Losing work to Zunino
CTampa Bay Rays
September 23, 2020
Perez went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Mets.
ANALYSIS
Though Perez returned to the lineup after a two-game absence, he'll likely see his starting opportunities dwindle during the remainder of the regular season and the Rays' subsequent playoff run. Mike Zunino (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list over the weekend and is slated to take over as the Rays' No. 1 catcher.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Perez joined the Rays in late July following a trade from Arizona, heading straight to the majors for his first big-league action and remaining there until a hamstring strain ended his season in late August. He didn't do anything particularly special with the bat, but his .284/.304/.392 line in 80 plate appearances was perfectly adequate for a backstop. He didn't project as anything more than a backup as a prospect, and he'll likely be fighting for that role with Nick Ciuffo this spring, with offseason acquisition Mike Zunino penciled in for the starting job. Perez's 3.8% walk rate is a cause for concern, though he walked 8.3% of the time for Triple-A Reno prior to the trade. Don't expect too much from the 26-year-old, but there's enough there for him to be a competent deep-league fill-in should he end up with a run of playing time.
