Rafael Perez On The Mend

The Indians have been without reliever Rafael Perez since April 26th. That could change soon.

The left hander is expected to start a rehab appearance in AA Akron tomorrow night. He's been out with an injured lat muscle. Perez would be a welcome edition to the pen, other left handers like Tony Sipp and Nick Hagadone have struggled. Hagadone also recently was injured.
