Perez got on the map last summer by pitching well in the Cape Cod League, including hitting 93 mph with his fastball in the league's all-star game. He also made his name as a switch-pitcher, but his future as a pro is as a lefthanded reliever, because his righthanded stuff is pedestrian. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder has shown an average-to-above-average fastball from the left side, with his curve being an above-average to plus offering, and that's his meal ticket. He can locate the curve well and it has good depth. His righthanded arsenal is the same but less firm, with loopier action and shape for the curve. Perez was limited to pitching righthanded much of the spring due to a left triceps strain, and while he pitched well down the stretch, hitting 93 again, he also walked six and threw five wild pitches in four innings during a season-ending postseason loss.
