24-year old righty reliever Chris Perez could be the Indians’ closer of the future. He came over from the Cardinals in the Mark DeRosa trade and got off to a rough start. But, he’s on fire right now earning a lot of work late in ballgames. Perez has pitched in 20 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this season and he is 0-0 with 1 save, a 2.75 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only allowed 13 hits in 19 2/3 innings for the Tribe while striking out 22 batters. At the time of this trade I thought it was a good move for both teams. But in the end this trade will look really good for the Indians as Perez and Jess Todd could both become mainstays in the Tribe’s bullpen down the road.
