Martin Perez set for Tommy John surgery Monday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) 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. 


Martin Perez expects to undergo season-ending surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) 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.

Texas realigns rotation heading into Houston series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) The Rangers are delaying starting pitcher Colby Lewis' return to the rotation by a few days, so the team realigned its rotation plans for a weekend series vs. Houston.

Yu Darvish will start the series opener Friday, and he will be followed by Tanner Scheppers Saturday and Martin Perez Sunday. 

The delay in Lewis' return doesn't have to do with his surgically repaired hip. The Rangers are waiting to see if third baseman Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) will need a trip to the disabled list. If Beltre goes on the DL, then the team will have a roster spot for Lewis. If he doesn't, then the Rangers will have to make another move to get him on the roster.

Therefore, Lewis and Robbie Ross are expected to start the first two games of the Seattle series, which starts Monday. The alignment depends on when the Rangers decide to make a roster move.


Martin Perez picks up first win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez earned his first win of the season Tuesday after giving up four earned runs on eight hits and threee walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 10-7 win over the Red Sox.

Perez (1-0) pitched much better in his season debut and didn't factor into the decision, but the offense picked him up Tuesday, staking him to an 8-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. He gave up three singles in the seventh inning before being replaced, and all three runs would eventually score. Perez takes a 4.50 ERA and 10:3 K:BB ratio into his next start, which should come Monday against the Mariners.


Martin Perez strikes out seven in debut Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Rangers pitcher Martin Perez didn't factor into the decision in his season debut Tuesday after giving up two earned runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Perez dealt with command issues this spring, posting an 8:8 K:BB ratio along with a 6.23 ERA in 13 innings. He was able to shrug it off and post a fine line in his 2014 debut. Perez's next start is up in the air as ace Yu Darvish could return Sunday and cause the team to shuffle the rotation.


Tanner Scheppers to make first start - on opening day


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) A right-hander who has never started a major league game will do so for the Rangers next Monday. Tanner Scheppers has earned the nod practically by default.

A back injury that knocked Yu Darvish out for the beginning of the season motivated Ron Washington to give the start to Scheppers, who will try to keep up with Phillies ace Cliff Lee.

Scheppers will be followed in the rotation by Martin Perez, Robbie Ross and Joe Saunders with the fifth starter yet to be determined.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Catcher J.P. Arencibia came away impressed with the young pitcher after catching him during an intrasquad game. "He's got some crazy stuff," Arencibia said. "He's got some real, real good stuff." But the superlatives didn't stop there. "He's definitely got some of the best stuff I've ever caught," Arencibia concluded. 

Pitcher Mike Maddux added that he feels good about Perez's cutter. The two worked on the pitch last season, but didn't feel comfortable throwing it during games. Maddux said Perez would experiment with the offering during spring camp.

Martin Perez working on a cutter


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

"In the past, I tried it and if it wasn’t good, I’d throw it out," Perez said. "But now I’ve got more confidence. I can throw it and I feel great."

Perez added that he worked on training his core muscles during the offseason. He was limited early last year due to a broken forearm.

In 124 1/3 innings, Perez posted a 3.62 ERA last season.


Martin Perez OK with raised expectations


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I like when I’ve got a lot of expectations because I think everyone is looking to me and it means I’m doing better," Perez said, per ESPN. "I don’t have pressure now. I have more experience and (I) just have to work hard and do my job."

After going 10-6 with a 3.62 ERA in 20 starts last season, Perez said he wants to throw "more strikes after two outs." He added he also wants to get more out of his curveball in 2014.

"I need to make my pitches and throw strikes," Perez said. "I want to give my team a chance to win."
