The Rays brought in two of their top prospects Friday to complete a three-team trade that sent Kevin Kiermaier to the Yankees, Asdrubal Cabrera to the Nationals and the right-handed outfielder Randy Arozarena to Tampa Bay.

As for the fourth player in the deal, it turns out to be another Mexican player: Ezequiel Carrera, a left-handed pitcher who the Rays acquired from the Dodgers in the O’Day trade.

The Twins also used their fourth-round pick in the 2010 draft on Carrera.

Arozarena is listed at 6-foot-4 and 232 pounds and is a center fielder who was a first-round pick by the Rays in 2010. The 23-year-old hit .229 with three home runs and 18 RBIs this season in 121 games with the Rays’ Double-A affiliate in Charlotte.

Arozarena was a highly regarded prospect in the Rays’ farm system after posting a .323 average in his first full professional season in 2014, when he split the year between Single-A St. Petersburg and Charlotte.

He missed all of 2016 because of surgery on his left thumb, which was also the result of a freak injury.
