Perez was non-tendered by the Braves on Thursday.

He suffered a broken hand in late August last season, but that is not the main reason the Braves declined to extend him a contract. In Atlanta's intensive rebuild, players like Perez who require arbitration offers and do not fit into their long-term plans have no place on the roster. He hit .269 but slugged just .303 in 133 plate appearances last year, and should struggle to gain fantasy relevance, regardless of what team he catches on with this winter.
