Pre-Game Reading Material
- An MRI revealed no structural damage to Chris Perez's shoulder, and so the injury was diagnosed as "mild tendinitis." Perez will rest the shoulder 5-7 days and then resume throwing.
- Dr. Lewis Yocum, who performed countless elbow ligament replacement (or Tommy John) surgeries on MLB players, has passed away. Among current Indians who Yocum operated on: Vinnie Pestano, Mike Aviles, and most recently Josh Tomlin.
- Speaking of elbow, Brett Myers has been shut down for the next 5-7 days with a regularly scheduled setback.
- Dusty Baker has addressed his team about the Chapman/Swisher confrontation in the ninth inning yesterday. No details, though I'm guessing that he gave everyone instructions as to how to act in case the Indians retaliate tonight or later in the series.
