MLB: Indians CP Chris Perez Won't Speak With Local Media

Cleveland Indians closing pitcher Chris Perez refuses to speak with the local media.

Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Perez refuses to speak with the local media. 

Perez came up to his manager Terry Francona at the conclusion of the Indians' 4-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers which saw him giving up four runs in the ninth inning. Francona said Perez told him he simply blew it. 

"CP said,'I felt great, I just blew the game.'"

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer notes Perez hasn't spoken with the media since June 27 - a stretch of almost a month-and-a-half. That was the date he came back from the disabled list. 

The trend continued after the loss to the Tigers on Monday. Perez's teammates were left to answer some of the media's questions, notes Hoynes. 

All Perez told reporters the day after was he won't talk for the rest of the year. 

"I'm not talking the rest of the year. Quit asking."

According to Jim Ingraham of Northern Ohio's Lorain Mourning Journal, Perez's actions seem to be at odds with the all-for-one atmosphere Francona is trying to establish in the Indians clubhouse. However, Francona wasn't very upset about the development.  

"It is his personal choice. We try to foster an environment of guys being accountable, but it's not always a perfect world."

Perez is a two-time MLB All-Star who was arrested earlier this season on misdemeanor drug charges. 

In 36 games for the Indians in 2013, the 28-year-old Perez has a 4-2 win-loss record to go along with 30 strikeouts and a 3.53 ERA.
