Athletics' Carlos Perez: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.

Perez made a strong case for the backup catcher job during spring training this year, but Aramis Garcia was informed Saturday that he'll make the Opening Day roster after Perez was sent to the minors. Perez hit .304 with a double, three runs and two RBI in 14 Cactus League games this spring and will begin the season at Triple-A Las Vegas.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Distinguishes himself in job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez remains a strong candidate to win the backup catcher job heading into the final days of spring training, Martin Gallegos of reports.

Perez is in one of the more heated job battles of Athletics camp with Aramis Garcia, who's also impressed in his bid to serve as Sean Murphy's primary backup behind the dish to open the season. Perez is more of a known quantity to the organization than offseason arrival Garcia, with the former having spent the 2020 campaign distinguishing himself at Oakland's alternate training site with his ability to handle the younger pitchers on the roster. The 30-year-old hasn't seen regular-season action since 2018, but he's hitting a solid .273 (6-for-22) with an RBI across 13 spring games.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Starting against Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (not injury related) is batting sixth and playing catcher in Saturday's spring game against Seattle, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Perez's arrival at camp was delayed by visa issues, but he'll make his spring debut behind the dish Saturday. He should be in line for a solid allotment of reps during spring training going forward.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Arrival delayed by visa issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has not yet arrived at spring training due to a visa issue, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The veteran catcher inked a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Jan. 29 but will apparently have to wait a bit longer before getting a chance to jump into workouts. With fellow backstop Sean Murphy still on the mend from lung surgery and not likely to start baseball activity "for a while" according to manager Bob Melvin, Perez could be in line for a solid allotment of reps alongside Aramis Garcia in early workouts and Cactus League games.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Back in Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 30-year-old has spent parts of four seasons in the big leagues, though he hasn't done much with his opportunities and hasn't received any since 2018. in 670 career plate appearances at the highest level, he owns a .215/.257/.319 slash line. He was a member of Oakland's player pool last season but never made it onto the big-league roster.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Makes it on player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is part of the Athletics' 60-man player pool that will report to summer camp, Martin Gallegos of reports.

The veteran backstop will be one of five catchers in camp, but he's clearly no better than No. 4 on the positional depth chart behind Sean Murphy, Jonah Heim and Austin Allen. That trio is expected to make the 30-man Opening Day roster, which means Perez, who's on a minor-league contract, appears destined for the additional pool of up to 30 players that won't have active status but will continue to train in a separate location during the season.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Agrees to MiLB contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez signed a minor-league contract with Oakland on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training.

Perez will open spring with the big-league club, though he spent the majority of the 2019 campaign at Double-A Bowie, where he slashed .251/.302/.434 with 14 homers and 60 RBI in 94 games.

Orioles' Carlos Perez: Heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Carlos Perez: Latches on with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Likely headed for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Rejoins Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Reinstated and outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Rehab stint on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (ankle) will begin a rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Frisco on Thursday, T.R. Sullivan of 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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Hits disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Wearing walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Leaves with right ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rockies with a right ankle sprain, T.R. Sullivan of 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.

Rangers' Carlos Perez: Makes debut for Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

May 3, 2018 07:36 PM
Rangers' Carlos Perez: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
