  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Improves to 7-2

    Perez (7-2) earned the win over the Mets on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four over 6.2 innings.

    Perez was tagged for two homers in the contest, but those were the only hits that produced any runs for the Mets. He continues to go deep into games regularly -- this was the 13th time in 16 starts this season that he has completed at least six innings. Perez has tallied 12 quality starts among those outings, tied for fourth in the majors. The veteran southpaw has been one of the game's most pleasant surprises on the mound this season, posting a 2.34 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 7-2 record over 100 innings.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Pitches around trouble in win

    Perez (5-2) earned the victory Tuesday over Philadelphia, striking out six in six scoreless innings while allowing six hits and three walks.

    While Perez held the Phillies scoreless, he was pitching around trouble all night. The lefty allowed baserunners in every inning but limited the offense to singles and walks. It was the 10th time in 13 starts that he allowed one earned run or fewer while pitching at least six innings. His next start will likely be early next week in Kansas City.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Allows one run in no-decision

    Perez allowed a run on eight hits and struck out five over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Tigers on Thursday.

    The lone run Perez gave up came on a Robbie Grossman sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Perez still gave up a few too many hits, but he was able to limit the damage in contrast to the seven runs (six earned) on 12 hits he gave up last Saturday against the White Sox. The southpaw has pitched to a 2.10 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 65:18 K:BB across 81.1 innings in 13 starts. He's projected for a home start versus the Phillies next week.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Gives up 12 hits

    Perez escaped with a no-decision Saturday against the White Sox despite allowing seven runs (six earned) on 12 hits, striking out four while walking two.

    Perez owns a modest 20.0 percent strikeout rate, so the 1.56 ERA he carried into this start was always going to rise once the hits started falling. They fell early and often in this one, with the White Sox scoring twice in the second inning, three times in the fourth and twice more in the fifth. Perez also gave up just his second homer of the season, a two-run shot to Jake Burger. The outing raised his ERA by over half a run to 2.18 on the year and stands in stark contrast to the 0.88 ERA he posted across his last nine starts, serving as a reminder that this is a pitcher with a career 4.55 ERA we're talking about, not one who regularly finds himself in Cy Young contention. He'll try to get back on track next week in Detroit.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Perez allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Sunday.

    Perez was solid, but the two runs against him were from Eugenio Suarez hits (solo home run, RBI single). The left-hander has now gone at least six innings in nine straight starts -- he continues to provide solid length, and this was the first time he's allowed multiple runs since May 10. Perez owns a sparkling 1.56 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 56:16 K:BB through 69.1 innings in 11 starts overall. He'll likely make his next start in Chicago against the White Sox next weekend.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Excellent again Tuesday

    Perez (4-2) earned the victory, striking out five in seven shutout innings while allowing three hits and no walks in a 3-0 win Tuesday over Tampa Bay.

    Perez retired the last 16 batters he faced en route to his fourth consecutive victory. It was the eighth straight start where the veteran allowed one earned run or fewer and pitched at least six innings. Perhaps one of the best stories in all of baseball so far this season, the lefty is pacing the American League with a 1.42 ERA and 63.1 innings pitched. He's yet to allow a long ball in 2022 after allowing 1.3 homers per nine innings over the previous five seasons.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Continues dominant streak

    Perez didn't factor into the decision during Thursday's 4-1 win over Oakland, allowing one run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts in seven innings.

    For the seventh straight start, Perez limited the opposing offense to one run or less as Oakland was only able to scratch across one run in the fourth inning. Despite the excellent stretch, Perez has only won three starts despite a 1.12 ERA across 48.1 innings as Texas is scoring just 3.7 runs per game during the streak. A 3.65 xFIP indicates Perez's 1.60 season ERA stands to increase some, though he'll look to keep the momentum rolling against Tampa Bay next week.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Twirls shutout

    Perez (3-2) earned the win during Friday's 3-2 victory over Houston, allowing eight hits and one walk with five strikeouts in a complete-game shutout.

    Perez had been pitching well lately but took his game to new heights Friday, keeping a potent Astros offense off the board in spinning just the third shutout by one pitcher of 2022. The 31-year-old tossed a season-high 108 pitches with only 13 of 73 strikes of the swinging variety; however, perhaps the most noteworthy item was manager Chris Woodward's trust after the tying run came to the plate in the ninth inning. Following two poor outings to open the season, Perez has allowed just three earned runs over his last 41.1 innings across six starts and owns a 1.64 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with a 38:12 K:BB in 49.1 innings. He'll go for an encore against Oakland next week.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Earns second straight win

    Perez (2-2) allowed a run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in six innings to earn the win Sunday against the Red Sox.

    Perez recorded his fifth consecutive quality start during Sunday's outing, and he picked up his second straight victory. The 31-year-old allowed seven runs (six earned) in eight innings over his first two starts of the season but has posted a 0.84 ERA in 32.1 innings over his last five outings. He projects to make his next start on the road against Houston on Friday.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Excellent again in win

    Perez (1-2) earned the win and struck out six in 6.1 innings while allowing four runs (one earned) on five hits in a 6-4 victory Tuesday over Kansas City.

    Perez faced the minimum through the first four innings, erasing the lone single allowed on a double-play ball. In the fifth, two hits led to an earned run. The lefty likely could have completed the seventh inning unscathed but consecutive errors by Charlie Culberson to begin the frame led to three unearned runs. Over his last four starts, he has a remarkable 0.68 ERA and 0.68 WHIP in 26.1 innings. His next start will likely be early next week against the Angels.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Another strong outing

    Perez tossed seven scoreless inning and allowed four hits during Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Phillies, but he didn't factor into the decision. He struck out four and walked four.

    Perez scattered eight baserunners across seven innings thanks to three double plays from the Rangers infield. After allowing six earned runs over his first two outings, the veteran lefty has surrendered just one run over his last 20 innings. During that stretch, Perez has given up just eight hits and sports a 13:5 K:BB. Despite the strong run the veteran lefty is still looking for his first win of the year.

  • Rangers' Martin Perez: Phenomenal in no-decision

    Perez allowed one run on two hits in seven innings, striking out four in a 3-2 loss Thursday against Houston. He did not factor into the decision.

    After being perfect through six innings, Perez allowed a leadoff double and a two-out RBI single in the seventh. The lefty was incredibly efficient, needing only 77 pitches to complete seven full frames. The last two games have been masterfully pitched by the 31-year-old, allowing just one run on four hits in 13 innings. However, he's compiled an ERA below four just once in his MLB career, during his first stint in Texas when he posted a 3.62 ERA in 2013.
