Rockland County, NY (May 29, 2019) – The Rockland Boulders of the Can-Am League have acquired the rights to former MLB outfielder Ezequiel Carrera. The left-handed hitter joins the Boulders after playing seven Major League seasons and accumulating 1164 at bats to date.
A 2005 amateur free agent signed by the New York Mets, Carrera made his debut with the Cleveland Indians, for whom he appeared in 68 games during the 2011 season. He played all or parts of the next six seasons in the Majors, including 2015-17, where he batted .267 in 332 games for the Toronto Blue Jays. Zeke spent all of 2018 playing at the AAA level and started the current season in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ organization before being released.
“He’s still a Major League caliber player,” noted Boulders’ manager Kevin Baez. “We know he wants to get back there but his presence will be a big addition to our team for however long that takes.” Carrera is expected to be in the Rockland lineup Friday night, with additional roster moves to follow.
The Boulders, fresh off an impressive 5-2 road trip, return to Palisades Credit Union Park on Friday night against the Quebec Capitales as the start of a six-game homestand with a 7:00 pm first pitch. After that three game set, the Sussex County Miners return for three games from Tuesday through Thursday. Tickets for these and all home games are available at the box office, online at rocklandboulders.com, or call 845-364-0009.
