  • Mets' Michael Perez: Back with big club

    Perez was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Perez was dealt from the Pirates to the Mets at the end of July, but this will be his first opportunity to debut with his new club. He slashed .150/.209/.318 with six homers, 11 RBI and one stolen base through 39 games with Pittsburgh prior to the trade. Perez figures to serve as the backup catcher after Tomas Nido was placed on the COVID-19 injured list earlier in the day.

  • Mets' Michael Perez: Traded to Mets

    Perez was traded from the Pirates to the Mets on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Perez was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Friday, but he'll quickly find a new organization. He'll join the Mets' active roster as additional depth behind the plate since James McCann (oblique) and Tomas Nido (hand) are banged up.

    Perez had alternated starts behind the dish in recent matchups but will head to the minors after Tyler Heineman was reinstated from the family medical emergency list Friday. Perez should see more consistent playing time in the minors after he slashed .193/.227/.325 with two homers, seven RBI, four runs and a stolen base over 26 major-league games.

  • Pirates' Michael Perez: Career game in win

    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.

  • Pirates' Michael Perez: Resting Tuesday

    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.

  • Pirates' Michael Perez: Pops third homer

    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.
