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.

Twins' Martin Perez: Fades late in eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (8-3) picked up the win in Friday's 15-6 rout of the Rangers, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over six-plus innings while striking out three.

It looked like the left-hander might be putting together something special against his former club, as Perez shut out Texas through six innings with a manageable pitch count, but he ran into a wall in the seventh. He'll take a 4.26 ERA and 85:40 K:BB through 95 innings into the All-Star break.

Twins' Martin Perez: Seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six across seven innings Thursday against the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

Perez turned in his longest start since May 6 but didn't get enough run support to be rewarded with the win. His only trouble came in the second inning when he allowed a leadoff walk to score on a two-out double. It was a solid bounce-back effort for Perez, as he entered Thursday's contest having allowing 12 earned runs across his last 16.2 innings. He'll look to regain his early-season form in his next start, currently scheduled for Wednesday at Oakland.

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

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 8-7 win over the Royals, giving up six runs (four earned) on five hits and three walks over five innings while striking out two.

A late rally by Minnesota took the southpaw off the hook for his fourth loss of the year, but this was still the fifth straight start in which Perez was tagged for at least four runs, a stretch during which he has a 7.50 ERA and 20:11 K:BB over 24 innings. He'll try to turn things around in his next outing Thursday, at home against the Rays.

Twins' Martin Perez: Yields five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (7-3) coughed up five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk in 6.2 innings Sunday, striking out seven and taking the loss against the Royals.

Perez was in trouble early, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk in the second inning alone. He settled in, throwing four straight perfect frames after that before another bumpy stretch in the seventh. He's now given up at least four runs in three of his last four outings, raising his season ERA from 2.95 to 4.09 during that span. He'll look for redemption in Kansas City on Friday.

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

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Mariners, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks over five innings while striking out seven.

The southpaw failed to record an out in the sixth inning for the fourth straight start and was headed for his third loss of the year before a late rally by the Twins bailed him out. Perez will take a 3.97 ERA and 67:33 K:BB through 70.1 frames into his next outing Sunday, at home against the Royals.

Twins' Martin Perez: Undone by defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 9-7 loss to Cleveland, giving up five runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks over 4.2 innings while striking out one.

A throwing error by Miguel Sano and a passed ball by Jason Castro helped soften the blow to his ERA, but Perez didn't have his best stuff in this one, throwing 56 of 92 pitches for strikes while generating only four swinging strikes. The left-hander hasn't lasted more than five innings in any of his last three starts, and with an off day coming Monday, the Twins may elect to skip Perez entirely rather than giving the rest of the rotation an extra day of rest.

Twins' Martin Perez: Shelled for six runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (7-2) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks across 2.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Rays. He struck out three.

Perez crumbled in the third inning in this one, allowing six runs on five hits and two walks before his removal with two outs. This ends a strong run of starts in which the lefty had allowed two earned runs or fewer while going at least five innings in five of the last six. Perez still owns a respectable 3.71 ERA and will hope to bounce back next week against Cleveland.

Twins' Martin Perez: Next start coming Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is scheduled to make his next start Thursday against the Rays, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Perez had been in line to start Tuesday's home game against the Brewers, but manager Rocco Baldelli instead elected to push all four healthy members of the rotation back in the schedule. With the Twins calling up Devin Smeltzer from Triple-A Rochester to take the hill Tuesday, Perez will return to the hill on six days' rest, as he'll benefit from an open date in the schedule Wednesday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez won't make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Brewers.

With rotation mate Michael Pineda (knee) landing on the 10-day injured list, the Twins called up lefty Devin Smeltzer from Triple-A Rochester to fill the opening on the active roster. Though Perez is available to pitch on his normal four days' rest Tuesday, the Twins will instead hand the start to Smeltzer, perhaps suggesting that Perez may be dealing with a health issue, too. More clarity regarding Perez's health and role this week should come when manager Rocco Baldelli meets with the media in the hours leading up to the 8:10 p.m. EDT opening pitch.

Twins' Martin Perez: Earns seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (7-1) pitched five innings and got the win against the Angels on Thursday, allowing two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three.

It was hardly a flawless start for Perez -- for the second straight outing, he walked four batters -- but he was able to hold the Angels to only two runs and earn an easy victory backed by Minnesota's 16-run outburst. Though his 7-1 record and 2.95 ERA this season are impressive, one has to wonder if they are sustainable based on his shaky 1.33 WHIP and 4.0 BB/9. He'll face Milwaukee in his next start Tuesday.

May 23, 2019 01:28 AM
Twins' Martin Perez: Wednesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez won't make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Angels since the game was postponed due to unplayable field conditions, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

The rain had stopped by the time the game was supposed to start, but the field was still deemed unplayable due to the water. The game was rescheduled for Thursday afternoon, so Perez's outing should only be delayed by one day.

Twins' Martin Perez: Overpowers Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (6-1) picked up the win Friday, tossing 6.2 innings of one-run ball. He allowed five hits and four walks and struck out seven in the 7-1 victory.

The gem lowered Perez's ratios to a 2.89 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 53 innings in 10 appearances (seven starts) this season, his first with the Twins. Perez has won five of his last six decisions. The 28-year-old left-hander will take on the Angels in his next scheduled start Wednesday.

Twins' Martin Perez: Cleared to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins list Perez (foot) as their probable starter for Friday's game against the Mariners, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

The news confirms that the bruised left foot Perez sustained in his outing against Detroit last weekend won't disrupt his normal regimen of four days of rest between starts. With a 2.13 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and four wins over his last six turns, Perez has made the case for warranting a roster spot in most shallow formats.

Twins' Martin Perez: Expects to make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez feels fine after taking a line drive off his foot during Sunday's start against Detroit and doesn't expect to miss a start, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Perez was diagnosed with a bruised left foot, but the issue shouldn't force him to miss any time. His next start lines up for Friday in Seattle, so he'll focus on getting healthy over the next few days.

Twins' Martin Perez: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez exited Sunday's start against the Tigers with a left foot bruise after being hit by a line drive, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Perez was hit by a 105 mph line drive to start out the sixth inning and was removed from the game, though he was able to walk off the field under his own power. The left-hander had thrown 93 pitches, so the end of his afternoon was due shortly, regardless. Perez left the game in line for the loss, having given up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings.

Twins' Martin Perez: Back from paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins reinstated Perez from the paternity list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Tigers.

Perez was away from the team for two days for the birth of his child, but didn't miss a turn through the rotation. He'll look to secure a quality start of the fifth time in six turns as he returns to the hill Sunday.

May 10, 2019 11:36 PM
Twins' Martin Perez: Headed to paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will be placed on the paternity list Saturday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Perez will be away from the team for the birth of his child but is still expected to make his scheduled start Sunday. Kohl Stewart, who's starting the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader, will replace Perez on the 25-man roster.

May 7, 2019 12:32 PM
Twins' Martin Perez: Dominant in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (5-0) gave up two hits and two walks while striking out nine through seven scoreless innings Monday, taking a win over the Blue Jays.

Perez was dominant again, getting 15 swinging strikes and 21 called strikes on his way to his fifth victory. The left-hander has delivered three consecutive quality starts and has a 20:4 K:BB over that span. He has a 5-0 record with a 2.83 ERA through five starts this season. Perez will make his next start Saturday in the second game of a doubleheader against the Tigers.
