CLEVELAND (AP) -- Indians closer Chris Perez had his court appearance on drug charges moved to next month. Perez and his wife, Melanie, recently pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor drug abuse after a package containing marijuana was delivered to their rental home in Rocky River, Ohio. Perez's attorney, Terry Gilbert, said Wednesday that the two-time All-Star's court appearance was waived. Perez is due in court on July 9. Police said they were tipped off by postal inspectors to suspicious packages mailed to the Perez home and arranged a delivery under surveillance on June 4. Perez was on the disabled list at the time of his arrest. He made a minor league rehab appearance at Double-A Akron Tuesday and was rocked for five runs in one inning. He had expected to be activated Friday.
