Athletics' Carlos Perez: Garners RBI in rare start
Perez went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.
Making only his third start since May 21 for a resting Shea Langeliers, Perez was able to contribute one of two Athletics runs on the afternoon with his sixth-inning grounder. The veteran backstop has made relatively good use of his intermittent opportunities, producing a career-best .268/.337/.402 slash line over 92 plate appearances. With fellow veteran Manny Pina (wrist) on the 60-day injured list and out indefinitely, Perez's role as Langeliers' occasional fill-in appears secure.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Hits third homer of season
Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-7 victory over Texas.
Perez has been extremely productive across 21 games so far this season. The catcher now has a .321 batting average, as well as a .908 OPS. The 32-year-old veteran has never been able to put together a full season in the big leagues, so expectations should still be tempered.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Homers Wednesday
Perez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.
Perez got Oakland on the board in the second inning with a solo shot off Jhony Brito. It's the second homer of the year for Perez, his first since April 12. The 32-year-old catcher has hit safely in four straight contests, though the home run was his first extra-base hit in eight games. He is now slashing .327/.390/.481 with six RBI and six runs scored through 59 plate appearances. While Perez's numbers are impressive in a vacuum, he doesn't have much fantasy value while backing up Shea Langeliers.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Wreaks havoc out of bottom of order
Perez went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Wednesday.
The veteran backstop launched a 396-foot shot to left field in the fifth inning to extend the Athletics' lead to 4-2 at the time, and he followed with a timely knock to plate Nick Allen in the eighth. Perez is receiving sparse opportunities thus far behind Shea Langeliers, but he's hit safely in each of the three games in which he's registered at least one plate appearance.... See More ...

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Wins roster spot
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Tuesday that Perez will be included on the team's Opening Day roster, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Though Perez has been with the organization for less than two weeks after signing a minor-league contract March 19, he'll end up breaking camp with the big club as the No. 2 catcher behind Shea Langeliers while Manny Pina (wrist) opens the season on the injured list. While Langeliers is expected to see the overwhelming share of playing time behind the dish, Perez may bring more fantasy upside to the table than the typical backup catcher. The 32-year-old is coming off back-to-back 31-home run campaigns with the Athletics' Triple-A affiliate in 2021 and the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate in 2022. Expect Oakland to formally add Perez to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster shortly before Thursday's game against the Angels.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Homers in Sunday's loss
Perez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the Athletics' 9-5 Bay Bridge Series exhibition loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Perez was an in-game replacement at catcher following Shea Langeliers' time behind the dish. The 32-year-old is slated to serve as early-season depth behind Langeliers while Manny Pina (wrist) remains sidelined, and although he just signed last Sunday, he's gone 3-for-8 with Sunday's homer and three RBI across his first four games....

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Finds work with Oakland
Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Sunday.
The 32-year-old journeyman catcher isn't expected to contend for a long-term spot on the Athletics' 26-man active roster in 2023, but he could be needed for depth behind No. 1 option Shea Langeliers with Manny Pina (wrist) in line to open the season on the injured list. Yohel Pozo likely represents Perez's primary competition for the No. 2 role behind the dish. Perez spent the 2022 season in the Rockies organization and was a standout performer in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, slashing .254/.341/.524 with 31 home runs and 87 RBI in 522 plate appearances....

The 31-year-old should serve as organizational depth but could receive a big-league opportunity with another strong campaign.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Reassigned to minor-league camp
Perez was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.
Perez made a strong case for the backup catcher job during spring training this year, but Aramis Garcia was informed Saturday that he'll make the Opening Day roster after Perez was sent to the minors. Perez hit .304 with a double, three runs and two RBI in 14 Cactus League games this spring and will begin the season at Triple-A Las Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Distinguishes himself in job battle
Perez remains a strong candidate to win the backup catcher job heading into the final days of spring training, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Perez is in one of the more heated job battles of Athletics camp with Aramis Garcia, who's also impressed in his bid to serve as Sean Murphy's primary backup behind the dish to open the season. Perez is more of a known quantity to the organization than offseason arrival Garcia, with the former having spent the 2020 campaign distinguishing himself at Oakland's alternate training site with his ability to handle the younger pitchers on the roster. The 30-year-old hasn't seen regular-season action since 2018, but he's hitting a solid .273 (6-for-22) with an RBI across 13 spring games.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Starting against Mariners
Perez (not injury related) is batting sixth and playing catcher in Saturday's spring game against Seattle, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Arrival delayed by visa issue
Perez has not yet arrived at spring training due to a visa issue, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The veteran catcher inked a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Jan. 29 but will apparently have to wait a bit longer before getting a chance to jump into workouts. With fellow backstop Sean Murphy still on the mend from lung surgery and not likely to start baseball activity "for a while" according to manager Bob Melvin, Perez could be in line for a solid allotment of reps alongside Aramis Garcia in early workouts and Cactus League games....

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Back in Oakland
Perez signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The 30-year-old has spent parts of four seasons in the big leagues, though he hasn't done much with his opportunities and hasn't received any since 2018. in 670 career plate appearances at the highest level, he owns a .215/.257/.319 slash line. He was a member of Oakland's player pool last season but never made it onto the big-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Carlos Perez: Makes it on player pool
Perez is part of the Athletics' 60-man player pool that will report to summer camp, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The veteran backstop will be one of five catchers in camp, but he's clearly no better than No. 4 on the positional depth chart behind Sean Murphy, Jonah Heim and Austin Allen. That trio is expected to make the 30-man Opening Day roster, which means Perez, who's on a minor-league contract, appears destined for the additional pool of up to 30 players that won't have active status but will continue to train in a separate location during the season....

Athletics' Carlos Perez: Agrees to MiLB contract
Perez signed a minor-league contract with Oakland on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training.

Orioles' Carlos Perez: Heading to minors
Perez was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Perez had been in camp as a non-roster invitee but was always going to be a long shot to make the roster. With a career .215/.257/.319 line in parts of four big-league seasons, the 28-year-old is unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact even if he winds up with unexpected at-bats.... See More ...

Orioles' Carlos Perez: Latches on with Orioles
Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training, though Perez seems more likely to open the season in the minors as catching depth. The backstop spent time with the Braves and Rangers in 2018, appearing in 28 games and slashing .143/.178/.214.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Carlos Perez: Likely headed for free agency
Perez was outrighted from the Rangers' 40-man roster Friday and is expected to elect free agency instead of accepting a minor-league assignment.
Perez spent a majority of the 2018 campaign with Texas after being designated for assignment by Atlanta in late April. In total, he played in 28 games, slashing just .143/.178/.214 with three RBI in 75 plate appearances. The 28-year-old will likely be on the look for a new home this winter.... See More ... See Less
