Description: Dodgers righthander Chris Perez pitched in the seventh and Brian Wilson came in for the eighth inning for the Dodgers in the season opener.
Insight: Neither gave up a run as they set up for closer Kenley Jansen. The Dodgers have assembled three closers to finish out games which could make it very tough on the opposition. Barring an injury to Jansen, however, Perez and Wilson will only have value in league which count holds.
 
12/23/2013 10:51:00 AM
Description: The Dodgers and righthander Chris Perez are putting the finishing touches on a new one-year deal according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Another one? How many closers do the Dodgers need? They already have Kenley Jansen and Brian Wilson, which means Perez, who made $7.4 million last season, won't even be a setup man in L.A. Cleveland recently replaced Perez with former Brewers closer John Axford. Fantasy owners can ignore Perez in 2014.

Description: The Indians released Chris Perez on Thursday. SOURCE: Jordan Bastian. MLB.com
Insight: It was only a matter of time. Perez was a disaster in the second half (5.60 ERA in 27 games) and was eventually demoted to a setup role late in the season. Perez throws upper 90s cheese but often has trouble locating. It shouldn't take the reliever too long to find a new team.
 
Cold9/27/2013 6:38:00 PM
Description: The Indians will use a committee at closer for the final three games.
Insight: Chris Perez has allowed seven hits (3 HR) and six earned runs over his last two appearances and the team cannot afford to let any games slip away at this point.
 
8/5/2013 10:43:00 PM
Description: Chris Perez's outing against Detroit on Monday night was a disaster.
Insight: He let up four runs without recording an out. It was Perez's first blown save since May 18th against Seattle. Perez is a talented guy but he's prone to blowups and Monday night would certainly qualify as one of those.
 
6/27/2013 4:34:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: Perez hasn't pitched since May 26 due to right shoulder soreness. He would have returned sooner but after he allowed three homers in his second rehab appearance the team decided to keep him on the DL for a few more appearances. He should regain the closer role from Vinnie Pestano immediately.
 
6/26/2013 5:24:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) will be activated Thursday, manager Terry Francona said, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Perez hasn't pitched since May 26 due to right shoulder soreness. He would have returned sooner but after he allowed three homers in his second rehab appearance the team decided to keep him on the DL for a few more appearances.
 
Cold6/23/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) is expected to be activated this week, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
Insight: Perez will throw a rehab game Tuesday or Wednesday before being activated from the DL. The closer hasn't pitched since May 26 due to right shoulder soreness. Perez is healthy now, but after he allowed three homers in his second rehab appearance the team decided to keep him on the DL for a few more appearances.
 
Cold6/19/2013 4:53:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) will not return from the DL Friday as originally planned, according to Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100.
Insight: He gave up three homers in a rehab game Tuesday with Double-A Akron, so he'll need a little more work.
 
Cold6/18/2013 9:36:00 PM
Description: Chris Perez got rocked in a rehab outing for Double-A Akron on Tuesday.
Insight: He surrendered five runs in one inning. Three of the five hits he allowed were home runs. The Indians were planning to activate Perez from the disabled list on Friday but now they might be having second thoughts.
 
6/17/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: According to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians plan to activate closer Chris Perez from the DL on Friday.
Insight: Perez (4.32 ERA, six saves) suffered a shoulder injury against the Red Sox a little less than a month ago. Vinnie Pestano stands to lose some of his fantasy value when Perez returns.
 
6/15/2013 5:32:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) will throw one inning Sunday in a minor league rehab game, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Perez should be back at the back end of Cleveland's bullpen a few days after Sunday's appearance.
 
6/11/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez (shoulder) threw off a mound Tuesday and will do so again Friday, according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
Insight: Perez is likely to go on a minor league rehab assignment after Friday's session and should be back next week at some point.
 
6/7/2013 7:01:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez has been charged with misdemeanor drug possession and is expected to plead not guilty, according to the Associated Press.
Insight: Police were tipped off to suspicious packages by postal inspectors and arranged a delivery Tuesday under surveillance to Perez's house. The packages reportedly contained just over one-third of a pound of marijuana. Perez is currently on the DL with a shoulder injury, and is not expected to face a suspension.
 
6/5/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez is part of an ongoing drug investigation by the Rocky River police, according to a Cleveland Plain Dealer report.
Insight: Perez was already sidelined by a strained rotator cuff injury. Vinnie Pestano may have to serve as interim closer a little longer than originally planned.
 
5/28/2013 4:47:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez has been diagnosed with mild tendinitis in his right rotator cuff. He'll be shut down from throwing for 5-7 days.
Insight: Perez has allowed seven earned runs over his last 2 2/3 innings and his ERA has jumped from 0.64 to 4.32 in the process. Vinnie Pestano will serve as the closer, though he allowed four runs in his last appearance and has a 5.25 ERA in 12 innings this season.
 
5/27/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez, who was pulled in the ninth inning after throwing a pitch to Jacoby Ellsbury and holding his right arm, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Perez is 2-1 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and six saves. The Indians have three possible replacements in Joe Smith, Vinnie Pestano and Cody Allen. We await word of who will get the closer's job in Perez's absence.
 
5/26/2013 5:03:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez was pulled in the ninth inning after throwing a pitch to Jacoby Ellsbury and holding his right arm. He gave up three walks, a double and a single before exiting.
Insight: Perez was 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and six saves heading into the game, but fantasy owners will have to stay on top of this injury to see the severity.
 
4/8/2013 9:40:00 PM
Description: Even after notching a save in each of the last two games, Indians closer Chris Perez has just five this year.
Insight: Perez hasn't been handed many save chances because most of Cleveland's wins have been of the blowout variety. He has a 0.75 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
 
4/2/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Indians closer Chris Perez, who dealt with a shoulder strain this spring, notched his first save of the season Tuesday against Toronto.
Insight: Perez was shut down for most of the spring but he has put the discomfort behind him. The closer came into the exact situation in the 2012 season opener -- a 4-1 lead against Toronto -- but he gave up three runs in a game that the Indians ended up losing in 16 innings. This is a markedly better beginning to his season.
