Tampa Bay Rays
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Perez joined the Rays in late July following a trade from Arizona, heading straight to the majors for his first big-league action and remaining there until a hamstring strain ended his season in late August. He didn't do anything particularly special with the bat, but his .284/.304/.392 line in 80 plate appearances was perfectly adequate for a backstop. He didn't project as anything more than a backup as a prospect, and he'll likely be fighting for that role with Nick Ciuffo this spring, with offseason acquisition Mike Zunino penciled in for the starting job. Perez's 3.8% walk rate is a cause for concern, though he walked 8.3% of the time for Triple-A Reno prior to the trade. Don't expect too much from the 26-year-old, but there's enough there for him to be a competent deep-league fill-in should he end up with a run of playing time. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks in October of 2017. Traded to the Rays in July of 2018.
Ready for spring
CTampa Bay Rays
January 26, 2019
Perez (hamstring) said Friday that he's "completely" ready to go for spring training, Juan C. Toribio of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After being acquired from the Diamondbacks on July 31, Perez had a brief, but productive run as the Rays' top catcher before his season came to an end in late August when he strained his left hamstring. He was cleared to return to action for a couple of winter-ball games in Puerto Rico and experienced no setbacks in those contests, giving him full confidence in his health heading into the spring. Perez will likely work as the Rays' No. 2 backstop in 2019 after the team traded for Mike Zunino earlier in the offseason.
