Chris Perez had trouble warming up yesterday

Watching the Tigers-Indians game yesterday and noticed that Chris Perez was warming up to come into a close, extra-innings game. Then he sat down and Terry Francona went with a combo of Rich Hill and Cody Allen in the 10th. What gives?

While warming up in the bullpen in the top of the ninth, Perez felt stiffness in his right shoulder and alerted bullpen coach Kevin Cash.

The Indians are playing a doubleheader against the Yankees today and Perez expects to be available. He said that, yesterday, it was just a matter of being cautious.  It’s also possible that the cold weather in Detroit had something to do with it all.  Worth watching, however.

    “Mr. Trask: Are you finished, Mr. Slade?

    Lt. Col. Frank Slade: No, I’m just gettin’ warmed up.”

    The only thing I took away from this (or cared about) was that I am glad to hear Kevin Cash is still employed in the majors

    Was he adopted? He doesn’t look Hispanic at all.
