The Padres released Perdomo (elbow) on Monday. Perdomo is set to miss the entire 2021 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Once healthy, the 27-year-old will likely have to settle for a minor-league contract with another organization.
Perdomo (elbow) was designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday. Perdomo wasn't going to play a role for the Padres in 2021 even if he remained on the 40-man roster, as he'll miss the entire season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He'll now be available for other teams to claim should they want to pay his contract during his recovery in order to have him for the 2022 campaign. With a career 5.19 ERA in 444.1 total big-league innings, however, Perdomo may not be the most attractive candidate for that sort of move, especially as 2022 will be his age-29 season.
Perdomo underwent Tommy John surgery last week, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Perdomo missed time in early September with right forearm inflammation, but the injury was evidently much more severe than originally reported. The timing of the surgery means he'll miss the entirety of the 2021 season, but he should be ready to go for spring training in 2022.
Perdomo was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday. The 27-year-old was activated from the injured list last week and will head to the alternate site after making only one appearance. Perdomo has a 5.71 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB over 17.1 innings this season.
Perdomo (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday. Perdomo spent time on the shelf while recovering from right forearm inflammation, but he'll return after a relatively brief absence. The right-hander has made nine appearances (one start) this season, posting a 5.06 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 16 innings.
