Indians closer Chris Perez has been fined $750 by Major League Baseball for a "reckless" message on his Twitter account after a benches-clearing incident in Kansas City.

After pitchers for the Indians and Royals hit batters, touching off two benches-clearing incidents last Saturday, Perez posted a message on his account that said:

"Huge team win tonight; time for a sweep to tell the Royals it's not 'Our Time', it's (hash) TribeTime. P.S. You hit us, we hit you. Period."
