Perez was released by the Indians on Thursday.
The Indians wasted little time in releasing Perez, who lost his job as closer in late September after blowing a save and being booed off the field by his home fans. Perez posted a 7.52 ERA over the final two months of the season, following a stint on the DL with a shoulder injury earlier in the year. He'll latch on elsewhere, but the right-hander will likely fill a setup role initially.
