Phillies' Hector Perez: Joins Philadelphia on MiLB pact
Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Saturday.
The 27-year-old right-hander received a brief cup of coffee with the Rays earlier this season for what was his first MLB appearance since 2020, but he's otherwise spent the entire 2023 campaign at Triple-A Durham before he elected free agency earlier this month. Over 33 appearances with Durham spanning 53 innings, Perez compiled a 4.08 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 69:30 K:BB. He's expected to settle into a multi-inning relief role with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate in Lehigh Valley.... See More ... See Less
Hector Perez: Searching for new home
Perez elected free agency Sunday.
Rather than sticking around in the Rays organization after clearing waivers upon being designated for assignment Thursday, the 27-year-old right-hander will seek out an opportunity elsewhere. Perez made just one appearance at the big-league level prior to losing his 40-man roster spot and had instead spent most of the season at Triple-A Durham, where he accrued a 4.08 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 69:30 K:BB across 53 frames....

Rays' Hector Perez: Pushed off 40-man roster
Perez was designated for assignment by the Rays on Thursday.

Rays' Hector Perez: Added to roster
The Rays selected Perez's contract from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Perez was removed from Tampa Bay's 40-man roster back in April but has found his way back to the big leagues. While the 27-year-old was with the Rays briefly earlier this season, he didn't appear in a game and hasn't seen any action in the majors since 2020. He'll be ticketed for a low-leverage relief role while he's with Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less

Rays' Hector Perez: DFA'd by Tampa Bay
Perez was designated for assignment by the Rays on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Tampa Bay selected Perez's contract on Saturday, and he'll lose his spot on the 26-man and 40-man rosters without appearing in a game. The 26-year-old has given up six earned runs with a 13:3 K:BB over seven innings at Triple-A Durham this season, and he'll likely return to the affiliate if he passes through waivers unclaimed....

Perez has one career MLB appearance under his belt, giving up two runs in 1.2 innings for the Blue Jays back in 2020. He's given up six runs in seven innings for Triple-A Durham this season but has also struck out 13 batters. Cooper Criswell was optioned in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Hector Perez: Catches on with O's
Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Wednesday, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The 25-year-old right-hander received a cup of coffee in the majors with the Blue Jays in 2020, but he spent the entire 2021 campaign in the minor leagues as a member of the Reds organization. Between stops at Triple-A Louisville and Double-A Chattanooga, Perez turned in a 6.16 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Hector Perez: Clears waivers
Perez cleared waivers and was outrighted off the 40-man roster Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Perez was designated for assignment on Wednesday. It's no surprise to see him pass through waivers unclaimed, as he owns a 9.35 ERA and a 23.9 percent walk rate through 8.2 innings for Triple-A Louisville this season.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Hector Perez: DFA'd by Cincinnati
Perez was designated for assignment by the Reds on Wednesday.
The 24-year-old was acquired from the Blue Jays in January, but he'll be removed from the 40-man roster before making a big-league appearance with the Reds. Perez had a rough start to the season at Triple-A Louisville with nine runs allowed and a 7:11 K:BB across 8.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Perez was traded from the Blue Jays to the Reds on Friday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.
The minor move clears a 40-man roster spot for Toronto to add the newly acquired George Springer. Perez made his big-league debut as a 24-year-old last season, making a single relief appearance. Prior to that, he'd pitched at the Double-A level, posting a 4.60 ERA and a 12.3 percent walk rate in 24 starts and two bullpen appearances in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Returns to alternate camp
Perez was optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Thursday.
Perez couldn't hold the Yankees in check during his major-league debut Wednesday as he allowed two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one over 1.2 innings during the Blue Jays' blowout loss. He'll head back to the alternate training site just one day after being added to the active roster. Wilmer Font and T.J. Zeuch will join the major-league bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Called up by Toronto
Perez was recalled by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Perez has worked at the Blue Jays' alternate training site this season, but he'll be in line to make his major-league debut with just under two weeks remaining in the regular season. The right-hander worked mainly as a starter in the minors and posted a 4.60 ERA and 117:67 K:BB over 121.1 innings over 26 appearances (24 starts) at the Double-A level last year. It's unclear whether Perez will work as a starter or as a reliever during his first taste of major-league action.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Joins camp in Toronto
Perez (undisclosed) joined Blue Jays camp Monday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Perez was placed on the injured list at the start of the month due to an undisclosed issue. He remains on the list despite evidently being cleared to link up with his teammates. Whether or not he has enough time to get in game shape by Opening Day remains to be seen, but he's not high on the Blue Jays' depth chart, so he wasn't particularly likely to be on the roster even without the delay....

Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Checks in on IL
The Blue Jays placed Perez on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue.
Perez was one of four Blue Jays placed on the IL, with no explanation given for any of the transactions. The move is retroactive to June 30, so if deemed healthy, Perez would be eligible to return from the IL before the Blue Jays begin their season July 23 or 24. The 24-year-old was viewed as a longshot to break summer camp with the Blue Jays as a member of the 30-man Opening Day roster, and the fact that he'll be beginning workouts on the IL will only diminish his chances further....

Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Nabs spot in roster pool
The Blue Jays included Perez as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old righty is merely expected to function as an insurance option in the rotation for the Blue Jays, who already have several starting pitchers ahead of him in the pecking order. Perez spent the entire 2019 campaign with Double-A New Hampshire, supplying a 4.60 ERA and striking out 117 over 121.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Moves to Triple-A
The Blue Jays optioned Perez to Triple-A Buffalo on March 10.
Perez will likely fill a spot in Buffalo's rotation after making 24 of his 26 appearances as a starter at Double-A New Hampshire a season ago. He covered 121.1 innings in 2019, finishing with a 4.60 ERA and 117:67 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Placed on 40-man roster
Perez was added to Toronto's 40-man roster Tuesday.
Perez recorded a 3.86 ERA with 32 punchouts over 25 innings (five starts) with Double-A New Hampshire after being traded from the Astros at the end of July. He was granted protection from the Rule 5 draft to ensure he would remain with Toronto's farm system.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hector Perez: Dealt to Toronto
Perez was traded to the Blue Jays alongside Ken Giles and David Paulino for Roberto Osuna (suspension) on Monday.
Perez has spent most of the 2018 campaign at the High-A level but was recently promoted to Double-A Corpus Christi, where he's logged a 3.24 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 16.2 innings of work. The 22-year-old will likely slide into the rotation with Toronto's Double-A affiliate upon his arrival. He has electric stuff (101 strikeouts in 89.1 innings this year), but his shaky command/control (48 walks) could confine him to a relief role long term.... See More ... See Less
