Perez (3-5) took the loss Thursday, coughing up six runs on nine hits and a walk over four innings in a 13-1 loss to the Orioles. He struck out two.
Five of the nine hits off Perez went for extra bases, including a Jose Iglesias solo shot in the fourth inning. The southpaw heads into free agency this winter with a 4.50 ERA and 46:28 K:BB through 62 innings on the year.
Perez pitched six shutout innings, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out seven in a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.
Perez was masterfully painting the corners of the plate Friday evening as all seven of his punchouts were looking. The left-hander was able to keep his walks down too as it was just the third time this season he's given fewer than two free passes during a start. Unfortunately, the Red Sox bullpen was unable to hang onto the lead, robbing Perez of his fourth win in 2020. The 29-year-old will take a 3.88 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into his next start scheduled for Wednesday against the Orioles.
Perez (3-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings as he earned the win Sunday against the Rays.
Perez has been wildly inconsistent recently, but he earned his first win in over a month as he got some help from the Rays' offense. He also matched his highest strikeout total of the season against the top team in the American League East. The southpaw will attempt to build on his momentum at home Saturday against the Yankees.
Perez didn't factor into the decision during a 6-5 loss to the Phillies in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader, giving up four runs on five hits and six walks over five innings. He struck out two.
The southpaw's command almost completely deserted him in this one, as Perez also uncorked a wild pitch and threw only 47 of his 86 pitches for strikes before exiting. Boston was able to take the lead in the top of the sixth inning, getting him off the hook for the loss, but Matt Barnes then blew the save. Perez hasn't won a game in over a month, and he'll carry a 4.40 ERA and 31:24 K:BB through 47 innings into his next outing Sunday in Tampa Bay.
Perez allowed one run on three hits and three walks over 6.2 innings against Toronto on Thursday. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.
Perez entered the seventh inning with a no-hitter intact on 77 pitches, but Teoscar Hernandez ended the bid with a leadoff single. Perez went on to allow two more singles in the frame, departing after Joe Panik notched a run-scoring single to cut Boston's lead to one run. The Boston bullpen was unable to hold the lead, ultimately resulting in a 10-inning win for Toronto. Despite the no-decision, Perez looked good after having his start pushed back after developing a blister on his pitching hand in his previous outing. The southpaw now owns a 4.07 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season, both best among Boston's beleaguered starting rotation. He'll next face the Phillies on the road Tuesday.
Perez's scheduled start is expected to be bumped back to Thursday against the Blue Jays while he contends with a blister, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The Red Sox have gone back and forth on whether or not Perez will see his next start delayed after he pitched through a blister on his left index finger Friday against the Nationals. The latest reports indicate that the southpaw will throw Thursday, though the starter for Wednesday's game against the Braves has not yet been announced.
Perez (finger) is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Braves, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Manager Ron Roenicke hinted Sunday that Perez could be pushed back a day in the pitching schedule after developing a blister on his pitching hand during his last start, but the veteran southpaw looks like he'll remain on his normal four days' rest after all. Perez has been unremarkable this season with a 4.58 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and a 6.1 K-BB% over seven outings, but those numbers are good enough to make him the clear No. 2 starter in a beleaguered Boston rotation.
Perez's (finger) next scheduled start might be pushed back at least a day, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Perez pitched through a blister on his left index finger during Friday's start. His next turn through the rotation is scheduled for Wednesday at home against Atlanta, but manager Ron Roenicke said Sunday that Perez could be pushed back a day as he continues to recover. If he's unable to take the mound Wednesday, Darwinzon Hernandez or Ryan Weber could be candidates to start in his place.
Perez (2-4) allowed six runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out one over four innings as he was charged with the loss Friday against the Nationals.
Perez dealt with a blister on his left index finger during his start, but he was able to pitch through it, and he expects to be ready for his next start. The southpaw regressed after allowing just one run in his last outing, but the injury could help provide an explanation for his struggles. Perez now carries a 4.58 ERA over 35.1 innings this season. Assuming he's able to make his next start, Perez should take the mound at home Wednesday against Atlanta.
Perez will make his next start Friday at home against the Nationals, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Perez, who started Saturday, lines up to pitch Thursday on a five-day schedule, but manager Ron Roenicke opted to give the left-hander an extra day. "We just think that's a better way to do it," Roenicke said. "Trying to keep him and [Nathan Eovaldi] separated also helps; since we've done that it seems to help our bullpen some, so we'll try to continue to do that." Perez tossed a season-high seven innings on 94 pitches Saturday, but the decision to split him and Eovaldi appears to play a larger role in the decision to give him an extra day.
