by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Indians catcher Yan Gomes is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Mariners. Gomes was activated off of the disabled list on May 24 and has been catching every-other-game since his return. So, since he caught Thursday's game, he will sit on Friday with Roberto Perez getting the start behind the plate.

However, manager Terry Francona said Gomes is likely to catch Saturday and Sunday, with the team being off Monday, according to MLB.com

For Perez, it was his fourth home run of the season. He's now slashing .183/.343/.378.

Indians give struggling catcher Roberto Perez day off Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Indians catcher Roberto Perez is being held out of the starting lineup on Wednesday against the White Sox. Perez had started four straight for manger Terry Francona, as he continues to struggle offensively. Perez is just 4 for his last 23 with zero RBI over that span.

Brett Hayes will draw the start behind the plate and bat eighth on Wednesday. 


Indians C Yan Gomes could be nearing return soon


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/12/2015) Indians catcher Yan Gomes performed agility drills in the outfield and is running the bases again on Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Gomes is working his way back from a sprained MCL suffered earlier this season. The team has not announced plans for next steps, though if he makes it through Tuesday's workout without issue, he could begin a rehab assignment in short order.

Roberto Perez, who is batting a meager .173 on the season, continues to be the starting catcher in Gomes' absence.


Indians RHP Corey Kluber still missing C Yan Gomes


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Indians supposed ace and reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber is still missing injured catcher Yan Gomes. And the numbers back it up, per Fox Sports.

Since the start of 2014, he is 18-9 with a 2.39 ERA when Gomes catches and 0-5 with a 5.13 ERA with anyone else behind the dish. Kluber sported a 2.63 ERA this year when Gomes was lost. He is 0-4 with a 6.10 ERA pitching to Roberto Perez.

Gomes, who is rehabbing ahead of schedule, is expected back in about four weeks.


Indians manager Terry Francona loads up on lefties Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) With a right-hander slated to toe the rubber for the Royals on Thursday, Indians manager Terry Francona has produced a heavy lefty-hitting lineup.

David Murphy returns to the starting lineup as the designated hitter, while Nick Swisher gets a rest after playing in two straight since returning from a DL stint.

Michael Bourn, who will be benched against lefties for the near future, was back in the lineup batting seventh and playing center field. 

Switch-hitter Jose Ramirez slides in at shorstop to replace Mike Aviles. The Indians' lineup contains just one natural right-handed hitter, catcher Roberto Perez.


Indians catcher Brett Hayes back in the starting lineup Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Indians' Corey Kluber, Roberto Perez still learning to work together


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Indians starter Corey Kluber hasn't looked like the pitcher that won last season's Cy Young Award. Part of the reason may be the other half of the battery.

Catcher Yan Gomes has been on the disabled list with a knee injury, and Kluber is still adjusting to work with Roberto Perez

"There's obviously a difference," Kluber said, per MLB.com. "Whether it be myself with Yan, or somebody that gets traded, for example, there's always a period where you've got to work to know what each other wants to do. I think that's normal for any player to go through. It's not just Roberto and myself."

"There's no secret how comfortable Klubes and Gomer were," manager Terry Francona said. "That was a pretty special relationship that you want. ... When a guy like Gomes goes down, you don't have a Gomes sitting on the bench. I think we're pretty fortunate where we are, but they're not going to have that same sync. It's impossible."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The rest of the Indians lineup is unchanged from Thursday's game against Toronto. 


Indians' Roberto Perez collects three hits, homers Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Indians catcher Roberto Perez came a triple short of a cycle Wednesday, going 3 for 3 with a walk, a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 7-5 win over the Royals.

Perez tied the game with his RBI double in the sixth inning and scored the go-ahead run on a subsequent double by the next batter. He then extended the lead on a solo home run in the eighth. The home run was his third of the season but the double was the first for Perez, who has hit .225/.319/.475 with six RBI in 40 at-bats.

Indians' Roberto Perez swinging hot bat against righties


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Perez is serving as the team's starting catcher while Yan Gomes is on the disabled list, and he's continuing to struggle against southpaws after going 4 for 24 against them last season. The Indians will square off against lefty John Danks and the White Sox Monday.

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."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
