Martin Perez surrendered three runs on 10 hits over seven innings Monday in the Rangers' loss to the Mariners.

Perez escaped with a no-decision, as this one wasn't decided until the 12th inning. The left-hander is 2-4 with a 6.15 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 10 starts this season.
Aug 7 - 12:13 AM

Martin Perez allowed four runs (one earned) on six hits over five innings of work in a no-decision against the D-backs on Monday.

Perez coughed up a go-ahead three-run homer to Steven Sousa with two outs in the fifth inning. All three of the runs were unearned thanks to a throwing error by third baseman Adrian Beltre earlier in the frame. The Rangers offense managed to get him off the hook by outscoring Arizona 6-1 over the final four innings. Perez struck out five batters and issued a pair of walks. The 27-year-old lefty is 2-4 with a 6.50 ERA in nine starts. He will face the Orioles at home on Sunday in his next outing.
Jul 31 - 3:19 AM

Martin Perez held the Athletics to one run across six innings but had to settle for a no-decision in a game his team eventually lost on Wednesday.

It was far from a dominant effort but he found a way to keep the Athletics off the scoreboard for the most part. The only run he allowed came on a Matt Olson double in the first inning. Perez struck out four, walked three and surrendered seven base hits while burning 107 pitches in the quality start. This has been a rough season for Perez, who spent 10 weeks on the disabled list with an elbow injury. When he's been able to pitch he's been hit hard. He has a 2-4 record with a gruesome 7.08 ERA and frightful 2.02 WHIP in eight starts. Despite the good results today he is not a recommended fantasy play when he faces the Diamondbacks on the road on Monday.
Jul 26 - 12:58 AM

Martin Perez was hit hard in a no-decision against the Indians on Friday, giving up six runs on 10 hits across his 5 1/3 innings of work.

The left-hander struck out four and walked two on the night. The Indians scratched out three runs against him in the second inning, on the back of a two-run homer from Jason Kipnis, then they tacked on three more while chasing him in the sixth. Perez has been a disaster this season, compiling an 8.05 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over 34 2/3 innings in his first seven starts. He should be nowhere near any fantasy lineups for Wednesday's matchup against the Athletics.
Jul 21 - 1:02 AM

Making his first start since April 29, Martin Perez allowed just one run on five hits over seven innings in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Perez missed two-and-a-half months rehabbing from a right elbow injury, but if there was rust from the long layoff, it didn't show in his return to the mound on Saturday. The only run he allowed in the game -- the only run to score in the game -- came when Jonathan Schoop nicked him for a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. He struck out four and walked two in the contest while finishing up having thrown 91 pitches (51 strikes). As nice as this start was, Perez held an ugly 9.67 ERA in five starts prior to landing on the disabled list and does not hold any fantasy upside. He owns a career ERA of 4.60 in just over 700 innings pitched.
Jul 14 - 10:10 PM

Rangers activated LHP Martin Perez from the 60-day disabled list.

Perez will return to the Rangers' starting rotation on Saturday against the Orioles. Prior to landing on the disabled list with an elbow issue in late April, Perez had posted a troublesome 9.67 ERA through his first five starts. He isn't a recommended streaming option in fantasy leagues.
Jul 14 - 3:12 PM

Martin Perez (elbow) will make another minor league rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Round Rock.

Perez has worked 11 scoreless innings between Low-A Hickory and Double-A Frisco, and could be cleared to return to the Rangers' rotation next week if Thursday's outing goes as smoothly. The 27-year-old left-hander was placed on the disabled list in late April with an elbow injury after posting a 9.67 ERA over his first five starts for Texas.
Jul 3 - 4:24 PM

Martin Perez (elbow) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Low-A Hickory.

Perez has been on the disabled list since late April with discomfort in his surgically-repaired right (non-throwing) arm, and he figures to need at least 3-4 starts on the farm to get properly stretched out. The 27-year-old southpaw had a hideous 9.67 ERA through his first five starts this season with the Rangers.
Jun 22 - 5:47 PM

Martin Perez (elbow) is hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment starting on Monday.

Perez was able to toss live batting practice on Wednesday; a positive sign for a pitcher that has been out since the end of April. The Rangers have yet to make a decision as to whether or not Perez will begin his rehab assignment next week. He was transferred to the 60-day disabled list on Friday, and was hammered for a 9.67 ERA in his five starts earlier this year for the Rangers.
Jun 20 - 5:34 PM

Rangers transferred LHP Martin Perez from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Perez has been out since late April with discomfort in his right elbow and isn't close to returning. The 27-year-old southpaw had an ugly 9.67 ERA through his first five starts this season with Texas.
Jun 15 - 4:14 PM

Martin Perez (elbow) had a "touch-and-feel" throwing session off flat ground Monday.

Perez isn't ready to throw off a mound just yet, as he's not ready to use a regular baseball glove with his surgically-repaired right (non-throwing) elbow. Continued discomfort in his elbow is what sent him to the disabled list at the end of April. Perez used a batting glove during Monday's throwing session. He still appears a ways off from rejoining the Rangers.
May 29 - 11:40 AM

Martin Perez has been diagnosed with inflammation in his right arm after being examined by Dr. Keith Meister on Monday.

Perez went on the disabled list Monday with continued soreness in his surgically-repaired right arm, but it doesn't appear he has any more structural damage. He will undergo treatment, rest and rehab. There's no timetable for his return.
Apr 30 - 9:08 PM

Rangers placed LHP Martin Perez on the 10-day disabled list with continued discomfort in his right elbow.

Perez has returned to Texas to be examined by Dr. Keith Meister, which isn't a good sign. The southpaw had surgery on his non-throwing elbow back in December and hasn't look right at all this season, posting a 9.67 ERA with seven homers allowed through five starts.
Apr 30 - 2:04 PM

Martin Perez gave up four runs in as many innings of work on Sunday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Perez once again was homer prone, as he gave up three long balls against the Toronto lineup on Sunday. He also walked four, and his ERA has ballooned to 9.67. It's impossible to trust Perez even against bad lineups right now, and he'll certainly be a starter to avoid when he pitches against the Red Sox next Sunday.
