Key members of Indians bullpen hurt; Closer Perez (shoulder), longman Hermann (ligament)

One of the Cleveland Indians strengths in 2012 was their bullpen.

They feel that it’ll stay that way in 2013, but there are a couple of key personnel that have come up hurt as Spring Training camp continues.

All-Star closer Chris Perez could miss a month due to a strained right throwing shoulder.

Long reliever Frank Hermann suffered a sprained ligament in his throwing elbow on Monday. It is not known how long he will be out of action.

Perez saved 39 games last season and Hermann has a career record of 4.26 ERA with 72 strikeouts.

Closer Chris Perez (0-1, 2.59 ERA, 24-of-25 save opportunities) and setup man Vinnie Pestano (3-0, 1.85 ERA, 39 strikeouts in 35 innings) are putting together quite a reputation as the major leagues best late-inning duo.

Perez, who came over from the St. Louis Cardinals in a 2009 trade, is a 2-time All-Star, has a career record of 10-15, with an ERA of 3.06 and 92 saves.

Pestano is 4-2 in his MLB career with an ERA of 2.21 with 131 strikeouts.

Indians lose 16-inning, 5-hour marathon Opening Day game to Toronto


(courtesy of

Thursday’s Opening Day game epitomized many things.

Toronto utility player Omar Vizquel, a former Cleveland Indians star, played in left field and at first base, two positions he rarely ever plays.

But after all, if Indians closer Chris Perez had closed out a 4-1 lead 2 1/2 hours earlier, there would never have been a 5-hour, 14-minute, 16-inning affair nor would Vizquel have played those two positions.

The Indians lost 7-4 to the Blue Jays which is now the longest game in Opening Day history in Major League Baseball.

With about 5,000 fans left in stands at Progressive Field, Toronto won the game in the 16th on a three-run homer by J.P. Arencibia.

The Tribe wasted a great pitching performance by improving right-hander, Justin Masterson, who was cruising along with a 4-1 lead in eight innings and 10 strikeouts.

The Cleveland Indians received a strong start from Josh Tomlin on Wednesday, allowing two runs and nine hits in 5.2 innings of pitching.

However, the Indians wasted his outing losing to the Chicago Cubs 2-0.

The Tribe only had five hits, two from Jason Kipsnis.

Good news on the Chris Perez progress. The Cleveland closer will be making his first appearance today (Thursday) against Colorado. He’s been out of action since February 23 when an injury to the left oblique muscle occured.
