Blake Perkins

27-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Milwaukee Brewers
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Perkins joined the Brewers last offseason and made his MLB debut in 2023, posting a .217/.325/.350 slash line with four homers and five steals in 67 games. The offensive production was forgettable, but a 13.9 percent walk rate coupled with strong defense (11 DRS) led to a regular role before being sidelined for a month during the second half with an oblique strain. Perkins seems unlikely to operate as much more than a fourth outfielder given Milwaukee's plethora of young outfield talent, but he could still provide some bench value for the Brewers.

ANALYSIS
Perkins has struggled over his last 10 games, going 4-for-31 with a 34.3 percent strikeout rate, and he has not recorded a hit over his last four games. Sal Frelick, Jackson Chourio and Christian Yelich will man the outfield Friday while Tyler Black serves as the designated hitter against Padres right-hander Dylan Cease.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Bunting with regularity
OFMilwaukee Brewers
May 31, 2024
According to Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Perkins has squared to bunt in 12 consecutive starts and has two bunt hits during that stretch.
ANALYSIS
The Brewers as a team have been one of the most bunt-happy clubs in baseball and rank third with 21 bunts, which matches their full-season total from 2023. Perkins opened the season as Milwaukee's No. 4 outfielder, but he's turned into a lineup regular in center field with five home runs and a .241/.324/.367 slash line in 47 games. The 27-year-old's offense has tapered off with a .584 OPS in May, but his strong defense in center field -- he has plus-five defensive runs saved in 393.1 innings -- gives him a stable role despite the offensive inconsistency.
See All MLB Rumors
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Perkins is known for his defense but finally started to find a bit of a rhythm offensively in 2022, putting up an .813 OPS with 15 home runs and 21 stolen bases over 101 games between Double- and Triple-A in the Yankees organization. That earned him a major-league contract from the Brewers even as he's yet to see any action at the big-league level. The switch-hitting Perkins is 26 but still a work-in-progress and Milwaukee figures to use his options and keep him at Triple-A to see if he can continue to build some momentum.
