Rangers | Martin Perez bad on the road

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:47:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez is 0-8 with a 4.82 ERA in 13 starts on the road since April of 2014. He's also struggling with his control, averaging 4.94 walks per nine innings, which is third highest in the American League. The Rangers are averaging just 2.28 runs per nine innings when Perez starts this year, too.

Fantasy Tip: The high totals of free passes won't endear him to any fantasy owners, as his WHIP is soaring at 1.33 right now. He's also striking out only 5.3 hitters per nine innings, so his upside is limited. Perez will be in a nice pitcher's park at O.co Coliseum this afternoon, but he remains a very shaky option today.

Rangers | Martin Perez solid in no-decision

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:25:08 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez allowed just four hits and three walks in five scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a no-decision Tuesday, May 3, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Perez lowered his ERA to 3.60. He has a decent 1.37 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 35 innings. Perez is a decent fantasy option in AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats, but don't expect a lot of strikeouts.

Rangers | Martin Perez earns first victory

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:56:37 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez allowed two earned runs, six hits and two walks over six innings in a win Wednesday, April 27, against the New York Yankees, his first victory of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has three quality starts in three home outings this season. He isn't a high strikeout pitcher, and he doesn't get a ton of run support for some reason. The Rangers have provided a total of 11 runs in his five starts so far this season.

Rangers | Martin Perez throwing a lot of strikes

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 14:17:36 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez is throwing 64.2% of his pitches (77 of 120) for strikes so far this spring in two minor league 'B' games.

Fantasy Tip: Perez was an afterthought last year after returning from Tommy John surgery in the second half. It's encouraging that he showed elite control upon his return, though, and a nice ground-ball profile. He doesn't strike out a ton, but this is an arm worth speculating on for the upside as a late-round dart throw in deep mixed leagues.

Rangers | Martin Perez tabbed for ALDS loss

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 04:23:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez lost Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Sunday, Oct. 11, as he dropped a 5-1 decision to the Toronto Blue Jays. Perez gave up four runs and six hits while pitching into the sixth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Granted, Perez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) surrendered only one big mistake, and that was Troy Tulowitzki's three-run homer. All in all, it wasn't a bad outing. Still, Perez doesn't carry as much weight as a pitcher like Cole Hamels does in FantasyScore circles, so be cautious.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out of ALDS Game 3 lineup

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 14:22:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Oct. 11, for Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers. C Dioner Navarro will bat seventh against Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has a higher batting average against the left, but 18 of Martin's 23 homers have come against right-handed pitching. Navarro ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a similar average (.278-3-5 against lefties), so he may be a decent option if you're trying to save some cap room.

Rangers | Martin Perez tabbed for Game 3

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:41:33 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez will start Game 3 of the division series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays had the highest OPS (.818) against left-handers this season, making Perez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) an extremely risky FantasyScore pick in the divisional round.

Rangers | Martin Perez has been good at home

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 09:21:28 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez has three straight wins in his last four starts at home with a 2.28 ERA in those starts. Perez allowed two unearned runs in six innings against the Houston Astros his last time out. He faces the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels have been pretty bad against lefties all season long but swung the bats better during a playoff push in September. There's still a lot on the line here, so Perez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a risk/reward play on FantasyScore tonight.

Rangers | Martin Perez to be skipped

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 19:40:47 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez will not make his next scheduled start Wednesday, Aug. 26, as the team tries to limit his innings.

Fantasy Tip: With Perez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) being skipped, check back to see who will fill in case there is some sleeper potential at FantasyScore for his replacement.
