Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com writes that free agent LHP Martin Perez is drawing "strong interest."
Cotillo adds that Perez is in serious negotiations with at least one club. The 29-year-old had his $6.25 million club option rejected by the Red Sox at the start of the offseason, but it appears that he could sign elsewhere rather quickly. Perez posted a 4.50 ERA in 12 starts during the 2020 campaign.
Martin Perez took the loss Thursday, coughing up six runs on nine hits and a walk over four innings in a 13-1 loss to the Orioles. He struck out two.
Perez finishes 2020 with a 3-5 record with a 4.50 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 62 innings. The 29-year-old will be a free agent this winter and it remains to be seen if Perez stays in Boston for another year.
Martin Perez pitched six scoreless innings giving up just three hits, walked one, and struck out seven batters and ended up with a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.
Perez has been effective for the Red Sox this season and has a 3.88 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 44 strikeouts in 58 innings. The 29-year-old lefty will make his final start of the year next week against the Orioles.
Martin Perez allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings as he earned the win Sunday against the Rays.
Perez is now 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA, 1.33 WHIP with a 37/26 K/BB ratio in 10 starts. The veteran starter will go for his fourth victory at home Saturday against the Yankees. Perez should be left on the bench in most leagues for that start.
Martin Perez didn't factor into the decision during a 6-5 loss to the Phillies in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader, giving up four runs on five hits and six walks over five innings. He struck out two.
Overall this season, Perez is 2-4 with a 4.40 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 31:24 K:BB through 47 innings. The 29-year-old lefty will face the Rays in his next outing Sunday in Tampa Bay. Perez is worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.
