  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Big effort Friday

    Perez went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 5-4 win over the Twins. He also stole a base.

    Perez batted second, which he's done in each of his last two starts, and responded with a strong game. The 24-year-old is still in a reserve role for the Tigers, though he's been playing well in his MLB debut, posting a .313/.353/.500 slash line across 16 at-bats. If Perez is able to earn more playing time at some point, his fantasy value would trend upward.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Doubles, swipes bag

    Perez went 2-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Twins in the second game of a doubleheader.

    Perez reached on an infield single in his first at-bat and stole second but was left stranded. He also reached second base in the bottom of the seventh, this time on a two-out double, but was again left hanging as Detroit's offense struggled to get anything going on the night. The two hits were the first of the season for the second baseman, though he also drew a walk and scored in the first game of the doubleheader.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reinstated, moved to Double-A

    Perez (back) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Friday and transferred from Triple-A Toledo to Double-A Erie, Emily Waldon of Baseball America reports.

    Perez has had very little trouble against minor-league pitching in his career thus far, slashing .307/.374/.533 over 171 plate appearances in Double-A last season. If he can carry that success into 2023, there's a good chance he makes his Triple-A debut at some point this summer.

    Perez opened the season on Triple-A Toledo's 7-day injured list while working his way back from back inflammation, but he looks like he could be on track to join the Tigers' top affiliate at some point during the upcoming week.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Sent to Triple-A

    Perez (back) was optioned to Triple-A Toledo by the Tigers on Friday.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Set for light baseball activities

    Perez (back) will begin light baseball activities this week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Recovering from back injury

    Perez will be limited to rehab work in the early stages of camp after experiencing some mild inflammation in his back during offseason workouts, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Perez will be part of the Tigers' big-league camp after he was added to the 40-man roster over the winter, but the switch-hitting infielder looks as though he could miss out on some action during the Grapefruit League slate while he continues to receive treatment and takes part in a core-stabilization program early in camp. Assuming he's made a full recovery from the injury before the start of the regular season, Perez will likely report to either Triple-A Toledo or Double-A Erie.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Hits Double-A injured list

    Double-A Erie placed Perez on its 7-day injured list Tuesday due to an unspecified issue.

    After a rough 2021 campaign, the 22-year-old switch-hitting Perez had re-established himself as one of the Tigers' better prospects by finding success at both High-A West Michigan and at the Double-A level. Since joining Erie in mid-June, Perez has produced a .307/.374/.533 slash line with 20 extra-base hits and a tidy 13.5 percent strikeout rate across 171 plate appearances.
