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.
Perez was placed on the disabled list with a bruised right hand Monday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. Perez was hit in the hand by a pitch Sunday and was forced to leave the game. He appears to have avoided a fracture but will nevertheless be out for a minimum of 10 days. Francisco Mejia was called up to take his place on the roster.
Perez underwent an X-ray on his right hand after being lifted in the sixth inning of Sunday's 9-2 win over the Tigers, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports. The Indians are still awaiting clarity on the results of the scans, but manager Terry Francona said there was a fair chance that Perez "dodged a bullet" with the injury. While that hints Perez may have avoided a fracture of the hand, he was spotted in a soft cast in the locker room after the game, suggesting a trip to the disabled list could still be in store. Perez has served as the primary backup to Yan Gomes at catcher this season, appearing in 24 games and hitting .130/.227/.208.
Perez was removed from Sunday's game against the Tigers after being hit by a pitch on his right hand, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Perez was plunked on the right hand in the top of the sixth inning but remained on the basepaths before being removed from the contest between the half-inning. We'll await word from the Indians on the specifics of the injury.
