  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Receiving Friday off

    Perez is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    Perez started the previous five contests and will head to the bench after going 6-for-21 with a double, a stolen base, an RBI and three runs. Ryan Vilade, who was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Friday, will start in right field.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Getting breather

    Perez isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday versus the Reds.

    Perez has slashed .216/.275/.324 with a home run over his last 10 games, and he'll get a chance to rest Saturday as the Tigers face Hunter Greene and the Reds. Mark Canha will shift to right field, allowing Gio Urshela to start at first base while batting seventh.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Slugs pinch-hit homer

    Perez went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 win against Cincinnati.

    Perez pinch hit for Ryan Kreidler in the eighth inning and came through with a two-run blast that knotted the score. The long ball was his second over his past four contests and his fifth across 69 games on the campaign. Perez has never been known as a big power threat, though he did go deep 14 times in 94 contests in the minors in 2022.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reaches four times in rout

    Perez went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 11-2 win over the White Sox.

    While Perez wasn't one of the four Detroit players to go deep, he still had a big performance in the blowout win. The 24-year-old came into play batting just .188 over his last five games, but he's hitting .264 overall in what's been a solid rookie campaign so far. Perez should continue to see regular playing time for the Tigers, at least while Kerry Carpenter (back) is on the injured list, and that gives him some fantasy upside.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Takes seat Monday

    Perez is out of the lineup for Monday's contest in Atlanta.

    After starting each of the previous seven games, Perez will take a seat Monday as Atlanta goes with southpaw Max Fried on the mound. Matt Vierling will replace Perez in right field.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Four hits in blowout win

    Perez went 4-for-6 with two RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 13-5 win over the Astros.

    Perez has been an all-or-nothing player in June, posting four multi-hit efforts and eight hitless games this month. While the lack of consistency is concerning, a four-hit game is a positive spot for the 24-year-old to build from. On the year, he's slashing .260/.320/.401 with three home runs, five steals, 17 RBI and 27 runs scored across 195 plate appearances. Perez also hit atop the order Saturday for the first time in five games, though he is usually somewhere in the top third of the lineup against right-handers.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reaches four times in loss

    Perez went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Nationals.

    Perez was just 2-for-21 over his previous six contests, though he bookmarked either end of the cold stretch with three-hit games. The 24-year-old rookie is understandably going through some ups and downs, but it looks like he'll continue to see regular playing time for the Tigers, at least while Kerry Carpenter (back) is on the injured list.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Batting leadoff Sunday

    Perez is starting in right field and batting first in Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Perez wasn't in the starting lineup Saturday, though he did appear as a pinch hitter, and he'll be back in there Sunday. The 24-year-old rookie is 0-for-12 across his last four games, which has lowered his batting average from .268 to .247. Despite the recent slump, Perez should continue to see semi-regular playing time moving forward, mixing in with Riley Greene, Matt Vierling and Akil Baddoo in Detroit's outfield.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Idle Saturday

    Perez isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday versus Milwaukee.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Tallies three hits

    Perez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored Sunday against the Red Sox.

    Perez matched a season high with three hits, plating a run with his seventh-inning double and later scoring the go-ahead run in the 10th. He had entered the game in a 3-for-28 skid over his last seven starts prior to his outburst Sunday. The 24-year-old rookie outfielder has now accumulated 14 extra-base hits, including six doubles, five triples and three homers while driving in 15 runs, scoring 22 and swiping four bags over 152 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Getting breather for series finale

    Perez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Triples twice, drives in four

    Perez went 2-for-4 with two triples, a run scored and four RBI in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Perez batted third and continued his strong start to the season, as he boosted his batting average to an even .300 and his OPS to .906. The versatile 24-year-old has settled in as the team's primary center fielder due to Parker Meadows being demoted to the minors. Perez should hold onto fantasy value as long as he's seeing regular playing time and swinging a hot bat.
