The Cleveland Indians released RP Chris Perez Thursday, Oct. 31, and re-signed 1B Jason Giambi to an undisclosed deal.
Fantasy Tip: Perez was demoted late in the regular season in favor of Joe Smith. Smith will likely enter spring training as the favorite to take the role over full time, but Cody Allen and Bryan Shaw could make some noise if Smith struggles out of the gates.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona praised 1B Jason Giambi for mentoring any and all players on the team this year. "I've never had a guy like this," Francona said. "He's like a walking manager in the clubhouse. People talk about how you need a veteran guy like this for your young players. Heck, with him, it's every player. There's not a player in that (locker) room he can't talk to -- and who isn't really happy to see him coming over. He's been so much help to me in this job, I can't even describe it."
Fantasy Tip: Although Giambi isn't making much of an impact on the field these days, his contributions mentoring the entire team has paid immediate dividends for the team's chemistry, it seems. File this under the category of intangibles. Unfortunately, it won't help out in fantasy circles.
