BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Perez missed almost the entire season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He returned to the minors on rehab in August (after a premature outing in June, resulting in two more months on the shelf). Half a dozen appearances in the majors in September gave cause for neither concern nor excitement. That's probably about what one should expect in 2014, as well. Think of him not as a LOOGY (although he does fare significantly better against lefties) but as an ELLLY: Everyday Low-Leverage LeftY.
2013 Perez has some meat on his fastball, or at least he did before tearing the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. He underwent Tommy John surgery in late July. He may be able to return before the 2013 season is out, but considering his mediocre performance to date, the Blue Jays won't hold their breath waiting for him.
2012 During an uninspiring second go-round as a starter at Triple-A, Perez was called up to provide help in the bullpen. He had a short stint with the club in April, then was called up more or less for good in late May. As a reliever, he wasnít so bad: the Dominican lefty posted a 4.27 ERA and a 2.44 strikeout-to-walk ratio. However, when called on to make four starts in the wake of Brad Millsís demotion, Perez fared hardly better than Mills and allowed 15 runs in 18 2/3 innings. Perez is a lefty with a decent fastball-slider combination, and the Blue Jays have plenty of fringy starters, so why get fancy? Perezís future is in the bullpen.
2011 Luis Perez fell apart completely in Triple-A, as the combination of the tough Las Vegas environment and poor control set fire to his ERA.
2010 A 25-year-old sinkerballer who was unexceptional at Double-A last year, Luis Perez does happen to be left-handed, which maybe why he continues to cling to a 40-man roster spot.
2009 Lefty Luis Perez spins a nice sinker and had a strong full-season debut starting for Lansing last year, but he did it at the relatively advance age of 23.
