Perez Out For Rest of 2018 After Surgery

Multiple sources confirmed on Friday afternoon that pitcher Freicer Perez underwent surgery on Thursday in New York to clean up bone spurs in his right shoulder.  He will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

Pinstriped Prospect ranked Perez as the 12th best prospect in the system before the beginning of the 2018 season.

The 22-year old Perez has been on the disabled list for High-A Tampa since May 9 with shoulder inflammation. In six starts for the Tarpons, Perez had struggled to the tune of a 0-4 record, and 7.20 ERA with 20 strikeouts in 25 innings pitched.

The imposing 6’8″, 240-pound Perez went 10-3 with a 2.84 ERA in 24 starts for Low-A Charleston in his first full-season for Low-A Charleston in 2017.  Overall he has a career 19-14 record with a 3.66 ERA in 58 games across four levels.

Typically it takes approximately six weeks before a player can start a throwing program after undergoing surgery which means he will not be able to return to game action until after the season ends.  It is possible he could pitch in instructs or in one of the off-season leagues.
