The Indians announced this evening that they have claimed outfielder Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Phillies. Carrera went 1-for-13 in 13 games with Philadelphia prior to being designated for assignment earlier this week when Delmon Young was activated from the disabled list.

Of course, this will be Carrera’s second stint with the Indians. The 25-year-old batted .255/.306/.347 with two home runs, 25 RBI, 18 stolen bases and a .653 OPS in 116 games with the club from 2011-2012. The Indians lost him to the Phillies at the end of spring training after designating him for assignment, but he’s now back with the organization and will presumably function as a reserve outfielder.

In a corresponding roster move, the Indians have designated first baseman Michael McDade for assignment. The 23-year-old was hitting .230/.313/.284 with zero homers, seven RBI and a .597 OPS through 21 games this season with Triple-A Columbus.

    He can’t catch routine fly balls so why bother

    Wait, the Indians just clobbered the Phillies and then need one of their hitters.
