|Martin Perez moved to 60-day disabled list |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/14) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez has been moved to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.
Perez underwent Tommy John surgery earlier in the week, and is expected to miss the rest of the season. The club needed to make room on the 40-man roster, which is why Perez was transferred to the long-term DL.

(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.

(5/15/14) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez confirmed to The Dallas Morning News Thursday that he plans to have Tommy John surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his elbow.
Perez will meet with the Rangers' front office staff Friday, to finalize the plans, and he has a few possible options to consider. He could undergo a platelet-rich plasma injection and try to rehab the injury, but surgery still might be needed down the road, so it seems inevitable he will undergo surgery sooner rather than later.
“I don’t want to miss this year; I want to get out there and compete,” Perez said. “But I can’t just think about this year. If I do the other option, I might not get back or the ligament might get hurt again. If I have the surgery, at this time next year, I can be back and doing what I was doing before – helping the team.
|Martin Perez dealing with partial tear of UCL |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/14) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez was believed to have avoided a tear in his UCL after an MRI Monday, but after some of the inflammation in the elbow subsided, it revealed a partial tear of the UCL, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Perez and the team haven't decided on a course of recovery yet. One option is to rehab without surgery, with the hope that he'll be able to return in 10 to 12 weeks. The other option is Tommy John surgery, which would sidelined Perez for the remainder of the season and part of next season.
|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.
