Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez would be the next man up to replace C Yan Gomes (unknown) after Gomes was helped off the field Saturday, April 11, against the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) went two for four with a home run, two RBI and one run in his lone start this season, and hit .271 with one home run and four RBI in 85 plate appearances in 2014. As most daily fantasy players elect to punt the catcher position, Perez will represent one of the cheapest options, and he does have some upside in his bat, if Gomes were to miss time.
