Perez continues to work in tandem with Yan Gomes as the Indians' preferred duo behind the plate, and things could remain that way for another year if the organization's desire to move Francisco Mejia away from the catcher spot continues to materialize. As part-time catchers go, Perez is slightly more interesting than some of the alternatives thanks to his ability to occasionally barrel up a pitch and drive a ball out of the park, but he's a career .216/.309/.362 hitter who seems unlikely to thrive if injuries created an opportunity for him to take on a larger role. That said, his defense is good enough that he could push for more playing time, particularly if Gomes continues to struggle at the plate. The quality of the lineup around him in Cleveland might be good enough to make him a passable second catcher for AL-only league players, but that's likely the extent of his value to fantasy players at the present time.

  2. Roberto Perez 2017 Preseason Outlook
    A broken thumb sustained on a tag in his fourth game of the season cost him almost the entire first half, and the results at the plate suggest that the thumb was a nagging issue after Perez returned immediately following the All-Star break. He was the primary backstop for Cleveland despite the offensive woes, as Perez started 47 of 67 games down the stretch. He will likely reprise his previous role as caddy to incumbent starting catcher Yan Gomes, whose own injury issues could open up a larger window for Perez's playing time at some point this season. Cleveland hopes an offseason of rest and rehabilitation will allow Perez to at least recoup some of the patience that went missing last season. Still, it's not a bad return for the 33rd-round pick that Cleveland invested in the 2008 draft in order to secure Perez's services. There's still a hint of power here that'll at least keep him on a watch list for players in two-catcher leagues.
  3. Roberto Perez 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Perez got a nice bump in playing time when starting catcher Yan Gomes suffered a knee injury in mid-April, finishing the season with a .228/.348/.402 line and hitting seven homers in 70 games for the Indians. He's never hit for much power in the minors (.710 OPS with 22 homers in 514 games) but did manage to hit eight in 209 plate appearances at Triple-A Columbus in 2014 so perhaps the power spike is legit. He's good enough defensively to warrant the occasional start and the added power, if it sticks, gives him a leg up on most reserves in deeper formats. Gomes had a disappointing season at the plate but Perez is of no threat to unseat him for the starting role so he'll be back as Gomes' backup again in 2016.
  4. Roberto Perez 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Although Perez did little with his limited opportunies in his reserve role behind Yan Gomes after his promotion in July, slashing .271/.311/.365 with one homer in 29 games, he flashed some promise in 53 games with Triple-A Columbus to begin the year. A 33rd-round pick in 2008, he hit .305/.405/.517 with eight homers while at Columbus, doubling his home run total from his previous two years combined, while adding 43 RBI and 29 walks. He also played above-average defense behind the plate, but strikeouts have been a major issue at each level (27.4% with the big club last season) and his .378 BABIP seems like an anomoly given his relatively low numbers in past years. Regardless, Carlos Santana's catching days are seemingly over, and Perez appears primed to spend 2015 as the full-time backup, with Tony Walters the only other catcher currently on the 40-man roster.
