Prospect Spotlight

The 23rd overall pick as a high schooler in 2016, Perez slid in the draft due to a failed PED test. He hasn’t hit as a pro and is at risk of falling off the prospect radar altogether, though he snuck onto the West Division roster in this year’s Midwest League All-Star Game. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound shortstop has an extremely athletic and twitchy build that could still get stronger. He’s best on defense and projects to remain at SS no matter how the body develops. Perez is a marginal prospect with first-round pedigree, with some chance to wind up in a bench role given his speed and defensive contributions.
