Perez has been sidelined for the past two seasons due to broken fingers, shoulder and hamstring injuries. Last year in 2021 he started just 44 games for the Cleveland Guardians and last year he only started 21 games for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Besides, his blows are also weak. After making his MLB debut in 2014 with Cleveland, his career batting average is only 0.207, on-base percentage is 0.298, and slugging percentage is only 0.360, giving him an OPS of only 0.658.
Nevertheless, Perez’s ability to survive in the MLB is due to his excellent defensive skills. He has only 24 errors while playing 501 games in nine seasons, and it is evaluated that he has a good rapport with pitchers. Perez won two Gold Glove Awards in 2019 and 2020.
San Francisco has a starting catcher named Joey Bart, so Perez is expected to be used as a backup catcher. Perez is expected to compete with Austin Winns as a backup.
