Player Preview: Oliver Perez

Perez then spent some time relearning his pitching mechanics and how to get people out in the minor leagues. He was picked up by the Nationals 2 days after being released by the mets and put at Double A Harrisburg. He started 15 games there and relieved once. In 2012, the Mariners picked up the lefty on a minor league deal. Perez earned a nod back up to the big club in Seattle as a reliever on June 16th and he would go on to pitch 29 and 2/3 innings as a Mariner with a 2.12 ERA and a 2.93 FIP. Given the good performance, the Mariners brought him back for a second season where he would have his best year yet as a reliever. Perez had a 12.57 K/9 and a 3.26 FIP over the course of 53 innings in 2013. 2014 and 2015 saw continued success for Perez for the Diamondbacks and the Astros.
