CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Many people feel that the Indians are going to for sure hang on to closer Chris Perez going into 2013. That doesn’t mean though that teams are not interested in him.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers have interest in a closer, and Perez is somewhere at the top of their list.

The report is that Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan is the first choice of the Dodgers, but Perez or Mets reliever Bobby Parnell are also included in the list.

Los Angeles has pitching to offer, as Heyman reports that veterans Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang are available for the right relief pitcher.

Perez last season was 0-4 with a 3.59 ERA with 39 saves for the Tribe. Some feel that his comments about the lack of attendance and the issues with former manager Manny Acta may be reason enough to ship him out.

If the Dodgers can’t land Hanrahan, who also is getting interest from the Red Sox, they may turn their interest to Perez and the Indians depending on the asking price.
