Roberto Perez suffers concussion during Indians loss to A’s
CLEVELAND– Roberto Perez left Tuesday night’s game against Oakland in the fourth inning with a head injury.
Earlier in the game, a ball hit the Indians catcher in his mask. He stayed in for an another inning, then was replaced by Kevin Plawecki.
Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Perez was diagnosed with a mild concussion. The team has not decided whether to put him on the seven-day injured list.
The Tribe will recall catcher Eric Haase. He was pulled from the game in the middle of his at-bat for the Columbus Clippers on Tuesday because of news of Perez’s injury.
The A’s beat the Indians, 5-3.
