Miami had high expectations for Perez, but he has not lived up to them in three seasons. He has solid-average power and some feel for hitting, and his defensive tools should make him an average defender at short. His inconsistency has proved maddening to coaches and scouts, however. An injury sapped his arm strength this spring, and he wound up at DH and second base frequently after botching routine plays. At the plate, he gives away too many at-bats and is strikeout prone. He's an above-average runner who has first-five-round tools without the performance to go with it.
