Perez was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Perez had been in camp as a non-roster invitee but was always going to be a long shot to make the roster. With a career .215/.257/.319 line in parts of four big-league seasons, the 28-year-old is unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact even if he winds up with unexpected at-bats.
Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training, though Perez seems more likely to open the season in the minors as catching depth. The backstop spent time with the Braves and Rangers in 2018, appearing in 28 games and slashing .143/.178/.214.
Perez was outrighted from the Rangers' 40-man roster Friday and is expected to elect free agency instead of accepting a minor-league assignment.
Perez spent a majority of the 2018 campaign with Texas after being designated for assignment by Atlanta in late April. In total, he played in 28 games, slashing just .143/.178/.214 with three RBI in 75 plate appearances. The 28-year-old will likely be on the look for a new home this winter.
Perez had his contract purchased from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Perez returned from an ankle injury in mid-July and was outrighted to Round Rock as Isiah Kiner-Falefa took over the job of backup catcher for the Rangers. The 27-year-old is slashing .159/.197/.238 in 68 plate appearances across stints with the Braves and Rangers this season.
Perez (ankle) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and assigned outright to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.
Perez had already been with Round Rock on a rehab assignment but will now be there as a full-time member of the team. He's also been removed from the 40-man roster, which hurts his chances of returning to the big-leagues any time soon and leaves Isiah Kiner-Falefa as the Rangers' backup catcher.
Perez (ankle) had his rehabilitation assignment moved from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Perez, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list June 16 with a right ankle sprain, went 4-for-16 at Frisco since beginning a rehab assignment June 28. The Rangers can keep him on rehab another 13 days.
Perez (ankle) will begin a rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Frisco on Thursday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
It's uncertain if the Rangers intend to bring Perez back to the major-league roster when healthy. Since he was placed on the disabled list, manager Jeff Banister moved utility infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa into the backup catcher job.
Perez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain Saturday.
Perez suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Rockies. Jose Trevino will be the Rangers' backup catcher in Perez's absence.
Perez (ankle) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.
Perez left Friday's game with a right ankle sprain and was spotted following the game with a walking boot and crutches, though he hasn't yet been placed on the disabled list. Jose Trevino will get the start behind the plate Saturday.
Perez sprained his right ankle during Friday's loss to the Rockies and left the ballpark following the game wearing a walking boot and with crutches, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
That's not a good sign for the Rangers, who are dealing with a slew of injuries right now. If Perez lands on the disabled list, Jose Trevino, who filled in after Perez left Friday's game, will get more opportunities as the primary backup to Robinson Chirinos.
Perez was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rockies with a right ankle sprain, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Perez will be reevaluated Saturday, but the Rangers can't afford to be without a second catcher for long. X-rays were negative, but unless he heals significantly overnight, Perez is likely headed for the disabled list just so the Rangers can ensure they have a second catcher on hand for the next few days.
Perez went 0-for-3 in Sunday's 6-1 loss to Boston.
Perez was claimed off waivers late last week and made his Rangers' debut against Chris Sale, one of the toughest left-handers in the game. There's little in Perez's offensive track record to excite fantasy owners, so even against pitchers not in the same class as Sale, we're not expecting much production.
Perez was added to the Rangers' official roster Thursday.
Texas designated Juan Centeno for assignment to clear a roster spot for the recently acquired Perez. It should be noted that Perez's calling card is his defensive prowess rather than his bat; Perez was just 3-for-21 at the dish before being DFA'd by the Braves last week. He'll immediately be available and should slide into a role as Robinson Chirinos' backup.
Perez was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Wednesday.
Perez was designated for assignment by the Braves on Friday. The 27-year-old appeared in eight games for the club this season, going 3-for-21 with zero extra-base hits and six strikeouts. In a corresponding move, Elvis Andrus (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL in order to make room on the 40-man roster. A subsequent move will be made prior to Thursday's game as the Rangers will need to remove someone from the active 25-man roster.
Perez was designated for assignment by the Braves on Friday.
With Tyler Flowers returning from the disabled list, the Braves no longer needed Perez's catching services in the big leagues. The 27-year-old played sparingly due in part to a hot start from veteran Kurt Suzuki, but also due to a lowly 3-for-21 (.143) batting line in his limited opportunities. He'll now be exposed to waivers with a demotion to the minors likely to come wherever he may wind up.
Perez was added to the Braves' active roster Monday.
Josh Ravin (illness) was sent to the disabled list to clear room on the Braves' roster for the addition of Perez, who was acquired from the Angels over the weekend. With Tyler Flowers (oblique) expected to miss extended time and Kurt Suzuki nursing a hand injury, Perez will immediately step in and share catching duties with Chris Stewart, though it's unclear if Perez will remain with the big club following the return of Suzuki.
Perez will join the Braves in advance of Monday's series opener against the Nationals, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
With Tyler Flowers (oblique) expected to be sidelined for a month and Kurt Suzuki (hand) possibly headed for the DL as well, Perez has an opportunity to earn immediate playing time. He and Chris Stewart would likely split reps behind the plate once an official roster move is announced.
Perez was traded to the Braves by the Angels on Saturday for infielder Ryan Schimpf, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports. Atlanta is expected to clear roster space to add Perez to the 25-man roster Monday, Grant McAuley of 929 The Game reports.
Tyler Flowers (oblique) is expected to need a lengthy stay on the disabled list, and Kurt Suzuki (hand) was hit by a pitch on his hand Friday, so the Braves needed depth behind the plate. Perez, who was designated for assignment by the Angels earlier in the week, could step into immediate playing time, at least in a part-time role, depending on Suzuki's availability, which may give him some NL-only fantasy interest. Atlanta still has Chris Stewart in tow, though, and most fantasy players in deep mixed leagues should wait for strong evidence from Perez's plate work that he deserves a pickup, though two-catcher competitors have more of a reason to consider him.
Perez was designated for assignment on Tuesday.
Perez lost out to Rene Rivera as the backup catcher. He could get claimed by another team looking for a backup catcher.
Perez appears unlikely to open the 2018 campaign with the Angels after the team signed fellow catcher Rene Rivera to a one-year, $2.8 million contract Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
It would seem the Angels are placing a premium on defense behind the plate heading into 2018, as Rivera, who has thrown out 36 percent of attempted base stealers throughout his career, will slot in on the depth chart behind Martin Maldonado, the reigning American League Gold Glove winner at the position. Since the Angels are unlikely to enter Opening Day with three catchers, Perez, who is out of minor-league options, is at risk of losing his 40-man roster spot through trade or being designated for assignment. Though the 27-year-old might have more perceived upside than Rivera, his inferior defense at this stage of his career along with his meager .224/.267/.332 battling line across three seasons in the majors doesn't warrant much of a commitment on the Angels' part.
