Oliver Perez won't accept another minor league assignment

Jul 31, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

Jon Heyman of SI.com hears that Oliver Perez will not agree to a second minor league assignment.

The left-hander has only made two appearances since re-joining the team on July 21 and hasn’t pitched since giving up a walkoff home run to James Loney in an extra-inning loss to the Dodgers last Saturday. According to Heyman, Mets manager Jerry Manuel has already told Perez that he will not pitch him at home.

So, for those keeping score, Perez is the Mets’ emergency left-handed specialist, but only on the road. Pretty good gig, man.

    This pitcher is a pathetic athelete. The Mets should just cut their losses or have him ride the pine.
