Martin Perez set for Tommy John surgery Monday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/14) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez will undergo Tommy John surgery Monday, the team announced.
Perez was diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his elbow this week, and could have tried to rehab the injury instead of going under the knife. He has instead opted to have the surgery now, giving him a better chance of returning with a chance to pitch next season. The typical recovery time for Tommy John surgery is 12 to 18 months.
|Baseball America ranked Martin Perez among its top 100 prospects for five straight seasons, from 2009 to 2013, even though his minor-league numbers for most of that stretch were nothing short of awful. We're talking ERAs over 5.00, WHIPs over 1.60 -- really ugly stuff. Actually, that's probably the worst way to describe it. "Stuff" is what gave Perez so much leeway during those awful years, and in 2013, he finally learned to harness it, dramatically improving his efficiency by cutting his walk rate in half. It began with a 1.75 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in six starts at Triple-A Round Rock -- the same place where he had a 4.25 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 2012 -- and continued once he became a regular part of the big-league rotation in late June. It's like he realized he wasn't going to strike out everybody anyway, so he stopped trying. His final numbers weren't as impressive as Tony Cingrani's, Gerrit Cole's or Michael Wacha's, but they were what you might call Derek Holland-caliber -- particularly in his final 12 starts, when he went 7-3 with a 3.19 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 6.4 strikeouts per nine innings. And considering he's just now entering his age-23 season, he still has plenty of time to develop into much, much more. For a late-round pick, he's all upside.
