JUAN PEREZ RUMORS & GOSSIP
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Having left Kansas City to sign with San Francisco, Nori Aoki walked up to new teammate Juan Perez in the Giants spring training clubhouse and offered a cheerful greeting.
''Nice catch in the World Series,'' Aoki told him.
If not for Perez playing shallow and closer to the foul line than he typically would, Game 7 and the title might have gone differently...

The San Francisco Giants are starting Juan Perez over Travis Ishikawa in left field for Game 7 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals.
Ishikawa is primarily a first baseman and made eight outfield appearances during the regular season. He is a better hitter than Perez, but Perez is a better defender.
Perez also started in Game 4 at AT&T Park. He is 3 for 9 in the...

On Sunday, the Giants and the Royals played Game 5 of the World Series, and an unusual thing happened. We’ll get to that. On Saturday, the same teams played Game 4, and in the bottom of the fourth inning, Yusmeiro Petit batted for some reason against Jason Vargas. Petit swung at the first pitch, maybe […]
The baseball world is vast and diverse, but there are nights when it feels small. Sunday was one of them.
In the expectant moments before Game 5 of the World Series at AT&T Park, it seemed as though the entire baseball community had gathered at the same magnificent address: Third and King in San Francisco, where a pair of aces warmed up along the base lines, vivid oranges and...

Yeah, the Giants still tied the game on this lineout by Juan Perez – but Jarrod Dyson ensured that they wouldn’t get more than just the one run on the play.

Talk about absurd. I wonder if Lorenzo Cain makes that catch if he’s starting in center and not right tonight.
Outfielders are taught in Little League to catch a baseball with two hands. San Francisco Giants outfielder Juan Perez didn’t adhere to that advice on Monday afternoon.
Perez was stationed in left field during San Francisco’s game against the New York Mets at Citi Field. Like many outfielders, Perez wears his sunglasses on top of his hat — not on his face. That move almost...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Michael Morse and Juan Perez homered with two outs in the sixth inning on Wednesday night, rallying the San Francisco Giants to a 3-2 victory that ended the Cincinnati Reds' longest winning streak of the season at four games.
San Francisco won for the 10th time in 13 games, improving the best record in the majors to 38-21.
Morse hit a solo shot and Perez had a...
