Columbus couldn't continue their winning ways yesterday, as a bullpen implosion doomed a solid start. Akron hung on to win another close one despite a late scare. Kinston didn't waste their own outstanding starting pitching, and got a career offensive day from an unlikely contributor. Lake County ended up splitting their doubleheader after getting shutout in game one of the twinbill. As always, the positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday's game.
Roberto Perez, C-KIN: 4-4, RBI, R
Perez hasn’t had many days at the dish like this his entire career. An elite defensive catcher, Perez hasn’t been much of a hitter, posting a career line of .239/.373/.351. He has good plate discipline and above-average raw power, but has had some problems putting the bat on the ball. All that was forgotten yesterday, as his four hits brought his season line up to .210/.373/.270. Perez is an exceptional catch and throw guy who consistently gets the ball to 2nd base in less than 1.90 seconds, which is outstanding. The bat will probably never get to the point where he’s more than a backup in the majors, but his defense could give him a long, well-paying career in The Show someday. It’s no secret that Perez is one of my favorite players in the org, and seeing him with a day like this really gets me excited.
