Astros' Cionel Perez: Back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to minor-league camp on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Perez finished 2019 with the major-league club but will return to Triple-A for the beginning of the 2020 campaign. The 23-year-old allowed 10 earned runs over nine major-league innings and posted a 5.36 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 13 games (10 starts) at Triple-A.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Joining big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (forearm) was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Monday's game against the Brewers, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

After missing nearly a month and a half with a forearm injury, Perez was reinstated from Round Rock's 7-day injured list Thursday. The Astros' decision to bring him back so recently after the health setback illustrates the depleted slate of the big-league bullpen, which currently features four pitchers on the IL. Despite those personnel losses, Perez is expected to see limited usage -- mostly in lower-leverage spots -- throughout September.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Moves rehab to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (forearm) shifted his rehab assignment to High-A Fayetteville earlier this week, tossing two scoreless innings in his appearance Monday.

After three outings with the Astros' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, Perez received the green light to move his rehab to the Carolina League. The lefty breezed through Monday's outing without many complications, ceding a pair of base hits and striking out one in the 25-pitch appearance. He could be cleared to rejoin Triple-A Round Rock before the affiliate begins its Pacific Coast League postseason run.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Begins rehab in GCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (forearm) made his first rehab appearance Tuesday with the Astros' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate. He tossed a scoreless inning in the outing, striking out two and working around a pair of base hits.

Currently on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Round Rock, Perez hadn't pitched since June 28 due to a forearm issue. He'll likely make a few more appearances with the Astros' lower-level affiliates before rejoining the Round Rock roster.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Working back from forearm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez has resumed rehabbing a mild forearm injury at the Astros' spring-training facility in Florida, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The forearm issue has kept Perez on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Round Rock since late June. Though he's seemingly progressing from the injury and could make a rehab start at one of the Astros' lower-level affiliates in the near future, the prolonged shutdown may hurt Perez's chances of resurfacing in Houston when rosters expand in September.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Hits minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triple-A Round Rock placed Perez on its 7-day injured list Sunday with an unspecified issue, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Perez was sent back to the minors earlier this month after giving up 10 runs in eight innings spanning three appearances out of the Houston bullpen. The injury will hurt his chances of resurfacing with the big club before rosters expand in September.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Perez to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The move clears a spot on the active roster for Jose Altuve (hamstring), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's series finale in Cincinnati. Over three appearances out of the Houston bullpen this season, Perez has ceded 10 runs on 11 hits and a walk across eight frames.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Lit up in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez served up seven runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out one in three innings of relief Sunday in the Astros' 12-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

Since notching a win in three perfect frames of relief in his season debut with the Astros back on June 7, Perez has been roughed up in both of his subsequent appearances. Given that he tossed 68 pitches Sunday and likely won't be available for at least a couple more days, Perez could be at risk of a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Called up by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Perez owns a poor 6.44 ERA in 36.1 innings for Round Rock this season. He'll fill the bullpen role previously occupied by Brady Rodgers, who was optioned in a corresponding move.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Perez to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Perez was given the chance to compete for the No. 5 spot in the rotation this spring, but it was little more than a token opportunity with Brad Peacock and Framber Valdez always considered the leading options for that final starting gig once Josh James missed time with a quadriceps injury. The 22-year-old ended up making just two appearances in the Grapefruit League, though that may have been a deliberate effort on the Astros' part to limit his workload. Expect Perez to open the campaign as a member of the Triple-A Round Rock rotation.

Astros' Cionel Perez: No room for error
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez made his spring debut Wednesday, throwing a scoreless inning against the Mets, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Perez reported to camp behind in his throwing and was the last healthy pitcher to play in a game. With two weeks left, manager AJ Hinch will schedule him every two or three days from here on out, giving him little room for any setbacks. "He has no more room for error," Hinch said. "We only have under two weeks left. He'll pitch in a couple days again, over the weekend. A couple days after that, he's got to make a quick impression." Perez, Reymin Guduan and Josh James are considered candidates for the final bullpen spot.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Expected to play this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez tossed a live batting practice session Sunday and is expected to get into a Grapefruit League game this week, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Perez, who is a candidate for the final bullpen spot, began his throwing program later than other pitchers and said he's "100 percent ready" to pitch in a game.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez threw live batting practice Thursday for the first time this spring, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Perez was placed on an individualized throwing program, one that scrapped the team's plan to stretch him out as a starter. He could compete for the final spot in the bullpen once he gets into a game, which is expected to happen by the middle of next week.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Gunning for starting gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will be stretched out as a starter during the first few weeks of spring training and is expected to compete for a rotation role in camp, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With only 16.2 career innings above the Double-A level, Perez looks to be one of the unlikelier candidates to secure a starting role on a Houston squad ripe with intriguing arms. The 22-year-old southpaw certainly possesses some upside thanks to a repertoire that includes a mid-90s fastball and two quality breaking pitches, but his easiest path to innings with the big club in 2019 may come as a reliever. The Astros aren't brimming with lefty relief depth and could view Perez as a more appealing option than Reymin Guduan or Framber Valdez.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday.

Perez has been in the majors for a couple stints this season and will join the Astros again with September's expanded roster. The 22-year-old has allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings for Houston while posting a 2.08 ERA and 1.18 WHIP between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

August 21, 2018 04:00 PM
Astros' Cionel Perez: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Astros wanted to bring in a fresh arm for Tuesday's bullpen game, so Perez will swap places with fellow left-hander Framber Valdez. Perez owns a 3.86 ERA and 7:5 K:BB through seven major-league innings this season. He should be back up in early September.

August 3, 2018 04:08 PM
Astros' Cionel Perez: Recalled by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was called up from Triple-A Resno on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Perez will rejoin the major-league bullpen after Chris Devenski (hamstring) was placed on the DL in a corresponding move. During four appearances with Houston in July, Perez allowed three earned runs while striking out six in five innings of relief. Look for him to be utilized in low-leverage spots.

July 27, 2018 11:48 PM
Astros' Cionel Perez: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Perez will head back to the minor leagues to make room for Ryan Pressly on the 25-man roster. Perez appeared in three games with the big club, allowing two runs on three hits while fanning five across four innings out of the bullpen.

July 12, 2018 04:28 PM
Astros' Cionel Perez: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled from Double-A Corpus Christi on Wednesday.

Perez will get a chance to make his major-league debut after posting an impressive 1.98 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 83 strikeouts over 68.1 innings for the Hooks. He figures to be used in relief following the demotion of Ken Giles to Triple-A Fresno.

July 1, 2018 02:40 PM
Astros' Cionel Perez: Sent back to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Double-A Corpus Christi on Sunday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

One of the organization's top pitching prospects, Perez was recalled from Double-A on Friday to provide length out of the Houston bullpen on a temporary basis, but he went unused during his two-game stay with the big club. With the Astros bringing Yulieski Gurriel back from the paternity list Sunday, it was an easy decision to send Perez back to Double-A to create room on the 25-man roster. Perez should resume working in a starting role at Corpus Christi, where he has compiled a 2.20 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 71 strikeouts across 57.1 innings this season.
