Struggling in Appy League
SSSt. Louis Cardinals  AA
July 6, 2017
Perez, 18, is hitting .162/.295/.216 with one extra-base hit (a triple) and two steals on three attempts in 37 at-bats in the Appalachian League.
He posted a .745 OPS in the Gulf Coast League last year, but is struggling to get hits in the early going in the more advanced rookie league. His .231 BABIP is a big reason for his poor slash line, and his 8:6 K:BB is very encouraging.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
A high-pedigree shortstop with a prototypical 6-foot-3, 175-pound teenage frame, Perez made sense as an upside play when he fell to the Cardinals with the 23rd overall pick in 2016, even with a positive PED test before the draft. He also made sense as an investment in dynasty leagues last offseason, as power/speed prep shortstops are a rare breed. However, in 34 games last season at age-appropriate rookie levels, he was pretty awful, particularly after a promotion to the more advanced Appalachian League. Perez has also had a hard time staying on the field, as he missed time in 2016 with a leg injury, while a broken hand ended his 2017 season. There is no reason to continue holding him in most dynasty formats, as there is a never-ending stream of rookie-league hitters with upside and major hit tool concerns. Just make sure to keep him on watch lists, because if he starts to hit, his plus speed and power projection would warrant ownership in most dynasty leagues.
Perez was in the conversation as the potential No. 1 pick in 2016 but a positive PED test before the draft hurt his stock, sinking him to 23rd overall. The Cardinals took the leap, evidently seeing the combination of plus speed, a plus arm and good bat speed on a 6-foot-3 frame as enough to outweigh any concerns over the legitimacy of his pre-draft production or any character issues. The early returns for St. Louis were promising in rookie ball. He showed good instincts on the basepaths by being caught stealing just once. He just turned 18 in November and might not even get a full-season assignment to begin 2017. That lack of proximity limits his keeper league appeal, but this is an intriguing offensive skill set on a player who's a safe bet to stick at shortstop. His prospect stock could tick up considerably if he starts tapping into some power.
