He's simply not a very good pitcher. Tony gets obsessed on even mediocre guys, so he could be given the opportunities. But, he's going to hurt you in other ways.
I wouldn't put Perez on any reliable depth chart right now with his shoulder problem.
I'd also put Kinney ahead of McClellan based mostly on their springs but also based on Kinney's performance when he was healthy.
Thanks. I originally typed "behind at least 4 guys..." then braincramped and could not think who else was there. Conceivablry, one or two of the 36 LOOGYs Tony insisted on inviting to camp might also be in the mix.
And don't forget the random Carpenter-as-a-closer rumor...
