Cubs' Hernan Perez: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Cubs on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Perez elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A by the Brewers in mid-October, and he'll remain in the National League Central for the start of spring training. The 28-year-old struggled in 2019 with a .228/.262/.379 slash line in 91 games, but his versatility remains a valuable commodity. Perez has played every position besides catcher in his career, so he could prove to be quality depth piece.

Hernan Perez: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio on Wednesday and elected free agency.

The 28-year-old struggled in 2019, hitting just .228/.262/.379 with 18 RBI and five stolen bases in 91 appearances. Perez saw diminished playing time, especially after Keston Hiura was promoted to the majors. Perez will now test free agency after declining returns over the past few seasons with the Brewers.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Provides homer in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies in 13 innings.

Perez came off the bench to replace starting third baseman Mike Moustakas, who was one of several regulars pulled from the contest after it became apparent that the Cardinals would defeat the Cubs and clinch the NL Central crown. Though he was one of the few Brewers batters to provide an impact in the extra-inning loss, Perez isn't a lock to be included on the team's roster for their wild-card matchup Tuesday versus the Nationals. He concluded the 2019 regular season with a .228/.262/.379 slash line over 246 plate appearances.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Cubs.

Perez took Jose Quintana deep with a two-run homer to give the Brewers a 2-1 lead in the second inning. The long ball was the sixth of the season for the utility man, who has struggled to land a consistent spot in the lineup. Perez is batting .241/.277/.382 across 191 at-bats.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Perez cracked the lineup at shortstop in three of the past four contests, with all of his starts coming against southpaws. He'll be back on the bench with a right-hander (Kyle Gibson) on the hill for Minnesota and looks like he'll be limited to the short side of a platoon with Orlando Arcia.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez's contract was selected from Triple-A San Antonio prior to Friday's game against the Rangers.

He was designated for assignment earlier this year but went unclaimed and is now back on the 40-man roster. Perez will serve as a backup infielder. Travis Shaw was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Remains in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio on Wednesday.

Perez is a capable enough utility man, but his .235/.277/.383 line in 59 games this season wasn't enough to entice a team to claim him off waivers. He could return to the big leagues at some point in the second half if injuries open up a bench spot.

June 27, 2019 08:32 PM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has been designated for assignment, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Perez is in the midst of another down season, as he was hitting just .235/.277/.383 across 160 plate appearances. However, he was a versatile option, manning most every defensive position around the diamond besides catcher and center field. There has been no official word on what the Brewers will do with his roster spot.

June 25, 2019 05:12 PM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Starting again against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

Perez has started at second base every time the Brewers have faced a left-hander since Keston Hiura was sent down early in the month, and the pattern will hold as Perez mans they keystone Tuesday with lefty Marco Gonzales on the bump for Seattle. Perez will hit seventh in the Brewers' batting order.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Manning cleanup spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start at second base and bat cleanup Thursday against the Marlins.

Entering the lineup for just the second time in seven games, Perez will assume his highest spot in the batting order this season. While slotting in behind Lorenzo Cain, Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun could make Perez a decent DFS option, his season-long upside remains capped. At this time, Perez only looks to be a short-side platoon player for Milwaukee.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Confined to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Perez drew three consecutive starts at second base in Chicago last weekend, but he's been on the bench throughout the four-game series in Philadelphia. Even with the Brewers recently moving fellow infielder Travis Shaw (wrist) to the injured list, Perez will remain in a utility role after the Brewers called up top prospect Keston Hiura from Triple-A San Antonio to assume the everyday job at the keystone.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Starting third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday against the Cubs.

The Brewers' decision to hold Travis Shaw out of the lineup this weekend has benefited Perez, who will pick up a third straight start. After a hitless showing in the opener Friday, Perez accounted for the Brewers' only run by smacking a solo shot in Saturday's 15-inning loss.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Hits solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

The 28-year-old accounted for the only run the Brewers scored in 15 innings. Travis Shaw batted for Perez in the eighth and actually received more at-bats than Perez did in the game. Maybe the homer will get Perez hitting again because he's going through a tough stretch at the moment. He is 5-for-29 (.172) in his last 11 games, including Saturday's. Overall, Perez is batting .229 with four home runs, seven RBI, eight runs and two steals in 70 at-bats.

May 10, 2019 02:48 PM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Will start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start at second base and hit seventh in Friday's game against the Cubs.

Perez started just two times in the last seven games, but he will enter the lineup Friday while Travis Shaw gets the day off and Mike Moustakas covers third base. The Brewers will face a left-hander in each of their next three games and will hold the struggling Shaw out of all three contests to give him a mental break, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, so Perez figures to get at least another start -- if not two -- before the weekend comes to a close.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Seeing boost in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start at second base Wednesday for the sixth time in seven games.

Perez started just five of the Brewers' first 19 games, but he has seen a boost in playing time of late with regular second baseman Mike Moustakas slowed by a finger injury. Perez has taken advantage of the extra at-bats, posting an .811 OPS in 45 plate appearances over 17 games, but he figures to slide back into a super-utility role once Moustakas is ready to resume his regular role, which could occur at some point in the next few days.

Brewers' Hernan Perez: Connects for second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's win over the Dodgers.

The 28-year-old has fanned in nine of his 23 at-bats to start the year, but Perez is making the most of his limited contact right now (.522 SLG). He's 3-for-8 with a pair of homers against left-handed pitching this season and may be in line for more starts at the hot corner with Travis Shaw (hand) really struggling.

April 12, 2019 07:00 PM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Starting at keystone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is starting at second base and will bat seventh Friday night against the Dodgers.

Travis Shaw (hand) is out of the lineup for the series opener, so Mike Moustakas will shift to the hot corner, clearing the way for Perez to make a start at second. He's batting .263 with a homer and two RBI through seven games in 2019.

April 6, 2019 05:16 AM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Swats first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 13-10 win over the Cubs.

Making his second start of the season, Perez took Jose Quintana deep in the third inning for his first homer. The utility player saw a significant dip in playing time in 2018 behind a fairly set Brewers infield, and barring injury ahead of him on the depth chart, Perez seems unlikely to regain those lost at-bats this year.

March 31, 2019 11:48 AM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Draws start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will start at shortstop and bat seventh Sunday against the Cardinals.

Perez will make his first appearance of the season with Orlando Arcia shifting to the bench as a result. He appeared in 132 games in 2018, slashing .253/.290/.386 across 316 at-bats.

March 18, 2019 11:56 AM
Brewers' Hernan Perez: Snaps out of spring slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 2-for-3 with two runs in Sunday's spring game against the Dodgers.

Perez tallied three home runs and nine RBI over his first five games this spring, but he really struggled in between that stretch and Sunday's contest, tallying just three hits and one RBI over eight games. Perez's versatility all but guarantees him a spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster, and he will likely open in the super-utility role he has held down for a while.
