Indians' Roberto Perez: Will begin 2017 in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Perez will begin the 2017 season as the backup catcher to Yan Gomes, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Manager Terry Francona made it clear Thursday morning that there will be no competition between Perez and Gomes for the primary job behind the plate. The skipper added that he'll look for opportunities to work Perez into the mix as often as possible. Even as the backup, the 28-year-old should see a fair amount of innings. Gomes has played in fewer than 100 games in four of his five professional seasons, and he hit a career-low .167 in 251 at-bats last year. If he struggles early or suffers another injury, Perez, who's already a decent fantasy asset in deep leagues, becomes an immediate option across most formats.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Spends January training with Yadier Molina
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Perez spent most of January training with Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, an eight-time Gold Glove Award winner, on the mental aspects of catching, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

Perez will compete with Yan Gomes for playing time in 2017. With the latter having dealt with lingering shoulder issues, strong defense could be Perez's path to more playing time. Perez has dealt with his own health problems though, as a broken thumb cost the 28-year-old nearly half the 2016 campaign. The battle for starting catcher duties will be one to monitor this spring, as the draft value of both Perez and Gomes is strongly tied to the fight. Barring injury, the most likely scenario is that the pair breaks camp in some sort of platoon, limiting both of their stocks to begin 2017.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Perez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

It's a standard off day for Perez in the series finale, with Chris Gimenez assuming duties behind the plate. Look for Perez to return to the lineup Monday against the Astros.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers.

Tribe manager Terry Francona is likely just extending Perez a breather after he was behind the plate for the last four games, highlighted by a 4-for-5, three-RBI showing at the dish in Friday's series opener. Chris Gimenez will make the start Sunday, but Perez will continue serving as the Indians' top catcher until Yan Gomes (shoulder) returns from the DL, likely in early September.
