Orioles RP Chris Perez retires from baseball


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Right-handed reliever Chris Perez has retired from baseball. Perez had been serving a 50-game suspension for violating MLB's Drug Prevention Act.

Perez began the year pitching in the Brewers' organization, posting a 9.39 ERA in six relief appearances for Triple-A Colorado Springs. He was released and signed a minor-league deal with the Orioles at the beginning of July, but never made an appearance due to his ban. Though, he had been working out at the Orioles' training complex in Sarasota, Fla, according to MASNSports.com.

The two-time All-Star, who saved 123 games for the Indians between 2010-2013, has not thrown a big-league pitch since 2014 when he made 49 appearances with the Dodgers. 


Orioles sign Chris Perez to minor-league deal

(7/2/2015) The Orioles signed relief pitcher Chris Perez to a Triple-A deal on Thursday, per masnsports.com.

Perez will have to serve a 50-game suspension for his second drug abuse offense before he can play a game in the minors. 

"That doesn't affect us right now, obviously for 50 games. There are games played after August," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

"We all make some changes in our lives and get better."

Perez was an All-Star with the Indians in 2011 and 2012 and he recorded 75 total saves over that span.

Brewers pitcher Chris Perez leaves game Sunday with ankle sprain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Brewers pitcher Chris Perez left Sunday's game after recording just one out with a right ankle sprain, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Although it appears to be a slight sprain, Perez is competing with Michael Blazek, Tyler Thornburg and Rob Wooten for the final two spots in the bullpen and could make this injury the deciding factor.

"They did (struggle)," said manager Ron Roenicke. "But it's one outing. We're not concerned with that. We still have seen enough of guys that we have a pretty good idea. We’ll probably make a decision here in a couple days on a couple of them, and then we’ll see."


Brewers' Chris Perez will know his future by Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Brewers veteran reliever Chris Perez will know his fate by next Wednesday. The club will decide if he will be added to the club's 40-man roster, assigned to Triple-A, or released, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Perez signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to major-league camp with the Brewers in early February. He is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA over 5 1/3 innings this spring.

"This year has been a little different because I don't have a spot," Perez said. "I'm still taking the same approach. Regardless, I have to get ready for the season. It doesn't matter where it's at.

"Each time out, I’m feeling a little better, a little sharper, a little crisper. Spring training is weird. (Tuesday) was probably the worst I've felt playing catch in the morning. I was a little stiff after the off day (Monday). But it was a hot day, which is good, and I threw the ball OK. I was ahead (in the count) more. The goal is to improve every time out."
