Found August 04, 2014 on Sportsnaut:
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter thought he had a bases clearing double after he launched a ball to deep center against the Detroit Tigers on Monday evening. New Tigers center fielder Ezequiel Carrera, who is replacing the recently traded Austin Jackson, had other ideas.  It’s unknown whether Carrera actually held on to the baseball as he went sliding into the warning track dirt, but the call stayed as an out. In any event, this has to be one of the top-10 plays in baseball this year. Photo:   The post WATCH: Tigers CF’ Ezequiel Carrera with Crazy Diving Catch appeared first on

Get Out Of My Dreams and Into My Carrera

Two of the smaller pieces that stand to gain value after Thursday's massive trade deadline are Tiger center fielders Ezequiel Carrera and Rajai Davis. The two will see all of the starts in center now that Austin Jackson has been traded. Davis should see the majority of playing time between the two speedsters, but Carrera could still be good for SAGNOF in some deep leagues...

Video: Tigers’ Ezequiel Carrera makes ridiculous diving catch

As exciting as it was for the Tigers to get David Price at the trade deadline, there was something of a pause among Detroit fans when Austin Jackson was revealed to be part of the deal.

Scherzer, Carrera can't save Tigers

When a major-league team gets good pitching and spectacular defense on the same night, they usually go on to win the game. That's even more true when it is the Tigers -- a team built around a powerful offense. Monday, though, wasn't one of those nights. Max Scherzer allowed two runs in seven innings, Ezequiel Carrera made one of the best catches of the season and Ian Kinsler...

It’s been quite the week for highlight-reel catches.

That’s Alonzo Harris, a former New York Mets minor leaguer currently...

Derek Jeter Caught Staring At Hot Blonde (Video)

On May 12, Porcello turned in a 6 inning, 5 hit, 1 ER performance which launched a 6 game winning streak which saw...
