Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 3. C Brett Hayes will be the starting catcher for the Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not had much success at the plate this season but both of his hits on the season have been home runs. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 1. C Brett Hayes is starting behind the plate and batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been widely inconsistent this season with two three-hit games and eight hitless showings over his last 10 outings. He is a high-risk, high-reward option for daily contests. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2%) has gone 1-for-11 at the plate this season, and cap relief is the only thing he brings to the FantasyScore table.

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez snapped an 0-for-18 slide Wednesday, April 29, against the Kansas City Royals, posting a home run and finishing with three hits, two RBIs, a walk and three runs scored.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800; or 5.6% of cap) continues to fill in for the injured Yan Gomes, but he hasn't done much of anything lately. Perhaps this will get him back on track and make him attractive to FantasyScore players again.

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 25. C Brett Hayes will be the starting catcher for the Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) played Friday, April 24, so he is probably receiving a day off. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received only five at-bats this season and probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

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.

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (rest) is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. C Roberto Perez is taking his place, batting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Remove Gomes from your daily lineups. He merely is getting a spell for this day game. Along with his breakthrough season, he has enjoyed July with a .333-4-11 line in 54 AB.

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez entered Monday, July 7, with a .305 average and 20 extra-base hits with 43 RBI in 53 games at Triple-A Columbus. The team might move to add a backup catcher to the roster, and Perez is considered an internal option.

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez, who is currently at Triple-A Columbus, is hitting .410 (16 for 39) with two doubles, three home runs and 27 RBIs. Perez hit .172 last year but is fully healthy following a bout with Bell's Palsy, a form of facial paralysis, a year ago. The Indians may add Perez to the active roster for a stretch if C Yan Gomes elects paternity leave; Gomes' wife, Jenna, is pregnant.
