Reds' Cionel Perez: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Perez had been in the big leagues since late June. He tossed 4.2 innings over that stretch, allowing one earned run while striking out nine batters. That lowered his season ERA to 6.95 over 22 frames.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Recalled by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

Perez was sent to the minors June 2, and he posted a 0.96 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 12:1 K:BB in 9.1 innings across nine appearances during his most recent stint with the Triple-A club. He's made 18 relief appearances for the Reds this year and has fared considerably worse, posting an 8.31 ERA and 2.02 WHIP across 17.1 innings, but he'll return to the major-league bullpen after right-hander Tejay Antone (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old was initially optioned to Louisville on Monday before being recalled Tuesday, but he's now headed back to the minors. Perez has struggled in 18 appearances this season with an 8.31 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 13:18 K:BB over 17.1 innings.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Back with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled by the Reds on Tuesday.

This will mark Perez's fourth stint with the Reds this season. He has logged 15.2 innings across 17 major-league appearances so far this season, posting a 7.47 ERA and 1.85 WHIP while punching out 13. He'll look to find better results in the majors this time around. Max Schrock was moved to the 10-day IL with a left calf strain in a corresponding roster move.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Perez was called up by Cincinnati on Thursday, but he'll return to the minors to make room on the active roster for Wade Miley (foot), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday. Perez made two relief appearances during his most recent stint in the majors and allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out one in 1.2 innings.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled by the Reds on Thursday.

Perez has spent two separate stints with the Reds so far this year, posting a 7.71 ERA and a 12:14 K:BB in 14 innings of work. He'll likely be limited to low-leverage work during his time with the team. Jeff Hoffman (shoulder) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

Perez has thrown 14 innings of relief for the Reds this season but hasn't had much success. His 7.71 ERA doesn't come as much of a surprise, as he's walked 14 batters while striking out just 12. Mark Payton was recalled in a corresponding move.

May 5, 2021 10:44 AM
Reds' Cionel Perez: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was recalled by the Reds on Wednesday.

Perez made 10 relief appearances for Cincinnati to begin the year and posted an 8.31 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in 8.2 innings. The southpaw pitched in Tuesday's season opener for Triple-A Louisville and allowed no hits and a walk while striking out two in one scoreless inning. He'll now return to the major-league bullpen after right-hander Jose De Leon was sent down in a corresponding move.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Optioned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez was optioned to the Reds' taxi squad Friday.

Perez hasn't looked good in 10 relief appearances so far this season. He's allowed eight earned runs in 8.2 innings, striking out eight while walking eight.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Earns win in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (1-0) picked up the win Friday night, with the Reds scoring a run in the 10th inning after he got the last two outs in the ninth.

Perez gives the Reds yet another high-velocity reliever, and he's throwing harder now than he did with the Astros by nearly two mph. He walked a batter on Friday night, and that's been the concern with him in the past -- he walked six batters in 6.1 frames with Houston last year.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Secures bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds informed Perez on Monday that he would be included in the club's Opening Day bullpen, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Acquired from the Astros earlier in the winter, Perez was able to push his way on to the Opening Day roster after striking out nine while giving up only two earned runs over 10.2 innings this spring. Though Perez had previously been developed as a starter while in the Houston organization, his smallish frame likely makes him a better fit in the bullpen. He's flashed some intriguing skills this spring, most notably touching 98 miles per hour with his fastball in his latest Cactus League outing Sunday. Expect him to work in the middle innings to begin the season.

Reds' Cionel Perez: Assigned minor-league option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez will have a fourth minor-league option in 2021, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Perez spent most of the 2020 season at the Astros' alternate training site, and an arbitrator ruled Wednesday that the southpaw will have an additional option with his new club in 2021. The decision will give the Reds more flexibility this year and makes it more likely that Perez will begin the season at Triple-A Louisville. Perez has made nine appearances (one start) this spring and has posted a 0.93 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 9.2 innings.

January 24, 2021 09:04 AM
Reds' Cionel Perez: Traded to Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Sent down by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Gets big-league callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Heading to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Astros' Cionel Perez: Placed on 10-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

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.
