Indians | Chris Perez to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks

Cleveland Indians RP Chris Perez (shoulder) will not pitch in a game for three to four weeks because of a sore right shoulder. Perez may not be ready for the start of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Vinnie Pestano likely would be the first in line for save opportunities if Perez misses any regular season games. Pestano could be a late-round option in American League-only leagues because he is still valuable even if he is not closing games. Pestano could also be an option late in mixed leagues as a handcuff to Perez.
