Chris Perez has been removed from today's pitching probables because of an injury.

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Paul Hoynes is reporting that Chris Perez has been removed from today's game due to an undisclosed injury:

We don't know if the injury is serious enough to keep him out of the World Baseball Classic, but I'm guessing that these two nuggets point towards the Indians keeping Perez out of the WBC because of the injury. Both Perez and Vinnie Pestano are scheduled to join Team USA next week.

Update: the injury is to Perez's throwing shoulder.

Which means that Perez will also miss the WBC, and might start the season on the Disabled List.
