Perez was traded from the Astros to the Reds on Saturday in exchange for catcher Luke Berryhill.
Perez spent just under a month in the majors during the 2020 season and made seven relief appearances for Houston. He allowed two runs on seven hits and six walks while striking out eight over 6.1 innings. He'll now compete for a big-league roster spot with the Reds ahead of the 2021 campaign.
Perez was optioned to the Astros' alternate training site Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Perez made three relief appearances during his most recent stint in the majors, allowing one run while striking out two over two innings. He'll return to the alternate training site to make room on the active roster for Lance McCullers (neck), who will start Wednesday against the Rangers.
Perez was recalled from the Astros' taxi squad Sunday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
With Lance McCullers (neck) landing on the IL, Perez was summoned back to the big-league club a day after he was sent packing. The lefty has made four appearances out of the Astros' bullpen this season, allowing one run on five hits and four walks while striking out six over 4.1 innings.
Perez was optioned to the Astros' alternate training site Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Perez allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out two over 1.1 innings Friday, and he'll return to alternate camp following the outing. The southpaw pitched effectively with the Astros during his time with the club and could return to the major-league bullpen at some point in 2020.
The Astros recalled Perez from their alternate training site Thursday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
He'll join the active roster as a replacement for third baseman Alex Bregman (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. Perez missed a large chunk of summer camp while recovering from an unspecified issue, but he was cleared to report to the Astros' alternate site in late July and should be in good condition as he makes the jump to the big leagues. Perez will likely serve as a multi-inning option out of the Houston bullpen, given his recent starting experience in the high levels of the minors.
Perez (undisclosed) was cleared to participate in baseball activities Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
The young southpaw was placed on the injured list with an unspecified reason July 13, but he'll now head to the Astros' alternate training site to resume workouts. Perez could be a long relief option at some point this season for Houston, but it's unclear when he'll be game ready.
Perez was placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Perez has spent the beginning of camp on the 60-man roster, but he'll now be sidelined for at least 10 days for an undisclosed reason. It's unlikely that he'll be ready for Opening Day. The southpaw allowed 10 runs with a 7:2 K:BB over nine innings with the Astros in 2019.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
