Indians Put Chris Perez On DL

The Cleveland Indians placed closer Chris Perez on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness, the team announced Monday.

It’s the first career trip to the disabled list for the 27-year-old Perez. He was scheduled to be examined and have an MRI in Cleveland on Monday.

The right-handed Perez felt stiff while warming up Sunday and was forced out of Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox with two outs and a 2-1 count on Jacoby Ellsbury.
