Indians' Roberto Perez: Option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez's $5.5 million team option for 2021 was picked up by Cleveland on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Perez sustained a right wrist contusion during Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series, but it's unlikely that the issue will impact his offseason plans as he prepares for another season with Cleveland. The 31-year-old also missed time earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, but he served as the primary catcher when he was healthy, slashing .165/.264/.216 with five RBI over 32 games.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Leaves with wrist bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was removed from Wednesday's Game 2 against the Yankees with a right wrist contusion, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Perez went 2-for-3 with one RBI and was also hit by a pitch before exiting the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear, so the 31-year-old should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Back in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (shoulder) is starting Thursday against the Tigers.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Shoulder issue resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez isn't starting Wednesday against the Cubs due to a right shoulder injury, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old spent time on the injured list earlier in the season with a right shoulder strain, and he's apparently still dealing with some of the effects of that injury. The initial injury presented more of a hindrance on throws, but the current issue is presenting problems on swings. Temporary manager Sandy Alomar Jr. said Perez will need to find a way to work through the discomfort, or he'll end up receiving a couple days off to recover. The team hopes he'll be ready to rejoin the lineup Thursday in Detroit.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Takes seat Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez isn't in the lineup Thursday against the Royals.

Perez will take a seat Thursday for the fourth time in the past seven games. Cleveland currently has three catchers on the active roster, so Perez could continue to see inconsistent playing time going forward.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

With Cleveland carrying three catchers, Perez may only start three or four days per week going forward. Sandy Leon is behind the dish and batting eighth in this one.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (shoulder) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Brewers.

Right shoulder fatigue forced Perez to the bench for a few days, but he's back Sunday, catching for ace Shane Bieber. Perez has been unable to capture the same magic he had last year, slashing just .167/.286/.250 with one homer through 16 games this season.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (shoulder) is not in the lineup Friday against the Brewers.

The 31-year-old was removed from Wednesday's contest with right shoulder fatigue and won't return to the lineup Friday. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, though Perez did miss time with a strain in the same shoulder earlier this season. Austin Hedges will take over behind the plate for Cleveland.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Exits with shoulder fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was removed from Wednesday's game against the Royals with right shoulder fatigue, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

The 31-year-old missed the about three weeks after suffering a right shoulder strain in late July, so Cleveland is liable to remain cautious with any issues in the same area. Perez will have Thursday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially missing any games, but a potential aggravation of his previous injury is a problematic development.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Tallies first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and one scored Tuesday against the Royals.

Perez delivered his first home run of the season in the second inning, taking Matt Harvey deep for a two-run shot. He's been poor at the plate to this point in the campaign, as he's managed just a .170/.291/.255 line across 55 plate appearances. Given Cleveland's recent acquisition of Austin Hedges, Perez could also be pushed for playing time.
