    • Indians' Roberto Perez: Out of lineup Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez is not in the lineup against the Yankees on Friday. Perez will head to the bench for Game 2 of the ALDS after working behind the plate during Thursday's victory. In his place, Yan Gomes will handle the catching duties and bat eighth in the order.

    • Perez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Tigers. Although officially listed as No. 2 on the depth chart, Perez continues to play his way into the lineup on a routine basis. In seven starts this month, the catcher is 8-for-26 (.308) with three home runs and nine RBI. Perez is a solid play in daily formats on days when he's in the lineup.

    • Perez went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Orioles. He went back-to-back with Francisco Lindor in the sixth inning and has now homered twice already in September after hitting just three over the first five months of the campaign. Perez and Yan Gomes have been basically alternating starts over the past couple weeks.

    • Indians' Roberto Perez: Starting on Labor Day
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez is in the starting lineup Monday against Detroit. Perez will shoulder the catching duties for a second straight day, proving his hot bat is being noticed by manager Terry Francona. The 28-year-old is more than capable of holding his own defensively, so contributing offensively like he has lately should allow Perez to see more playing time down the stretch.

    • Perez went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a walk in Sunday's 11-1 shellacking of the Tigers. Much like he did last year, the backup catcher is heating up late in the campaign. Since the start of August, Perez is hitting .317 with three home runs and 14 RBI through 15 games. His lack of consistent playing time makes him unusable in most leagues, but Perez is worth deploying in daily formats as long as he remains hot.
