RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Carlos Perez.
Perez scuffled along at Low-A Lansing, hitting just .256/.320/.355 on the heels of a pair of nice seasons the previous two years. He'll likely start the season at High-A Dunedin which will be a very stiff test for the 21-year-old backstop. He's been passed back up by Travis d'Arnaud in the organizational pecking order among catching prospects and is a good candidate to get dealt if the Jays try to upgrade at a few positions. The skill set is there for a retrenching year but it'll likely get masked by the pitcher-friendly confines of the Florida State League.
Perez already comes with a strong defensive reputation, so it's a positive sign that his bat is beginning to draw some attention as well. He more than held his own as a 19-year-old at Low-A Auburn last season, hitting .298 with 34 walks and 41 strikeouts in 278 plate appearances. He'll presumably start to show more power as he matures and gains experience, and his glove figures to keep him behind the plate as he advances. He's a name to keep an eye on as he moves to the pitcher-friendly Florida State League.
