There are so many good players in Major League Baseball. Why, then, I focus so much on one of the worst ones is beyond me. But I do, probably because of that contract.
Anyway, here’s Oliver Perez‘s line against the Astros today: three innings, three earned runs — all in the first inning — four hits, two walks, one strikeout. He threw 47 pitches, 28 for strikes.
There’s really nothing good to latch onto there. I’d release him. Adam Rubin thinks it was his last start, even if Perez himself was happy that his velocity was a bit better than it was for his last couple of starts. At this point, though, you gotta do the guy the courtesy of having time to try and latch on in another camp, don’t you?
