Scouting Report

Perez has a lot of tools in his toolbox and his hit tool is his most impressive. He has a smooth, compact stroke with good natural lift. He also has a strong throwing arm and the hands to remain at third base. His extension stands out at the plate as well, and it allows him to drive the ball to left center field with authority in game action. This is a hitter who should make consistent contact against professional pitching.
