“Oliver Perez”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6945 gave up four runs on five hits with a walk and two strikeouts in two innings this afternoon against Detroit.
It certainly isn’t what the Mets were looking for from their projected fourth starter.
Perez blamed it on rusty mechanics: “I’ve been working to keep my shoulder in, but it was flying open.”
And no, Perez wasn’t throwing as hard as he can, but said his velocity will improve as the spring progresses. It had better.
