Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez (elbow) won't throw for four days after recovering from Tommy John surgery. The team has built in a four-day rest period for Perez after moving him from flat ground to a half-height mound for some of his pitches.
Fantasy Tip: Perez is hoping to return to the team sometime around the All-Star break after undergoing elbow ligament replacement surgery. Because starting pitchers often endure a lack of velocity and struggle with location upon returning from the procedure, Perez's fantasy value probably won't be at peak form until 2016. He may, however, be useful at FantasyScore and in AL-only leagues in spot starts in the second half of the season.
