  • Perez went 4-for-4 with three homers and five RBI in an 8-7 win Thursday over Milwaukee. Perez homered in the fourth, sixth and eighth innings in what is clearly his best offensive performance as a big-leaguer. He had never before had a multi-homer game let alone a three-homer outing. The catcher entered the game with a .129/.178/.235 line and three homers and six RBI in 91 plate appearances and nearly doubled his season total in both homers and RBI.

  • Perez will be on the bench Tuesday against the Nationals. Perez and Tyler Heineman appear to be in a platoon behind the plate at the moment. Perez has started against the last five righties the Pirates have faced, while Heineman's start here against southpaw Patrick Corbin means he's gotten the nod against three straight lefties.

  • Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Cubs. The 29-year-old backstop took Matt Swarmer deep in the second inning as the Pirates raced out to an early lead. Perez has three homers in 72 plate appearances on the season, but occasional pop is all he offers, and his .435 OPS is somehow even worse than his career .539 mark.
