Anyways, my assumption is that something is wrong with him. Of course there is the possibility he could turn it around, I just don't see it happening soon unless he makes some major changes quickly.
Could not pitching in winter ball (he has done so every year up until this one because they didn't want him throwing out his arm) be what is wrong? Maybe he hasn't worked the rust off yet. But I admit, this walking business has to stop...even if it is something he has done all his career. I had him down for 23 BB in 30 IP, so that would be a 0.77 WIP (not WHIP, we're just talking walks per IP ). If it's 23 in 28, we're up to 0.82!

Perez is starting to turn into a one-dimensional fantasy producer, all in K's. Playing for the Pirates he's not going to pick up Wins, and he'll probably kill your WHIP for the remainder of the season even if he bounces back. So, you get a 12 win guy with a high WHIP and maybe an average ERA for the season? You have to know when to cut your guys, maybe trade him to a guy in your league who thinks he'll bounce back??
I avoided him in the 7 leagues I'm in just because I don't think he's ready to be a consistently good starter.. If you can't trade him, don't drop him though. He'll probably post a great month or two along with the crap, but don't forget he still plays for the Pirates. Not many wins coming his way.
