Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona is going to address a situation involving closer Chris Perez at his 11:30 a.m. pregame press conference today at Yankee Stadium. Perez, who is on the disabled list, is not with the team. A package, believed to contain marijuana, was reportedly delivered to Perez's Rocky River residence. Rocky River police are investigating but have not commented. According to sources, there is no connection between Perez and MLB's current investigation into players using performance-enhancing drugs and their links to a Miami-area clinic. Perez is on the DL with a strained rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
