Martin Perez (SP, TEX)

Chris Lacey - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting

ANALYSIS: Perez has pitched well for the Rangers with a 2.08 ERA in 30.1 innings pitched. He has only surrendered two home runs while striking out 16 and allowing just two runs in his last 18 innings pitched. The opposition is hitting .279 against him this season, though lefties are hitting him hard, to the tune of a .324 BA against him in 2013. When the pressure is on he seems to pitch better, as indicated by him holding the opposition to a .214 BA in this scenario. He might be squeezed for playing time with Alexi Ogando returning from the DL, but continue scouting Perez in case an opening presents itself.
