    • Carrera will start in center field and lead off Sunday against the Twins, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Carrera will find himself at the top of the order for a second straight contest after reaching base four times and scoring two runs Saturday while filling in for Steve Pearce in left field. With Kevin Pillar resting in the series finale, Carrera will shift over to center, but may need to stay hot at the plate in order to guarantee himself regular at-bats heading into the upcoming week.

    • Carrera will start in right field and man the leadoff spot Sunday against the Angels, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. With Jose Bautista receiving a day off for the first time since April 27, manager John Gibbons will call upon Carrera and his .360 on-base percentage to set the table for the Blue Jays. The move to the top of the lineup could give Carrera some appeal in DFS contests, though his run-scoring potential could be lessened with two of the team's big boppers -- Bautista and Josh Donaldson -- both resting.

    • Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Batting second Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Carrera will start in left field and bat second Sunday against the Tigers, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Carrera will fill in for regular left fielder Steve Pearce, who is resting, and slot into the top third of the order with normal No. 2 hitter Russell Martin also receiving a breather. With a .354 on-base percentage over 210 plate appearances this season, Carrera has been a capable performer when he's received opportunities to play, but unless Pearce endures a prolonged dry spell at the dish, it looks like Carrera's number of starts will be fairly limited.

    • Carrera is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Houston on Saturday. After starting for much of the season's first half, Carrera has struggled to see the field since returning from the disabled list June 25. He's started just one of the team's seven games in July despite owning the third-best OBP (.357) among Jays with at least 180 at-bats this year.

    • Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera: Remains out of lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Carrera is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles. Carrera was activated from the 10-day disabled list ahead of Tuesday's series opener, but will remain on the bench for a second straight contest. It appears the Blue Jays will go with Steve Pearce as their primary left-field option for the time being. Carrera's chances of reemerging as an everyday player will only grow more difficult if Michael Saunders, who inked a minor-league contract with Toronto on Wednesday, is eventually promoted to the big club.
