Prospect Spotlight

Perez had a lost year in 2018, though his size and flashes of dominant raw stuff are enough to place him on this list. He struggled through six starts in the Florida State League before missing the rest of the season with a right shoulder inflammation. Perez’ fastball touches the high-90s, with a power slider that’s his go-to secondary pitch. The 6-foot-8 righty has a high ceiling but a ton of risk. He’s a tough player to grade right now and likely moves to the ‘pen, in big need of a bounce back year heading into 2019.
