Indians manager Terry Francona just announced that the Indians will activate closer Chris Perez from the disabled list Thursday, which means he’ll end up missing exactly a month with a strained shoulder.

During that time Perez was arrested and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession for allegedly having pot delivered to his house in his dog’s name. Perez and his wife have pleaded not guilty to the charges and a hearing has been scheduled for next month.

Perez had a very shaky first rehab outing, allowing five runs on three homers, but apparently looked good enough while throwing a 1-2-3 inning yesterday at Single-A to convince the Indians he’s ready.

    Tribe fans greeting this info with: “Oh good, here it comes again.”

    Pestano is a good late-inning pitcher, just needs more appearances to get it together.
    Why bring back Perez?

    It’s high time for that dog to admit that he had a problem and get some help. The fact that he is trying to stick these charges on his owners is absolutely despicable. No cat would ever do that. Goddamn dogs.
