Rangers SP Martin Perez gets roughed up for eight runs in loss
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(12:04 am ET) Rangers starter Martin Perez had a nightmare of an outing against the Yankees on Tuesday. Staked to 5-0 lead after the first inning, Perez gave up eight runs on seven hits as part of an 11-run onslaught in the second inning. The Yankees would go on to demolish the Rangers 21-5.
Perez (0-2) pitched a scoreless first inning, but was unable to record a single out in the second. This was the left-hander's third start of the season, in what was the shortest start of his career. The eight runs allowed matches a career-high.
Perez came into the game with a 4.91 ERA through his first two outings. After Tuesday's disaster, that number sits at 10.50.
Rangers SP Martin Perez falters in fourth for no-decision
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Rangers southpaw Martin Perez wasn't exactly lights-out Wednesday in Colorado, but he certainly appeared destined for his first victory since after recovering from Tommy John surgery. Then his bullpen blew it.
Perez allowed three earned runs on six hits in six innings with four walks and two strikeouts. He has issued six free passes in 12 innings over two starts.
He nearly let a 5-0 lead to slip away against the Rockies. A Nick Hundley single in the second inning began to taint his performance before three singles and an error in the fourth cut his lead to 5-4. He retired the last seven batters he faced.

Rangers SP Martin Perez activated from 60-day disabled list
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/17/15) The Rangers have activated starting pitcher Martin Perez from the 60-day disabled list on Friday, the team announced.
Perez is expected to make his 2015 debut on Friday against the Astros, just 14 months after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Rangers SP Martin Perez returning to rotation Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/13/15) The Rangers have announced that left-hander Martin Perez, who has been sidelined for 14 months following Tommy John surgery, is scheduled to make his 2015 debut Friday in Houston.
Perez struggled in six minor league appearances, allowing 34 hits in 25 2/3 innings and compiling a 4.56 ERA. But he only walked three.
His return to the rotation means Colby Lewis will start Saturday and Yovani Gallardo on Sunday.
|2014 summary: Martin Perez looked like he was on the verge of a breakthrough at the start of 2014, going 4-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in his first five starts. But three ugly starts later, the world would learn he needed Tommy John surgery. He missed the rest of the season.|
Playing time status: You should know the deal with Tommy John surgery by now. When a pitcher has it, he's going to miss at least a year and maybe a year and a half, so you shouldn't expect to see Perez before midseason.
2015 outlook: Perez has an impressive pedigree and perhaps a bright future, but his hot start last year may have been smoke and mirrors given his so-so-strikeout and walk rates. Considering the uncertain timetable for his recovery, he's just a low-end AL-only option.
