Focus Area
Comments
Hitting ability:Perez has a balanced, short and quick stroke. Though the right is his natural side, he's actually better from the left side.
Power:He has some ability to hit with power to the pull side from both sides of the plate.
Running speed:He has below-average speed.
Base running:His speed plays better at game time because of plus instincts on the bases.
Arm strength:He has a solid-average to plus throwing arm.
Fielding:He can make the play in the hole and up the middle. His hands are soft and sure.
Range:He makes up for lack of foot speed with instincts and positioning.
Physical Description:Perez has a small frame, a lean muscular middle infielder kind of like a Cesar Izturis type.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:A great feel for the game, off the charts makeup. Makes the most of his abilities on both sides of the ball.
Weaknesses:His lack of speed.
Summary:Perez is a baseball rat with a great feel for the game. His plus instincts help him maximize his skills, which include some definite hitting ability from both sides of the plate, a solid glove and arm from shortstop. He doesn't have the kind of speed you'd normally like to see from a middle infielder, but he makes up for that with those instincts. Whoever drafts him could be getting a high schooler with a better understanding of how to play the game than most prepsters.
