Talked to a scout about Oliver Perez. Asked him if he thought if CC Sabathia continued to get ripped that Perez might become the top dog in the free agent market next winter.
“No,’’ he said. “He’s still Oliver Perez. He’s never going to me more than a No. 3 pitcher.’’
There’s no denying his stuff, but there’s also no disputing his reputation for being inconsistent.
Perez is 1-3 with a 4.28 ERA lifetime against Philadelphia.
