Rangers' Martin Perez: Accepts qualifying offer
Perez accepted the Rangers' one-year, $19.65 million qualifying offer Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Most players who are extended qualifying offers decline them, but with Perez coming off a career year that kind of came out of nowhere, it's not surprising to see him take this significant one-year contract. The 31-year-old southpaw logged a 2.89 ERA, 3.59 xERA, 1.26 WHIP and 169 strikeouts in 196.1 innings (10th most in the majors) last season.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Martin Perez: Allows three runs in loss
Perez (12-7) was tagged with the loss against Seattle on Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three batters over seven innings.
Perez gave up two runs in the first inning and another in the third before settling down and finishing with four scoreless frames. The left-hander got little run support, however, and ended up with the loss despite tossing his fourth quality start in five September outings. Perez will need to pick up a win in his final start of the season to tie his career-best total of 13, but he's already racked up a career high in strikeouts (167) and is essentially guaranteed to end with his best marks in ERA (currently at 2.93) and WHIP (currently at 1.25)....
