I probably wouldn't do that.

Santana is pretty hot right now, but when he isnt, his AVG should drop under Perez's average.
He is still an upgrade, don't get me wrong, but *that* much of an upgrade that I would give up CC for him.

Choo and Gordon are doing well now, but they will hit a colder stretch at some point, and I expect Crawford to outperform at least one of them over the full season. I'd keep him around if I were you. and if you insist on trading him now.. well, he is running, he is hitting and he is starting to look like the Crawford we saw in Tampa.

With only 10 catcher spots needed in your league I think I'd just play whatever hot hand was on the free agent list.

you're pretty sold at catcher. I would keep Crawford for the speed and in case someone gets hurt

I'm going to agree with everyone else here. If Perez can't turn it around, you should be able to find hot catchers on the WW.
