Chris Perez eager to end period of silence as season concludes

Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez has had plenty of opinions this season as his team has remained near the bottom of the MLB standings, but the outspoken reliever has had to keep quiet as of late. The Indians' season is almost over, however, meaning his silence is likely to come to an end soon, as well.

Perez has kept his comments to himself ever since meeting with Cleveland general manager Chris Antonetti, but the reliever intimated on Tuesday night that the silence could soon be over.

Just a bit after getting his career-high 37th save on Tuesday night -- in his first save attempt since Sept. 13 -- Perez spoke to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Perez: "No comment. I have opinions, but I'm not going to say them right now."

As Perez walked away from reporters, he said, "It will be a fun last couple of days of the season when I'm allowed to talk again."

There's really not telling what Perez meant by that final comment, but one has to expect fireworks considering the amount of things Perez was willing to say mid-season.
