Perez (shoulder) is starting at catcher and hitting ninth Wednesday against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Perez is good to go after missing the last two games with a shoulder contusion. The backup catcher is hitting just .156/.251/.246 through 59 games this season.
Perez was removed from Sunday's game against the Red Sox due to a right shoulder contusion, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports. Perez acquired the injury early in the game when he was clipped by a foul ball. Given the nature of the injury, he shouldn't miss much if any time.
Perez went 2-for-4 with a walk, a homer, a double, four RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays. Perez did all of his damage in a seven-run fifth inning, leading off with a homer before knocking a three-run double later in the frame. The big day at the plate accounted for one third of his RBI on the season. He's hitting just .157/.254/.252 with two homers over 55 games.
Perez (hand) will catch Trevor Bauer and bat eighth in the order against the White Sox on Wednesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Perez is back in the lineup after missing the past two games due to a bruised hand. Over 24 games this year, Perez is hitting just .130/.227/.208 with four RBI and 34 strikeouts.
Perez (hand) has not been placed on the disabled list, contrary to prior reports. Perez is out with a bruised hand, and the Indians have called up catcher Francisco Mejia, but Perez remains on the active roster, at least for now. Reliever Evan Marshall was optioned to make room for Mejia.
