Perez went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's loss to the Reds. Perez did not start Tuesday, but he still played the final six innings of the game after entering in place of Travis Shaw, who was forced to exit with a bruised knee. Perez has not started a game since Sept. 12, and as long as Shaw is not facing an extended absence, Perez will likely continue operating mainly as a reserve the rest of the way.
Perez went 2-for-2 with an RBI and two runs scored off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Reds. Perez's two hits Tuesday were his first since Aug. 15. He started six of the Brewers' first 12 games this month, but has started just once in the 11 games since. Expect the more recent trend to be more indicative of his playing time the rest of the way.
Perez went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs. Even though the Brewers added infielders Mike Moustakas and Jonathan Schoop prior to the trade deadline, Perez has remained in an active role, especially in the past couple weeks. Dating back to Aug. 4, he has started five of the Brewers' past 10 games, going 10-for-26 (.385 average) with three extra-base hits and a pair of RBI. It's unlikely that Perez will get enough opportunities to provide much value moving forward, but it's evident that manager Craig Counsell believes there are enough at-bats to go around to keep the infielder in the lineup on a semi-regular basis.
Perez went 2-for-4 with a triple, a solo home run and two runs scored Saturday against the Rockies. Perez recorded his ninth home run of the season, going back-to-back with Travis Shaw in the first inning against left-hander Tyler Anderson. With both Mike Moustakas and Orlando Arcia on the bench, Perez got the start at shortstop -- he later shifted to right field -- and continued his strong season-long production against southpaws by launching his sixth home run against them in 82 at-bats. He isn't likely to see regular playing time, but has both power and stolen-base upside -- he's stolen nine bags this season -- when he is in the starting lineup.
Perez hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals. The game was already well out of reach for Milwaukee, but Perez at least prevented the Brewers from being shut out. He was riding the pine for a second straight day against a right-hander, but this should help Perez's case for more starts at the keystone over Brad Miller in the immediate future.
