Indians' Roberto Perez: Swats 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-3 win over the Angels.

That's now three homers in the last three games and a career-high 19 on the season for the 30-year-old backstop. In fact, Perez is only two more long balls away from doubling his career total, as he came into the year with 21. His .240/.325/.490 slash line limits his value in shallow fantasy formats, but as long as he keeps taking advantage of the juiced ball, he'll have a spot on active rosters in most leagues.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Goes deep twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 2-for-3 with two home runs, a walk and four RBI in Thursday's 10-4 win over the Astros.

Perez kicked off the Tribe's scoring for the night with a three-run blast off rookie Jose Urquidy in the second inning before connecting on his 18th long ball of the season in the sixth. The two-homer performance ended a 15-game skid in which Perez contributed just three extra-base hits (all doubles) while batting just .167. Perez's elevated strikeout rate (27.5 percent) may continue to make him prone to prolonged cold spells, but the unforeseen power spike he's enjoyed this season has already made him a good value for those who roster him.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians' Roberto Perez: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians' Roberto Perez: Gets maintenance day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

July 6, 2019 10:36 PM
Indians' Roberto Perez: Collects four hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer in a 7-2 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Perez's home run in the eighth inning provided the Indians with a 4-2 lead, and they tacked on a few insurance runs in the following frame for good measure. The 30-year-old went into Wednesday's game in 4-for-24 slump with 13 strikeouts, but he has six hits -- including two homers and a triple -- in his last two contests.

July 4, 2019 09:40 PM
Indians' Roberto Perez: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

Perez went 2-for-3 with a home run, triple, walk, two RBI and two runs Wednesday in the Indians' 4-0 win over the Royals. Now up to 15 home runs on the campaign, Perez has almost doubled up his previous career-best total (eight) from any of his prior five seasons in the majors. His 28.5 percent strikeout rate will continue to make him a batting-average risk, but the power he provides behind the plate is enough to make him a worthy roster option even in most leagues that start only one catcher. Kevin Plawecki will step in as the Indians' backstop in the series finale in what amounts to a maintenance day for Perez.

June 29, 2019 01:20 PM
Indians' Roberto Perez: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

June 15, 2019 05:56 PM
Indians' Roberto Perez: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is not starting Saturday against Detroit, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

June 15, 2019 12:16 AM
Indians' Roberto Perez: Big day at dish
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's game against the Tigers.

Perez doubled home a pair of runs in the fourth inning, and he reached base twice more before the night was over. The 30-year-old backstop was 0-for-6 at the dish over his last two contests entering the day, but he managed to show some life with a multi-hit performance.

Indians' Roberto Perez: Rests Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians' Roberto Perez: Homers for third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-2 with a home run and two RBI during Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Twins.

Perez got his team on the board with a solo home run in the fifth inning, giving three home runs over his last three games. He drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in the seventh, giving him eight over his last 10 games. Moreover, Perez's 10 homers are already a career high, and his .799 OPS would easily be a personal best as well.
