Red Sox's Martin Perez: Much improved Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed four hits and one walk while striking out seven in Sunday's spring start against the Twins.

Perez, who was unable to get out of the first inning during his spring debut last Tuesday, was much improved Sunday. The left-hander told Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com that he followed the advice of Red Sox pitching instructors, who told Perez to focus on location, not velocity. Perez had initially been penciled in as Boston's No. 5 starter but has since moved up in the wake of the David Price trade and Chris Sale's elbow setback.

Red Sox's Martin Perez: Done early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed six runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning in Tuesday's spring game against the Yankees.

Perez was done after 34 pitches but got his pitch count up by throwing another 20 in the bullpen. He chalked up the outing to bad luck, noting a lot of soft contact, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. He's penciled in as Boston's No. 3 starter and becomes a more important piece after it was learned Chris Sale is out indefinitely after undergoing an MRI on his elbow.

Red Sox's Martin Perez: Solid spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed one unearned run over two innings in his Grapefruit League debut against the Pirates on Wednesday, striking out three batters in the process. He was hitting 94-95 mph in the outing, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Interim manager Ron Roenicke said afterward that they want to work with Perez's pitch mix this spring to help him recapture the form he showed over the first two months of last season, perhaps getting him to use his changeup more often and his cutter less frequently. "His changeup is outstanding," Roenicke said. "It's a strikeout changeup."

Red Sox's Martin Perez: Latches on with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Red Sox on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Perez spent the 2019 campaign with Minnesota, starting 29 games on the way to a 5.12 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with a 135:67 K:BB over 165.1 innings. He figures to slot in near the back end of Boston's rotation, likely behind Eduardo Rodriguez.

Martin Perez: Optioned declined by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez's option was declined by the Twins on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Perez generated a bit of buzz prior to the season due to reports of increased velocity. While he did indeed increase his fastball velocity from 92.7 mph to 94.1 mph, that didn't come with a particularly impressive level of performance, as he finished the year with a 5.12 ERA in 165.1 innings. The Twins evidently didn't feel as though that was worth one year and $7.5 million, so the 28-year-old lefty will be searching for a new home this winter.

Twins' Martin Perez: Yields three runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez did not factor in the decision against Kansas City on Sunday, pitching 5.2 innings and allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five.

Perez was hardly dominant yet fell one out shy of picking up a quality start while hurling over 100 pitches for the first time since Aug. 25. The southpaw's season was a tale of two halves as he posted an 8-3 record along with a 4.26 ERA before the All-Star break but went 2-4 with a 6.40 ERA after the intermission. He finishes the regular season with a 5.12 earned run average, 1.52 WHIP and 135:67 K:BB over 165.1 innings.

Twins' Martin Perez: To pitch in regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start Sunday's game against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Perez will take the ball for his team's final regular-season contest. He allowed five runs over 2.1 innings in a no-decision against Kansas City in his last outing on Sept. 22.

Twins' Martin Perez: Pitches poorly in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed five runs on eight hits with no walks and one strikeout across 2.1 innings during a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday.

The 28-year-old is limping to the finish line, as he's pitched poorly in his last three starts and four of the last five. Since Aug. 31, he owns a 9.14 ERA and has struck out just 14 with seven walks in 20.2 innings. Overall, he is 10-7 but with a 5.13 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 130 strikeouts in 159.2 innings this season. He will pitch his final regular-season game at these Royals on Saturday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Peppered in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 9-8 extra-innings win over the White Sox, giving up three runs on 10 hits over 4.2 innings while striking out four.

The lefty got the hook after throwing 64 pitches (45 strikes), but Perez actually did a reasonable job of avoiding hard contact -- only one of the 10 hits by Chicago went for extra bases, and none left the yard. He'll carry a 4.92 ERA and 129:64 K:BB through 157.1 innings into his next outing Sunday, at home against the Royals.

Twins' Martin Perez: Handed seventh loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (10-7) took the loss Wednesday against the Nationals after allowing five runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out four and walked three.

Perez was lucky to get through five innings after allowing two runs in the first and three more in the third. The left-hander has a 4.89 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 125:64 K:BB through 152.2 innings and has a matchup with the White Sox on tap for Monday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Moves to 10-6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (10-6) got the win against the Red Sox on Thursday, giving up one earned run on two hits over six innings, striking out one and walking two as the Twins bagged a 2-1 victory.

