Rangers | Martin Perez wins again

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 17:24:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez won his sixth straight decision, allowing one run on six hits while walking two and striking out two over six innings against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has a respectable 3.44 ERA, but his poor strikeout totals limit his value to AL-only formats.

Rangers | Martin Perez earns sixth win

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:29:10 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez improved to 6-4 on the year after winning his start Tuesday, June 14, against the Oakland Athletics. The southpaw worked seven efficient innings, yielding four runs on nine hits. He also struck out two and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: Just another solid start for the 25-year-old, as he's now gone at least six innings in each of his last eight outings, six of which have clocked in as quality starts. Perez can be a sneaky add for teams in most leagues, as he's been very steady this year, plus he pitches for one of the best teams in the American League. He definitely has value to take advantage of if he's on your waiver wire.

Rangers | Another quality start for Martin Perez

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 15:17:24 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez registered his fourth consecutive quality start Thursday, June 9, in a victory over the Houston Astros. The left-hander tossed six innings of two-run ball, yielding four hits, four walks, and striking out two.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has probably been one of the more underrated starting pitchers in fantasy this season, as he's now 5-4 with a relatively impressive 3.22 ERA. Furthermore, he's been consistent, as he's now gone at least five innings in all 13 of his starts, while surrendering three runs or less in all but two of them. He's exhibited plenty of potential that he can stick on fantasy rosters for the long haul.

Rangers | Martin Perez wins with six strikeouts

Wed, 25 May 2016 00:28:01 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez had six strikeouts in six innings of work Tuesday, May 24, in a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Perez dropped his earned run average from 2.59 to 2.08. Perez had not won in May prior to this victory.

Fantasy Tip: Perez is a much better pitcher than his record and stats indicate. With an ERA just above 2.00 and decent strikeout totals, Perez should have wins under his belt. He is worth the gamble in DFS, weekly and annual leagues despite his 2-4 record, mainly because Perez's pitching is a lot better than the numbers say.

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.
