FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING CLOSER NEWS: INDIANS CLOSER CHRIS PEREZ OUT 3-4 WEEKS WITH SHOULDER STRAIN, WILL START 2013 ON DL
Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez will be out the next 3-4 week with a right shoulder strain and will start the 2013 season on the DL. The announcement was made after Perez was scratched from his scheduled outing on Friday and he will not be a part of the World Baseball Classic.
Analysis: Vinny Pestano is now a must own in fall fantasy baseball leagues as he is the man who will inherit the ninth. Even though missing up to four weeks would put Perez right at the start of the season, he will still need to get ramped up and in pitching shape before he can be activated. Tough call for owners who draft from this point on as Pestano might only see a handful of chances before Perez gets the job back.
