      Indians' Roberto Perez: May have concussion

      Perez took a foul tip to the mask in a recent spring training game and may be dealing with a concussion, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The Indians have made no roster moves yet involving Perez or the other catchers in the organization, but that could happen Monday while the team puts the backstop through the concussion protocol. If Perez is ultimately moved to the 7-day DL, the Indians would likely bring minor leaguer Adam Moore onto the roster to serve as the backup to Yan Gomes.

      Roberto Perez provides all of Indians' offense in loss to Twins Thursday

      Indians catcher Roberto Perez went 2 for 4 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Twins. Unfortunately for the Indians, that one swing generated their only runs on the day. Perez hasn't offered much in fantasy, but he's now homered in two of his last three starts and has seven hits in 20 at-bats (a .350 average) over his last six starts, so he's closing things out on a high note.
