Doing some end of the year housekeeping on the transaction front and one thing we missed was the New York Yankees release minor league right-handed pitcher Elvin Perez last week according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America.
Perez signed as an International Free Agent in 2010 at 19 years old. He spent his first three seasons as a professional in the Dominican Summer League splitting time between the bullpen and rotation before making his United States debut in 2013 with the Gulf Coast Yankees. In 2014 he split the season between the Gulf Coast Yankees and the Staten Island Yankees.
Overall Perez holds a 7-17 record in the minors with a 3.45 ERA in 193 innings. He struck out a 154 batters and walked 61. He started 25 games out of the 68 games he appeared in.
