MLB News: OF Ezequiel Carrera claimed off waivers; David Huff clears

The Indians lost OF Ezequiel Carrera to the Philadelphia Phillies when he was claimed off the waiver wire-

“The Indians knew they were taking a risk when they exposed fleet-footed outfielder Ezequiel Carrera to waivers. The only question seemed to be which club would pluck the outfielder off the wire.

On Tuesday, the Phillies claimed Carrera off outright waivers, adding him to their 40-man roster. Indians left-hander David Huff, who was designated for assignment on Sunday, cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Columbus.” [Bastian/Indians.com]

The writing was very much on the wall for Carrera when the Indians picked up Bourn, Swisher and Stubbs in the off-season.

For his career David Huff is 18-26 with a 5.30 ERA in 55 games.

    Carrera was more valuable to the tribe than mccoy was to the browns.
