Carrera Rejects Outright AAA Assignment and Will Become Free Agent

Ezequiel Carrera has rejected his outright assignment to AAA Toledo after the Tigers designated him for assignment in order to remove him off the 40-man roster. He is allowed to select free agency like he did because another team has previously outrighted him off their 40-man roster and as a rule of the MLB-CBA players are allowed to pursue other opportunities if they so chose....

Detroit's Carrera opts for free agency

DETROIT -- Ezequiel Carrera has decided to become a free agent after the Detroit Tigers assigned him outright to Triple-A Toledo. The Tigers designated the outfielder for assignment last week.

DETROIT (AP) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski says he would like to address the team's center-field situation and bullpen after Detroit won its fourth straight AL Central title but was swept out of the playoffs in the division series.

Game 2014.154: Tigers at Royals

I had to think about it, but I’ve decided I like winning 10-1 better than losing 8-4. Justin “Ricky” Verlander dominated KC without really being dominant. Pretty darn good. He didn’t seem too happy about being lifted from the game rather unnecessarily, or maybe he was just upset with Ezequiel Carrera’s nonchalance in allowing a runner to tag and advance to 3B, but that...

Inciarte making the most of his time

PHOENIX -- When Philadelphia claimed Cleveland outfielder Ezequiel Carrera three days into the 2013 season, Ender Inciarte was the odd man out. He lost his major league roster spot with the Phillies and was returned to Arizona, per Rule 5 stipulations. It was the best thing that could have happened, Inciarte believes. "I knew I wasn't ready to play" in the majors, Inciarte...

Detroit Tigers Rumors: Red Sox ‘Favorite’ for Rusney Castillo, Tigers Still in the Chase

The Detroit Tigers could use some help in center field, but it may have to come from someone other than Rusney Castillo. The coveted Cuban defector continues to mull over his MLB prospects, with several teams including the Tigers pursuing him. Jon Heyman of CBSSports reported Friday morning that the Boston Red Sox appear to be leading the chase. Boston remains “heavily involved”...

Detroit Tigers Trade Rumors: Team Has ‘Kicked Around’ Possibility of Adding a Hitter

The Detroit Tigers’ AL Central lead continues to dwindle and the offense continues to struggle — after putting up five runs early Sunday in Toronto, the Tigers went scoreless for the final 15 innings of that 6-5 loss. So now, with the waiver-trade deadline approaching, GM Dave Dombrowski may be looking for another bat. (“No kidding,” said every Tigers fan at the same time...

Game 2014.110: Tigers at Yankees

On paper, it looks like Max Scherzer kept up the trend of dominant starting pitching, allowing only 2 runs in 7 innings. In reality, three spectacular defensive plays with runners on base kept the game within reach. Ian Kinsler made two fine plays dashing to his left, fielding the ball into right field, spinning, and making a strong throw, once to second to start a double play,...

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

Yankees One Win Away From Series Split With Mighty Detroit Tigers

Judging from the way the Yankees pitching staff has performed over the past few months, it wasn't hard to believe that they could match the Tigers' Big Three: Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander.  The question was whether or not they could score enough runs to, if not win, make the games competitive.  After all, their anemic offense has been a broken record for...

WATCH: Ezequiel Carrera’s full-extension dive

The Detroit Tigers may have lost to the New York Yankees 2-1, but they may have found something better than one game. They may have found their new center fielder.

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...

Getting his first start in center for the Tiger this season, Ezequiel Carrera made an unbelievable over the shoulder diving catch to rob Jacoby Ellsbury of what could have been a bases clearing hit with the bases loaded.  Ichiro still scored on the play but still… his first start of the season and already a catch of the year candidate. @TMSNXAdam
