CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Indians brought back outfielder Ezequiel Carrera to the organization on Thursday.
The Tribe claimed Carrera off waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies. Carrera appeared in 13 games for Philadelphia.
Carrera has been placed on the 25-man roster after Wednesday night's winning pitcher Trevor Bauer was optioned back to triple-A Columbus after Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Phillies.
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Indians designated Mike McDade for assignment.
Carrera spent spring training with the Indians before being designated for assignment back on March 25 and being claimed off waivers by the Phillies.
