Chris Perez may appeal fine

Chris Perez said he may appeal a $750 fine he was given for a tweet following the April 14 dispute between the Indians and Royals.

Perez's tweet read, "Huge team win tonight, time for a sweep of the Royals. It's not 'Our Time,' it's TribeTime. P.S. You hit us, we hit you. Period." Joe Garagiola Jr., MLB's dean of discipline, said the tweet, "demonstrated a reckless disregard for the players on both clubs," but Perez disagrees, also noting that Jack Hannahan was ejected during the game but only was fined $500. "How do you justify that? [Hannahan] got thrown out of the game for being aggressive and instigating and he got fined less than I did?" Perez said. "But I showed reckless disregard for safety? I just don't understand." Perez was not suspended for his actions.
