Oliver Perez dealing with 'dead arm'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:33 pm ET) The Diamondbacks have shut down pitcher Oliver Perez indefinitely, as he experiences "dead arm," per the Arizona Republic. Perez lasted only one-third of an inning on Sunday, his last appearance. He owns a 2.86 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 56 2/3 innings of work. It remains to be seen if he'll pitch again this season.
