RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2013

Carrera has flashed decent speed (18 steals in 116 games) over parts of two seasons with Cleveland but his poor plate disciple (8:35 BB:K) figures to limit both his batting average and his base-stealing chances. There's some stolen-base upside here if he can land in a starting role, but a poor approach at the plate figures to limit his other stats. Working as an outfield option off the bench is likely the best fit for his skill set, and that appears to be the plan with the Indians' addition of Nick Swisher in free agency.

2012

Carrera parlayed injuries to Michael Brantley and Grady Sizemore into a semi-regular gig for the Indians, hitting .243 with 10 steals in 68 games. He's never hit for any power in the minors but does do a reasonable enough job of controlling the strike zone to give himself a chance to utilize his speed on the basepaths. He has some stolen-base upside as he competes for a reserve spot this spring that could bear fruit if he becomes the primary option to replace the brittle Sizemore in center field at any point.

2011

Carrera struggled in his first exposure at Triple-A, hitting .281/.343/.351 for the Seattle and Cleveland organizations, after leading the Double-A Southern League in batting average (.336) in 2009. His complete lack of power cut into his walk total as Triple-A pitchers pounded the strike zone without fear and he's going to have to develop some power if he wants to avoid being nothing more than a defensive replacement and pinch-runner.

2010

Carrera was one of the lesser-known pieces of the J.J. Putz trade from a year ago, but it's easy to see why the Mariners coveted him. He led the Double-A Southern League last season in both batting average (.337) and OBP (.441) and stole 27 bases. He has outstanding plate discipline with 59 walks to 62 strikeouts, and is a top-notch defensive outfielder. Carrera has little power (just 18 XBH among 111 hits in 91 games), but uses his speed as a slap hitter to beat out infield singles (he also notched 15 bunt hits). The Mariners have plenty of outfield prospects at the moment, and Carrera needs more seasoning, but the Mariners thought enough of him to put him on the 40-man roster in the offseason.
