Hmm, maybe the Toronto "Ace" is a third starter, at best, on another team?

Dick or Justin mentioned that Perez looks a little like Johan Santana out there. I agree. He's throwing a lot of those cutter/sliders, using the arm motion to slow it down and speed it up. He's also flashed a curiously good change that sinks arm-side. He's also getting good power on his heater. This is a very dangerous combination of pitches. No wonder Perez is smiling a lot. Life is good right now for Martin Perez.

Hmm, interesting. He is dealing, but maybe take him out since we've got a cushion and not overwork him, have him well-positioned for his next start.

Just tuning in - not much better than seeing a 7-0 game. Perez is sure on a roll!

How was that a hit?

If it had nicked his glove it would have been an error, but it went under his glove so was it was a hit. Well.

after their off day on Thursday, they play 14 games in 13 days. With the 26th man for the double header, I’d rather keep the bullpen as fresh as possible.

But I would say that he has been consistently bad, therefore kind of good.

At the moment, Martin Perez is the most dominant pitcher in the rotation. To me, it looks like

Perez

Odorizzi

Berrios

Gibson

Pineda

in order of dominance.

Eddie Rosario is really good at tracking fly balls.
