Perez, 25, is coming off a solid showing in the Venezuelan Winter League where he batted .342/.407/.591 with 12 doubles, seven home runs and 35 RBI in 149 at-bats.
Last season he played for the Independent League Kansas City T-Bones of the American Association.
Perez was initially signed by Minnesota as a non-drafted free agent in 2006, But after suffering one injury after another, including undergoing Tommy John surgery, he was eventually released by the Twins after the 2012 season.
Seems like a nice under the radar signing that could prove useful. I’m sure the deal included a Spring Training invite, although Eddy doesn’t mention it.
