  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Struggles in no-decision

    Perez did not factor into the decision Friday against the Phillies, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out four.

    Perez was spared the loss after Pittsburgh rallied for a walk-off win, though it's been a tough go for the left-hander of late -- he has allowed 18 runs in 19.2 innings across his last four outings. Overall, he's 1-5 on the year with a 5.61 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 61:27 K:BB across 15 starts (77 innings). Perez will look to get back on track in his next outing, currently lined up for next week at home against St. Louis.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: No match for Brewers

    Perez (1-5) allowed five runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Perez gave up two runs in the first inning, and his start was punctuated by a Rhys Hoskins solo home run in the fifth. Consistency has been an issue for Perez since he returned from a groin injury -- he's given up 12 runs over 16 innings since his return, though he's allowed just two homers over three starts in that span. The veteran southpaw is at a 5.15 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 57:25 K:BB through 73.1 innings over 14 starts this season.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Sharp in no-decision

    Perez pitched 7.1 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Thursday, allowing one unearned run on six hits while striking out two and walking one.

    Perez pitched into the seventh inning for the second time this season, but he's come away with a no-decision on both of those occasions. The 33-year-old lefty bounced back well Thursday after giving up six runs in his first start back from the injured list last week. Perez has fared much better at home this season with a 3.65 ERA in seven starts, compared to a 5.97 ERA in six road starts.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Surrenders six runs in loss

    Perez (1-4) took the loss Friday versus Atlanta, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings with four strikeouts.

    The 33-year-old veteran looked rusty in his return from the injured list after leaving a May 26 start -- coincidentally, also against Atlanta -- with a groin injury. Perez managed to last 92 pitches and found the strike zone with only 39.1 percent of them, down significantly from his previous season average of 54.8 percent. The Pittsburgh southpaw's ERA now stands at 5.28 across 61.1 innings. He looks to bounce back in his next start, currently scheduled to come against the Cardinals at home.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Officially activated

    Perez (groin) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list and will start Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Perez has been shelved since May 28 due to a strained left groin, and after making one rehab start he'll rejoin the big-league club. In his lone minor-league appearance, the southpaw threw 63 pitches, so he'll likely be on a pitch count Friday. Prior to the injury, Perez owned a 4.71 ERA across 57.1 innings with Pittsburgh.

  • Pirates' Martin Perez: Cleared to start Friday

    Perez (groin) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Friday in Atlanta, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The Pirates will push back Jared Jones' next turn through the rotation in order to make room for Perez, whose last outing before he landed on the IL in late May coincidentally came against Atlanta. Perez needed just one rehab start to convince the Pirates he was ready to rejoin the big club, as he allowed two runs (one earned) over five innings while tossing 65 pitches for Triple-A Indianapolis last weekend. Perez shouldn't face any major restrictions with his workload Friday.
