Originally written August 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
If the Cleveland Indians wanted to shop Asdrubal Cabrera and Chris Perez this season, there would be some bites.  This, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, is certain despite both players' recent struggles.  Hoynes suggested that Perez's shoulder never had a chance to completely heal, but regardless he feels teams will be interested in both players. Cabrera may not be 100 percent healthy, and Perez has battled both injuries and legal problems.  However, the market for infielders and back of the bullpen pitchers is not always great.  This offseason could be a good example of that.  Cabrera and Perez could be nice trade chips if the Indians want to go in another direction. Cabrera is hitting just .237/.292/.389.  It's clearly a down year, but the past two seasons before this one have shown what Cabrera can do.  Teams will still be interested in his potential as he is just 27 years old.  Cabrera was an All-Star in 2011 and 2012. Perez, on the other hand, has more than just performance issues.  He and his wife were arrested for possession of marijuana when they allegedly had the drug shipped to their home.  Beyond that, Perez battled a shoulder injury this season that landed him on the DL.  Overall, though, Perez has helped the Indians.  He is 5-2 with a 3.30 ERA.  He also has 20 saves on the season.
