OLIVER PEREZ RUMORS & GOSSIP

Oliver Perez, Somehow A Potential Bargain

Oliver Perez has had a pretty fascinating career path, and while I hardly need to bring you through his entire history, it’d be remiss to start an article about him without at least touching on his backstory briefly. Drafted by the Padres, he was shipped to Pittsburgh in the Brian Giles trade, where he put […]

Nationals have interest in Oliver Perez

Add another name to the list of left-handed relievers the Nationals are targeting.

Oliver Perez- Control Artist?

Fans of baseball, especially those of the New York Mets, know Ollie Perez can be a wee bit wild at times (to put it mildly).  However, in his first appearance of the season with the Mariners he threw only 9 pitches and all 9 were strikes.  Better yet, he retired 4 batters on those 9 pitches and struck out 1 of them.  Perhaps we're looking at the next Greg Madduz-esque control...

Oliver Perez Re-Signs with the Mariners

Oliver Perez was once a highly-coveted pitcher.  Now, it seems he is gaining some of that shine again.  The Seattle Mariners re-signed the 31-year old to a one-year deal rather than let him hit free agency where he was likely to attract a lot of attention.  The Mariners seem confident in Perez now that he has gained some of his velocity back and appears to be less injury-prone...
