Cleveland GM Chris Antonetti was interviewed yesterday on the MLB Network. Here is the video of that interview-
Highlights of the interview-
“Antonetti on Chris Perez and how vocal he is: ‘I think with Chris, everything’s coming from the right place with him. He’s a guy that’s a great teammate. He really believes in himself and the team that we’ve built here. I think what he’s trying to say is we’ve got a great team that’s been very competitive in a great environment and wants our fans to come out and enjoy the game. I think that’s the foundation from which Chris’s comments have come. Obviously, we’d maybe wish he’d choose his words a little bit differently, but they’re coming from the right place.’”
“Antonetti on Grady Sizemore’s rehabilitation: ‘Grady’s been rehabbing. He’s a little bit further behind. He’s a couple of weeks away right now. He’s hitting on the field. He’s started throwing, but he’s yet to start running…Hopefully, after the All-Star break, he’ll pick those up and he’ll be able to rejoin the team shortly thereafter.’”
“Antonetti on how much salary the team can take on: ‘Right now, we anticipate having any means of financial flexibility to improve the team. We have not been given any direction otherwise. I think the Dolans have a demonstrated track record of showing that when the team is in the hunt, they’ll give us the resources we need to improve the team.’”
