Brett Hayes replaces Roberto Perez in Indians' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Brett Hayes will get his second start of the season at catcher on Saturday. Hayes is batting eighth in the Indians' lineup. 

Hayes' start gives Roberto Perez a rest after starting nine of the last 10 games. 

The Indians are +105 money line underdogs at Detroit.

Indians' Roberto Perez swinging hot bat against righties
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians catcher Roberto Perez is 6 for 16 with two home runs and three RBI against right-handed pitchers this season. However, the catcher is hitless in seven at-bats against lefties.

Perez is serving as the team's starting catcher while Yan Gomes is on the disabled list, and he's continuing to struggle against southpaws after going 4 for 24 against them last season. The Indians will square off against lefty John Danks and the White Sox Monday.

The Indians are slight favorites (-109) against the White Sox, per VegasInsider.com.

Indians have full confidence in Roberto Perez as starting catcher
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians catcher Roberto Perez said he is ready for the everyday role behind the plate with starter Yan Gomes sidelined 6-8 weeks due to a knee injury.

"My mentality hasn't changed," Perez said, per MLB.com. "I always come to the field ready to play. I pretend like I'm going to play that day, so nothing changes."

The Indians appear to have full confidence in Perez, who was lauded for his defense in the minors.

"He's a backup here because we have Yan Gomes," said Sandy Alomar Jr., the Indians' first-base coach and a former major-league catcher. "Anywhere else, he could start.

"He's a good catcher, man. He's prepared. We're in good hands behind the dish until Gomer gets back. It's a big loss for us having Yan Gomes out, but I think Roberto is going to do a good job."

The Indians are also confident Perez can get the job done offensively. Perez hit .305 with eight home runs and 43 RBI in 53 games at Triple-A last season.

"He really kind of turned it around," manager Terry Francona said. "His batting average or whatever, that's not the end all, be all. But the fact that he's a threat when he's hitting is important, because he can drive the ball out of the ballpark. He has improved dramatically."

Report: Indians OK with Perez as starting catcher with Gomes out
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Indians don't plan to seek a starting catcher with Yan Gomes sidelined 6-8 weeks due to an MCL sprain, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. 

The team views Roberto Perez as a capable starter, but the team could look for an upgrade at backup catcher over Brett Hayes.

Indians' Brett Hayes to join roster Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians catcher Brett Hayes will join the major-league roster Tuesday to serve as the team's backup catcher while Yan Gomes recovers from a knee sprain, MLB.com reports.

Hayes hit just .135/.151/.212 in 52 at-bats with the Royals last season. First baseman Carlos Santana will be the team's emergency catcher Sunday if Roberto Perez can't go the full game.
