an Opening Day starting role in the Braves' outfield, though at best he's a stopgap for top prospect Ronald Acuna, who is expected to join the big club in mid-April after Atlanta secures an extra year of team control. Carrera hit .282/.356/.408 in 325 plate appearances with Toronto last year.
