2023 Fantasy Outlook
At certain points in 2022, Perez had a decent case to be considered the top pitching prospect for fantasy. Over the first three months of the season, the lanky 6-foot-8 19-year-old righty had a 3.05 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 87:14 K:BB in 62 innings across 13 starts. If we exclude his first three starts, Perez had a 1.98 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 69 strikeouts in 50 innings from April 29 through July 7. He was a 19-year-old in complete control of at-bats against hitters who were often three to five years his senior. However, he started scuffling after that and was sent to the injured list with arm fatigue. Fortunately, he made it back in September and struck out 17 in seven innings across three appearances, so we can at least say he finished the season healthy. Perez has a deep, four-pitch arsenal headlined by a mid-to-upper-90s fastball that gets on hitters even quicker thanks to his extension. His command and composure are perhaps the most impressive aspects of his profile, as many talented starters his age are a year or two away from having the maturity to get Double-A hitters out. He probably won't get to 150 innings in his age-20 season, but he should make his big-league debut if he stays healthy. Read Past Outlooks

Misses out on Opening Day roster

March 20, 2023
The Marlins reassigned Perez to minor-league camp Monday, Christina De Nicola of reports.
The Marlins' top pitching prospect won't be included on the Opening Day roster, but the 19-year-old right-hander remains a candidate to make his MLB debut in 2023 if he stays healthy and continues to excel at the upper levels of the minors. Perez was hit hard in spring training -- he surrendered nine earned runs, 14 hits and two home runs in 10.2 innings -- but his control was solid (10:2 K:BB) in his limited sample of action. Miami hasn't indicated whether Perez will return to Double-A Pensacola to begin the campaign or if he'll report to Triple-A Jacksonville.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
We all know how risky pitchers of Perez's ilk are at this point, but he has still captivated the imaginations of many and has a universal approval rating from scouts. The 6-foot-8 righty won't turn 19 until April, and yet he has already dominated Low-A (1.61 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 27.5 K-BB%) and was similarly exceptional in five starts at High-A to close last season (2.86 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, 25.3 K-BB%). His fastball is a devastating offering, touching the high-90s and playing up even more due to the extension Perez generates from his long levers and the excellent vertical break on the pitch. He also threw the pitch for strikes 71% of the time, making it essentially a perfect fastball. His secondary pitches remain a work in progress, which is fine, given his youth, but the quality of his fastball and control should allow all of his pitches to play up. The Marlins have the lanky righty on the fast track, but he hasn't experienced any adversity yet, and those streaks don't usually last as young pitchers march to the big leagues.
