Nationals' Oliver Perez: Getting hit hard by right-handed batters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has given up nine runs on 18 hits with 22 strikeouts through 18.0 inning this season.

Working mostly as a left-handed specialist, Perez's struggles have come when he's faced opposite handed hitters. Right-handed batters are hitting .321 against him and have only struck out seven times in 30 plate appearances. Meanwhile, lefties are only averaging .214 while striking out 15 out of 47 attempts, almost a third of the time.

Nationals' Oliver Perez: Notches first save since 2013
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez struck out the only hitter he faced Monday against the Dodgers to pick up his first save of 2017.

Perez entered Monday with two career saves through 14-plus MLB seasons (both of which came in 2013 with Seattle). The veteran became the sixth Nationals reliever to record a save this season, but owners shouldn't be racing to the waiver wire. Perez was brought on to face the switch-hitting Yasmani Grandal, who's hit just .171 off southpaws this season.

Nationals' Oliver Perez: Struggling so far this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has given up 13 hits through 9.1 innings pitched.

The Nationals haven't entrusted Perez with much playing time this year, and Perez has given them no reason to change that. Opposing hitters are batting .333 against the former starter and that number increases to .403 on balls put in play, which have both played a role in Perez's sky-high ERA of 5.79.

Nationals' Oliver Perez: Starting slow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has yielded three runs over 2.1 innings to start this season in two appearances.

Despite the small sample size, Perez's FIP has skyrocketed to 6.79 and his WHIP sits at 1.71. The 34-year-old primarily serves as a lefty specialist these days, and he's coming off a 4.95 ERA with 46 strikeouts over 40 innings last season.

Nationals' Oliver Perez: Top lefty specialist in Nats pen heading into 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez heads into 2017 as the top LOOGY in the Nationals' bullpen.

Sammy Solis could see more high-leverage situations, but manager Dusty Baker is more likely to use Solis for a full inning, and turn to Perez when he needs to retire one specific left-handed hitter. The 35-year-old wasn't quite as dominant against same-side hitters last season as he's been in the past, but still allowed just a .227/.337/.384 slash line against them in 2016 with a 25.5 percent strikeout rate.
