Indians have full confidence in Roberto Perez as starting catcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Indians catcher Roberto Perez said he is ready for the everyday role behind the plate with starter Yan Gomes sidelined 6-8 weeks due to a knee injury.

"My mentality hasn't changed," Perez said, per MLB.com. "I always come to the field ready to play. I pretend like I'm going to play that day, so nothing changes."

The Indians appear to have full confidence in Perez, who was lauded for his defense in the minors.

"He's a backup here because we have Yan Gomes," said Sandy Alomar Jr., the Indians' first-base coach and a former major-league catcher. "Anywhere else, he could start.

"He's a good catcher, man. He's prepared. We're in good hands behind the dish until Gomer gets back. It's a big loss for us having Yan Gomes out, but I think Roberto is going to do a good job."

The Indians are also confident Perez can get the job done offensively. Perez hit .305 with eight home runs and 43 RBI in 53 games at Triple-A last season.

"He really kind of turned it around," manager Terry Francona said. "His batting average or whatever, that's not the end all, be all. But the fact that he's a threat when he's hitting is important, because he can drive the ball out of the ballpark. He has improved dramatically."


Report: Indians OK with Perez as starting catcher with Gomes out


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) The Indians don't plan to seek a starting catcher with Yan Gomes sidelined 6-8 weeks due to an MCL sprain, according to FOX Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal. 

The team views Roberto Perez as a capable starter, but the team could look for an upgrade at backup catcher over Brett Hayes.


Indians' Brett Hayes to join roster Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Indians catcher Brett Hayes will join the major-league roster Tuesday to serve as the team's backup catcher while Yan Gomes recovers from a knee sprain, MLB.com reports.

Hayes hit just .135/.151/.212 in 52 at-bats with the Royals last season. First baseman Carlos Santana will be the team's emergency catcher Sunday if Roberto Perez can't go the full game.


Indians catcher Yan Gomes leaves with right leg injury Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Indians catcher Yan Gomes left Saturday's game against the Tigers with a right leg injury after Rajai Davis slid into home plate in the ninth inning. 

Gomes was covering the plate on a grounder to first with the bases loaded when Carlos Santana tried to get the force at home. Davis went straight into what appeared to be Gomes' right ankle. He needed assistance to get back to the dugout to be further evaluated. Roberto Perez replaced Gomes behind the plate.

Manager Terry Francona said that Gomes had a right knee sprain, per MLB.com. He's scheduled to get an MRI on Sunday morning. 


Roberto Perez homers in big-league debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) The Indians got a big performance from catcher Roberto Perez in his major-league debut Thursday, in a 9-3 win over the Yankees.

Perez reached base three times in the win, going 2 for 3 with a walk. He added a home run and two RBI, while scoring twice.

Perez spent two days on the roster before getting his first action, so it is not clear how much playing time he might find moving forward. 


Indians spin revolving door between Cleveland and Columbus


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Indians have made a flurry of moves, including the placing of starter Justin Masterson on the disabled list with a knee issue.

They have promoted catcher Roberto Perez and left-handed reliever Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus and demoted outfielder Tyler Holt .

Perez will be making his first trip to the big leagues. He leads the Clippers in batting at .305 with eight home runs and 43 RBI.


Francisco Lindor, Tyler Naquin receive spring invites


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Indians announced Wednesday they invited six players to spring training as non-roster invites. Among the players receiving invites were shortstop Francisco Lindor, who is considered the team's top prospect by Baseball America, and outfielder Tyler Naquin, who is considered the Indians' fourth-best prospect.

The remaining players receiving invites were catcher Jake Lowery, catcher Roberto Perez, infielder Joey Wendle and catcher Tony Wolters.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
