It’s only been a couple days since he was released, but it appears utility outfielder Ezequiel Carrera has found a new team.

Carrera has signed with the Atlanta Braves, according to Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports, reuniting the speedy player with general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

The 30-year-old spent the last three seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays, first signing with the club in December 2014 when Anthopoulos was still the GM of the team.

During his time in Toronto, Carrera hit .267/.336/.380 in 827 plate appearances with 19 stolen bases in mainly a platoon and bench role.

The Blue Jays released Carrera on Sunday.
