Detroit Tigers OF Ezequiel Carrera started the Triple-A All-Star Game in Durham Wednesday, July 16, batting leadoff and starting in center field. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and two stolen bases.
Fantasy Tip: Carrera might get the call from the big club to inject a little speed into the offense, especially since reserve OF Andy Dirks (back) does not appear to be close to returning from back surgery anytime soon, if at all.

The Cleveland Indians claimed OF Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: Carrera finds himself back with Cleveland. He'll likely just serve as outfield depth. Both Michael Bourn (finger) and Nick Swisher (shoulder) are currently sidelined, but Ryan Raburn has filled in admirably. Bourn and Swisher should both be back soon, too.

The Philadelphia Phillies activated OF Delmon Young (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 30, and designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Phillies had expressed concern with Young's defensive prowess in right field during his rehab assignment, so it's unclear how often he'll be starting initially. For now, though, he should be considered in mixed leagues and added in NL-only universes.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere did not start Thursday, April 25, against the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first time this season. OF Ezequiel Carrera made the start in his absence and was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Revere is batting just .207 on the season with 14 strikeouts in 87 at-bats. However, expect the Phillies to keep pushing him back out there, letting him try to hit his way out of the slump. His fantasy appeal is limited to NL-only formats right now, and he still has some worth in mixed rotisserie formats for his speed potential, although he is crushing owners in batting average.