Perez was blown up for seven earned over 2.2 innings in his last outing against the Tigers, but he bounced back with a quality start in this contest that allowed him to nab his 10th win of the season. It's still been an erratic campaign overall for the 28-year-old, as he's got a 4.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 147.2 innings. He lines up to take on the Nationals in his next start in a Wednesday home matchup.

Twins' Martin Perez: Suffers rough loss against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (9-6) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts across just 2.2 innings while taking the loss against the Tigers on Saturday.

The veteran had an inning to forget during the third. The Tigers sent 11 hitters to the plate against Perez, and the only batter he got out was Gordon Beckham twice. This is the second time in the last five starts that Perez yielded seven earned runs in a start. Fortunately, he rebounded well after his last seven-run outing, but Perez will have to do it again to get his ERA back below 4.50. Perez owns a 4.89 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 120 strikeouts in 141.2 innings this season.

Twins' Martin Perez: Strikes out five in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (9-5) gave up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five through six innings to get the win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Perez has a nice outing in the quality start and recorded a nine-pitch inning to end his day in the sixth inning. Perez continues to produce soft contact, ranking in the 97th percentile of pitchers in lowest exit velocity allowed. The 28-year-old has a 4.53 ERA and 116 strikeouts through 23 starts this season. Perez will make his next start Saturday at the Tigers.

Twins' Martin Perez: Walks four in lackluster start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed two runs on five hits and four walks over five innings Sunday, striking out two batters in the win over Texas. He did not factor into the decision.

The two runs against Perez came on from a two-RBI single by Jeff Mathis in the fourth inning. He left in line for a win before Sam Dyson gave up a game-tying homer in the seventh. Perez lowered his ERA to 4.53 alongside a 111:56 K:BB in 133 innings. He'll get the Tigers at home on Saturday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Brewers, allowing one unearned run on six hits and four walks over six innings while striking out three.

The southpaw didn't give Milwaukee hitters much to hit, tossing only 54 of 88 pitches for strikes, and the result was his ninth quality start of the year. Perez will take a 4.57 ERA and 109:52 K:BB through 128 innings into his next outing Sunday, on the road against the Rangers.

Twins' Martin Perez: Gives up three homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (8-5) allowed seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits with two walks and six strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Braves on Wednesday.

For the third time in his last four outings, Perez allowed three homers. He yielded seven home runs in his first 17 starts this season, and in his last five, Perez has served up 11 long balls. The trouble keeping the ball in the park is the main reason his ERA has increased a whole run over the last two months. Perez owns a 4.80 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 106 strikeouts in 122 innings this season and will look to correct his home run issues in his next start Tuesday at the Brewers.

Twins' Martin Perez: Hit hard in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 11-9 win over the Royals, giving up five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- over five innings while striking out three.

Fortunately for the southpaw, all three Kansas City homers were solo shots, and Perez actually left the game in line for his ninth win before the Royals tied it up in the sixth inning. He'll take a 4.58 ERA and 100:46 K:BB through 116 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against Atlanta.

July 28, 2019 06:32 PM
Twins' Martin Perez: Stuck with loss in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (8-4) struck out four but took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings in a 5-1 loss to the White Sox.

The southpaw delivered his eighth quality start of the year but wasn't rewarded for it when Minnesota's bats went uncharacteristically silent. Perez now sports a 4.38 ERA and 97:46 K:BB through 111 innings, and while his next outing is scheduled for Friday against the Royals, he could be bumped if the Twins bolster their rotation at the trade deadline.

Twins' Martin Perez: Walks four in shaky outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks over four innings Monday, striking out four and taking the no-decision in the win over the Yankees.

Perez coughed up three homers in this one, including a two-run shot to DJ LeMahieu in the fifth inning before walking Aaron Judge all without recording an out in the frame. The southpaw has allowed at least four runs in five of his last seven outings, spiking his ERA from 3.72 to 4.37 in the process. He'll look to get back in the win column on the road against the White Sox on Saturday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts across six innings during a no-decision against the Mets on Wednesday.

Six unearned runs late let this contest get out of hand, but Perez pitched well and kept the Twins in the game, which is good to see. Perez came into the afternoon having allowed at least four runs in four of his last five outings, but he is an impressive 8-3 with a 4.10 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 101 innings this season. Perez will start again Monday at home against the Yankees.