Perez allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out six across seven innings Saturday against Baltimore. He did not factor into the decision.
Perez exited the game with a 3-1 lead but was betrayed by his bullpen. He allowed only a solo home run to Pat Valaika and turned in his first start without surrendering multiple free passes. Perez has a strong 3.45 ERA across 31.1 innings, but he hasn't been able to consistently work deep into games due to his inability to find the strike zone -- exhibited by his 4.3 BB/9. He's currently projected to take his next turn through the rotation Thursday at Toronto.
Perez (2-3) took the loss after allowing three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out one over three innings Monday against the Yankees.
Perez struggled with his command in this one, surrendering more walks than hits. He gave up all three runs in the second frame, one on an RBI double, and the other two on a two-run homer by Luke Voit. After five starts this season, Perez sits with a 4.07 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with a 17:14 K:BB over 24.1 frames.
Perez will start Monday's game against the Yankees, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Perez was originally scheduled to start Sunday but he will be given an additional day of rest after taking the loss in Tuesday's outing against Tampa Bay. The lefty is 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA on the campaign. The Red Sox have not announced a starter for Sunday's tilt.
Perez (2-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.2 innings as the Red Sox were defeated 8-2 by the Rays. He struck out five.
The lefty didn't pitch badly -- Tampa did most of its damage against the Boston bullpen -- but after striking out the first two batters in the sixth inning, Perez got the hook following a four-pitch walk to Jose Martinez, leaving him one out short of his first quality start of the year. Perez has given a beleaguered Boston rotation some stability, lasting at least five innings in all four of his starts with a 3.38 ERA, but his 16:11 K:BB over 21.1 frames highlights the tightrope he tends to walk. He'll look for that elusive 18th out in his next outing Sunday, on the road against the Yankees.
Perez (2-1) allowed four hits and three walks while striking out four across five scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Rays.
Perez allowed a double to the first batter he faced, but managed work out of the early jam with a pop up, ground out, and strike out. He faced a similar scenario in the fourth inning, but remained unscathed. Perez has given himself a thin margin for error through three starts this season, striking out 11 and walking nine across 15.2 innings. Still, he'll carry a 3.45 ERA into his next start, currently projected for Tuesday in a rematch against the Rays.
Perez used his changeup more often in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Mets, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Aside from a minor blip in the third inning, Perez mastered the Mets, facing four or fewer batters in the four of the five innings he completed. "Great job from Martin to get us that far," said manager Ron Roenicke. "Really commanded his pitches from the first inning on. That's huge for us, to have him do that." After relying on his cutter during his first start, when the Orioles jumped on Perez for five runs in the first two innings, the left-hander threw 31 changeups (35.2 percent of his pitches) in Thursday's win, generating nine swings-and-misses on the pitch. "I had a good feeling today," Perez said. "As soon as I started throwing it and seeing those guys weren't making adjustments, I just said this is the pitch I have to stay on. I just trusted it."
Perez (1-1) allowed two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Mets.
Perez pitched a fairly clean game with the exception of the third inning, when he walked two batters and hit another. That loaded the bases for Jeff McNeil, who singled into left field to drive in a pair. It was a bounce-back performance from Perez, as he had surrendered four earned runs in his first start with Boston. He'll face a tough test in his next scheduled start, which is currently projected for Wednesday at Tampa Bay.
Perez (0-1) took the loss Saturday against Baltimore after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks across five innings. He recorded two strikeouts.
The southpaw struggled right out of the gate Saturday and allowed all five runs during the first two frames before finding a rhythm, but the damage was already done. Perez will look for a rebound performance when he faces the Mets on Thursday.
Perez allowed three hits and no walks while striking out six over six shutout innings in Monday's intrasquad game, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. He threw 80 pitches (52 strikes).
Perez said he found his cutter, which he had problems with in earlier intrasquad games, and that was the difference Monday. The left-hander authored his best outing of camp in his final tuneup and will next start the second game of the season, Saturday at home against Baltimore.
Perez allowed five runs over five innings during Wednesday's intrasquad game, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Perez had first-inning difficulty before settling in over the final four frames. The left-hander is expected to start the second game of the season, July 25, at home against Baltimore.
