Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2019
Perez paired a career-high 93 plate appearances with a career-worst 35 wRC+ in 2020. His struggles convinced the Rays to part ways with him in the offseason, though he has since found a new home in Pittsburgh. In 228 major-league plate appearances, Perez has accrued a 28.5% strikeout rate with just a .093 ISO. Some small glimmers of promise may linger under the disappointing numbers, however, as Perez was regarded as an athletic prospect with ability as a hitter. That athleticism has come through defensively in varying degrees, as Perez has improved his ability to control the running game, though his framing still lags behind. While unlikely, it's possible a step forward with his bat is next as Perez is entering his age 29 season. Jacob Stallings is locked in as the Pirates' primary backstop, though it's a near certainty that Perez will surpass his previous season-best 93 plate appearances.
Perez joined the Rays in late July following a trade from Arizona, heading straight to the majors for his first big-league action and remaining there until a hamstring strain ended his season in late August. He didn't do anything particularly special with the bat, but his .284/.304/.392 line in 80 plate appearances was perfectly adequate for a backstop. He didn't project as anything more than a backup as a prospect, and he'll likely be fighting for that role with Nick Ciuffo this spring, with offseason acquisition Mike Zunino penciled in for the starting job. Perez's 3.8% walk rate is a cause for concern, though he walked 8.3% of the time for Triple-A Reno prior to the trade. Don't expect too much from the 26-year-old, but there's enough there for him to be a competent deep-league fill-in should he end up with a run of playing time.
