BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 The Nats' surprising Opening Day starter—on national television no less, and deflowering a new stadium—turned in his best year since 2004, despite a mid-season bout with tendinitis. He can carve up lefties with a wicked curve, but the trick is how to get all those nasty righthanders out—they creamed him for .306/.367/.507 rates. Perez filed for free agency after the season, and, just like earlier last year, interest was spotty, with everyone waiting until the higher-level guys clear out. He's the major league version of the last guy picked for kickball.
2008 Maybe he really wasn't tanking to get out of LA; maybe he just started to suck. Perez filled the rotation slot vacated by Mark Redman and responded with an equally replacement-level performance. His main contribution to the Royals was in bringing along a pair of pitching prospects, including the next player on this page, as the price for taking him off the Dodgers' hands. Weak free-agent market or no, it's non-tender time.
2007 As a Dodger last season, Perez surrendered a whopping .372 batting average on balls in play. For all the explanations as to why he flunked his way off the team last year--he lost his stuff, had a bad attitude, was tanking--the explanation for which we have the most evidence was overlooked: He was simply horrendously unlucky on the mound. The Royals don`t have All-Star aspirations for him; they`re simply thrilled they`ve got a starting pitcher who can throw strikes.
2006 Perez`s 2004 postseason struggles were expected to grease the skids for his departure, but even though his services weren`t especially in demand elsewhere, he emerged with a contract in Benson/Milton territory. Continuing his post-millennial trend, Perez followed a good even-numbered year with a bad odd-numbered one, adding injury to insult by missing seven weeks with shoulder tendinitis, and then another five with a strained oblique. The calendar might suggest it`s time for a bounce-back, but with his peripherals steadily eroding since his 2002 breakout, and shoulder woes costing him more and more downtime, the outlook isn`t quite so sunny.
2005 A very good pitcher with tremendous control. His 3.26 ERA was dampened somewhat by Dodger Stadium, and his PERA was higher still. Still, Perez is durable, and he's been healthy, effective and fairly inexpensive. One of those things changed, as Perez re-signed for three years, $24 million. Given the horrid contracts signed elsewhere and how little talent was left by the time the Dodgers re-upped him, it's a reasonable deal for an arm they desperately needed.
2003 Saved the staff, something few would have imagined a year ago. Two years removed from elbow surgery after feeling his way back in 2001, Perez exploded on the National League, grabbing the mantle of staff ace and harnessing his talent into a terrific season. His 129-pitch, two-hit shutout at Coors Field in his third start was the kind of knockout performance expected from Kevin Brown, not a 160-pounder who barely made the Opening Day rotation. Perez yielded just a .226 average to opposing hitters, a figure likely to rise this season as a few more balls in play drop in. Still, if he keeps his walk rate anywhere near this low, he’ll see continued success, albeit not as quasi-Koufaxian as in 2002. Red flag alert: While Tracy did a reasonable job of watching Perez’s pitch counts, anyone who goes from 118 to 222 innings pitched in a span of a year, that close to a major injury, raises the specter of further injury or periods of ineffectiveness going forward.
2002 After elbow surgery, Perez is still throwing hard and still has the nice curveball that made him a great prospect from the get-go. Having lost his job to Marquis (in part because of a poorly-timed fielding injury), he'll go into camp fighting Albie Lopez for a spot in the rotation. Even then, Perez will be the first guy to get bumped for any of the organization’s young pitchers, so despite his talent, his job description is up in the air.
2001 He didn't pitch anywhere in 2000 following Tommy John surgery. Reports out of instructional league in Florida were very positive. Look for 2001 to be a recovery year and 2002 to be the next beginning of what will be a good career.
2000 Perez beat out Bruce Chen in spring training for the #5 starter spot, then watched his career implode. He had problems with his control and was handled badly by Cox and Mazzone, surpassing 120 pitches on April 27 and June 14 despite showing obvious fatigue around the 100-pitch mark. In August, he had Tommy John surgery and will be out until at least 2001. Maybe those two starts didn’t cause the injury, but they certainly didn’t help.
1999 We’re not done with pitching prospects yet. Perez was the youngest pitcher to appear in the major leagues last year, and was very impressive in September as well as the postseason. The Braves liked him in that role so much that he’s probably won a spot in their bullpen this year, and as a left-handed reliever who keeps the ball down and doesn’t beat himself with wildness, he could be amazingly valuable.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-05-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is James MacDonald's future still as a solid rotation guy for the Dodgers, and if so, when do you think he'll get another crack? I agree that the Eric Milton/Jeff Weaver pas de deux is pretty humorous, but MacDonald was getting shelled.
(Chet from Charleston, S.C.)
True, he was, but I think it's interesting that the Dodgers would wind up with Milton or Weaver when better options have bobbed across the wire; I can't help but wonder if this isn't a failure at the top, because a club with LA's resources shouldn't overlook the opportunities to have added someone like Redding or Gaudin. Heck, where's Odalis Perez? Watching daytime television, right? (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-21 15:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Nats doing anything wrong from a training and conditioning standpoint? Treatment? It seems like nobody is safe from the DL.
(Tim from Reston, VA)
It's a combination of risky players -- Nick Johnson, Dmitri Young, Odalis Perez -- and young players, but they're consistently at the bottom. I cant say what they are or aren't doing, though in the past, their lack of facilities was a problem. That excuse is gone and has to be one of the area's the next Nats GM addresses. (Will Carroll)
2008-02-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)You should take the over on the Nationals. You have them at 72, one down from last year's 73. With the upgrades in the OF (Nook/Langerhans for Lastings, Church/Snelling for Wily Mo/Dukes), Nick Johnson coming back, and an improved rotation (giving the innings that went to Jerome Williams, Joel Hanrahan, and Mike Bascik to Odalis Perez, John Patterson, John Lannan, Tyler Clippard, etc.) this team will be better.
(sbiel2 from Washington, DC)
You could be right there. One thing that PECOTA doesn't know, can't know yet, is just how all those playing time decisions will be made. Right now we have a best guess. As we see how the team sorts itself out, that prediction will be open to revision. (Steven Goldman)
