SAN FRANCISCO -- Indians catching prospect Roberto Perez has enjoyed a torrid start to his season with Triple-A Columbus. This is more than just a strong first month for the catcher. It is an incredible comeback story.
Ross Atkins, Cleveland's vice president of player development, revealed Sunday that Perez dealt with Bell's palsy for most of last season, but played through the condition. For most of Perez's time at Triple-A last year, he suffered from partial paralysis of the left side of his face, resulting in problems with his left eye.
"About maybe a week after he was in Columbus, he got Bell's palsy in his face," Atkins said. "He literally could not close his eye for months. He had to put a patch on to sleep."
Atkins said the issue did not really calm down until Spring Training prior to this season.Link

In the meanwhile Holt stays with the Tribe and gets some playing time.Makes sense in the short term because it gives the Tribe someone that can come in and play late innining defense for Raburn and Aviles as well as be used as a pinch runner.
