CHRIS PEREZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Former Indians 'colorful' closer Chris Perez retires

So Long, Chris Perez. Hello, Not Chris Perez

Goodbye, Chris Perez, for now, anyway. The much-maligned reliever has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with, oh, let’s say an ankle problem. (It’s officially “bone spurs,” but really, whatever. Maybe it’s real, maybe it’s not, maybe you don’t care.)

Is There Any Hope For Chris Perez Or Brandon League?

Will he improve? (via) The Dodgers have been relatively quiet this offseason, except in the bullpen. The most confusing signing of the bunch was that of Chris Perez, which doubled their number of “closers who lost their job last season because they were awful.” Brandon League also fits into that category, and probably isn’t going anywhere since he’s still owed 15 million...
