Carlos Perez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Athletics' 11-3 loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

Oakland A's catcher Carlos Perez is back in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Angels.
Perez got the night off Tuesday but is right back in the lineup one night later. He's been hit to start the season as he's hitting a whopping .414 with a 1.024 OPS across 32 trips to the plate. However, he also sports a massive .500 BABIP that has regression written all over it moving forward. He'll hit fifth and catch Luis Medina who is making his MLB debut.
Oakland A's catcher Carlos Perez notched three hits for the second consecutive game Thursday versus the Baltimore Orioles.
Not sure how many saw this coming from the light-hitting 32-year-old backstop. Perez homered and singled twice Wednesday night and notched a trio of singles and a run scored on Thursday afternoon. The last 24 hours have vaulted him to a .615 average with a 1.461 OPS across seven games and 13 at-bats.
Oakland A's catcher Carlos Perez hit a home run and collected three hits in an 8-4 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday.
After catcher Shea Langeliers homered Tuesday it was Perez's turn one day later as he smacked a fifth-inning solo shot off Dean Kremer. Perez also singled twice and added an additional RBI on the evening. The 32-year-old hadn't appeared at the plate since starting on April 4 but he now has a hit in all three games in which he's made a plate appearance this season. With the young Langeliers on board, Perez's playing time will be very limited this season.
The Orioles have signed catcher Carlos Perez to a minor league contract.
Perez, 28, slashed .143/.178/.214 in 28 games last season. Perez could earn up to $650,000 if he makes the Orioles roster. He has little to no fantasy value.
