    • Perez was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 28-year-old was apparently placed on waivers by the Rays, and the Pirates didn't allow him to get very far down the waiver order. Perez appeared in 38 games for Tampa Bay in 2020 and posted a .167/.237/.238 slash line with one home run and a 29 percent strikeout rate.

    • Perez went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Mets. Though Perez returned to the lineup after a two-game absence, he'll likely see his starting opportunities dwindle during the remainder of the regular season and the Rays' subsequent playoff run. Mike Zunino (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list over the weekend and is slated to take over as the Rays' No. 1 catcher.

    • Perez is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox. Perez only starts against right-handed pitchers, so it stands that he would head to the bench with southpaw Mike Kickham starting for Boston. Kevan Smith will start behind the dish and bat eighth.
