Dodgers Injury Report: Chris Perez activated

By on 9/01/2014 07:00:00 PM

According to Alanna Rizzo, the Los Angeles Dodgers have activated former Indians closer, Chris Perez from the disabled list after he has completed his rehab.  
Through five minor league innings, Perez gave up five earned runs and struck out two batters.  Hitters also batted a robust .324 against him during his rehab outings.

After a rough season last year, the former all-star closer struggled in his first year in Los Angeles this season.  In 42 games this year, Perez has allowed 22 earned runs and has a 5.03 ERA.

At one point in his career, he was viewed as one of the top closers in the game.  He saved 75 games between 2011-2012.  If he is ever going to regain that role he will need to rebound his career quickly upon his return.

Though he has struggled this season, Perez has experience and an arm that could greatly benefit the Dodgers down the stretch.  With closing experience in his background, he is an arm that has seen plenty of meaningful innings his past.
