Any word in Perez? It looked like he might've pulled or popped something in the 9th


Recommended Posts

I had left the bar/restaurant I was watching the game at when it happened so I didn't see what he grabbed. 

I hope it's not an oblique, but most pitchers that have to come out of a game typically are heading for the IL.

The Yankees just DFA'd Nick Ramirez for some reason even though he was pretty good last year and had a good spring training. He's kinda of like Perez in that he doesn't get a ton of strikeouts, but does get grounders. The only issue with Ramirez is he's a reverse split guy who gets righties out much better than lefties, so the Orioles may just bring up Vespi. 

I have to say though that Luis Gonzalez was pretty impressive at times this spring and in his first game with Norfolk. 

They got a lot of options to replace him if he goes on the IL. Hopefully it's not a long term thing though.

The way Perez looked this spring, some DL time and then an extended rehab stint in the minors wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.  He kind of needed a reset.  

He wasn't good last year in the spring either if I recall. His velocity looked fine in his five pitches before the injury.

I won't be surprised at all if we claim Nick Ramirez, but he'd have to make it to us unless NY wants to do a cash trade. Ramirez doesn't throw hard but he's definitely worth a claim.

Perez had his first rehab outing today: double, RBI single, pickoff, fly out, ground out.  Three of the batted balls were 95-97 mph, the exception being the 67 mph RBI single.  He threw 13 pitches (10 strikes): only one four seamer, at 95.9 mph, 5 sinkers averaging 94.8, 6 sliders and one curve.  Each pitch type yielded one ball in play, with the slider yielding the 67 mph RBI single.  Overall, he didn’t fool anyone but threw strikes and showed good velocity first time out.  Decent first outing.
