Roberto Perez, Francisco Lindor excited about returning to Puerto Rico to play |

From Paul Hoynes:

Perez and Lindor made trips to Puerto Rico during the offseason. Perez returned right after the Indians were eliminated from the postseason by the Yankees in October because his mother’s house in Mayaguez was destroyed.

”I went for three days right after we were eliminated,” said Perez. “It was a disaster. My mom lost her home. I had to go home and see for myself. It was hard to see.”

Mayaguez is on the western side of Puerto Rico. The house that was destroyed was the house Perez grew up in.

”She lost everything,” said Perez, “but she’s doing fine. She’s staying with my aunt until we build her a new house. I think she’s happy about that.”

Perez, who signed a four-year deal with the Indians at the start of the 2017 season, is helping pay for the new home.
