CLEVELAND -- Indians All-Star closer Chris Perez will not throw for a week after an MRI revealed tendinitis in his right shoulder. Perez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday before the Indians opened a two-game series in Cincinnati. He underwent tests in Cleveland, which showed "mild" tendinitis of his rotator cuff. The Indians said their plan is for Perez not to pick up a baseball for at least five days in the hopes that rest will reduce the soreness in his shoulder. The test results are encouraging for the Indians, who feared they might be without the two-time AL All-Star for a longer period. "Its structurally good," manager Terry Francona said before the final game of their series in Cincinnati on Tuesday night. "Its good news. So well give him five days of no throwing, then hell be re-evaluated then. When theyre completely gone -- the symptoms -- hell start a throwing program." Perez last pitched on Sunday in the ninth inning of a 6-5 loss to Boston. The right-hander was in the process of blowing a three-run lead when he felt a "pinch" in his shoulder and had to leave the game. Perez missed almost a month during training camp in Arizona with soreness in his shoulder and it has lingered throughout the early part of the regular season. He felt discomfort on May 12 while warming up in Detroit and was not brought in for a save situation. Perez will likely make a few rehabilitation appearances in the minors before hes activated by the Indians. Hes eligible to come off the DL June 11. While Perez is sidelined, Vinnie Pestano has taken over closing duties for the scuffling Indians, who have lost four straight and six of seven entering Tuesdays game against the Reds. Joe Smith will slide into Pestanos setup role. Perez is 2-1 with a 4.32 ERA and six saves in eight chances in 17 outings. In his last three games, Perez has allowed seven runs and five hits with five walks. However, its not just his pitching that has been an issue for the colorful reliever. He recently deactivated his Twitter account after two rough outings because of negative comments he received from some followers. Perez issued a statement through the team last week saying he intended to focus on his performance and did not want to be a distraction to his teammates. Cheap Cubs Jerseys Authentic . Sgt.

PHOENIX -- As if the Arizona Coyotes have not gone through enough this season ...Arizona lost its fourth straight game Thursday and also lost key contributor Brad Richardson for an extended period when he suffered a two broken bones in his right leg in a 3-2 overtime loss at Vancouver on Thursday.San Jose, meanwhile, looks to finish a six-game road trip on a high note when it visits the Coyotes on Saturday at Gila River Arena.At the least, the Coyotes are expected to start No. 1 goaltender Mike Smith, who made his first appearance in a month in a 2-1 overtime loss at Calgary on Wednesday. Smith had not played since suffering a lower-body injury early in a 7-4 loss at Ottawa in the second game of the season Oct. 18.San Jose (9-8) is three points behind Pacific Division-leading Anaheim. The Sharks lost to Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup Finals last year.The Coyotes (5-9-2) have 12 points, the fewest in the league, although they have played two fewer games than all but one of the teams in the Pacific.The Sharks are 3-2 on the trip but have lost the last two games while scoring only two goals. They were 0-for-6 on the power play in a 3-2 loss at St. Louis on Thursday.Weve got to find a way to cash in when we get the chance, coach Pete DeBoer said.San Jose will be without center Tomas Hertl, who suffered a lower body injury against St. Louis and returned to the Bay Area for further evaluation Friday.Defenseman Brett Burns leads the Sharks with six goals and is tied with center Joe Pavelski for the team lead with 14 points. Pavelski has five goals and center Logan Couture has four.Sometimes it feels like were forcing plays through bodies, through sticks, Couture said. Other times if feels like were not shooting the puck, not getting motion toward the net, not getting second and third opportunities. Feels like were one shot and out, which isnt us. We uusually shoot the puck, get it back, shoot it again.ddddddddddddRichardson suffered fractures to his right tibia and right fibula in a collision with Vancouver defenseman Nikita Tryamkin midway through the second period Thursday in the loss to the Canucks.Richardson, who scored his fifth goal of the season as the Coyotes took a 2-0 lead, underwent surgery in Vancouver on Friday morning and was stabilized, the Coyotes said.Hes a real heart-and-soul player, Arizona coach Dave Tippett told the teams website. Were thin at center ice and we lose a key guy there, it takes a toll on us.The Coyotes did not announce a timetable for Richardsons return, but it appears his second season with the team is in jeopardy.Richardson, 31, is tied for second on the team in goals and tied for third with nine points. He is in the second year of a three-year, $6.25 million contract, and was signed as a free agent to add a veteran presence to a young team. He had 11 goals and a career-high 31 points last season, his 11th in the league.In his absence, young centers Christian Dvorak and Dylan Strome could receive more playing time. Strome, 19, was the Coyotes first-round pick in the 2015 draft, the third player taken overall. He played Thursday after missing the previous four games a healthy scratch.Center Martin Hanzal, an unrestricted free agent next spring, had been mentioned in trade rumors, but it appears he is less likely to be moved now, if the Coyotes had ever considered a deal in the first place. Hanzal recently returned after missing five games with a lower body injury.Coyotes wing Shane Doan, who played on Richardsons line, had his 553rd assist on Richardsons goal Thursday, tying Thomas Steen for first place on the franchise list.
