Eury Perez delivered a go-ahead two-run single in the eighth inning as part of a 4-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

After Pedro Strop walked Andrelton Simmons to load the bases, Perez hit a bloop shot to shallow right field to bring home two runs. The 25-year-old came into Friday's action with just one RBI over his previous 22 games this season.

Eury Perez went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Perez played a nice game hitting out of the two-hole, but his teammates were unable to take advantage of his near-constant presence on base. The light-hitting outfielder is currently hitting a light .286/.344/.321 over 56 at-bats. When your slugging is lower than your OBP, you know you're probably a singles hitter.

Eury Perez (torso) lined out as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

Perez was injured Sunday when he collided with Cameron Maybin in left field, but he escaped a major ailment. He'll be fine.
Jul 1 - 8:44 AM

Eury Perez left Sunday's game against the Pirates after colliding with Cameron Maybin in left field.

Both players were going after a fly ball hit by Jordy Mercer in the ninth inning. After staying on the ground for several minutes, Perez was replaced by Joey Terdoslavich. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Perez injured his torso but his head is fine. Maybin didn't suffer an injury and stayed in the game. Perez is day-to-day.

Braves recalled OF Eury Perez from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Perez has hit .296/.370/.376 with one home run and 28 stolen bases in 60 games this season at the Triple-A level. He has intriguing speed, but the 25-year-old probably won't play enough to carry fantasy relevance.

Braves optioned OF Eury Perez to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Perez had a chance to win the center field job while Melvin Upton (foot) was out, but it appears Eric Young has topped him. The speedy outfielder will give the Braves depth in the minors.
Mar 27 - 9:22 AM

Eury Perez doubled twice and walked Monday as the Braves played an Astros split-squad to a 2-2 tie.

Perez is better defensively than Eric Young Jr. and he's having the better spring of the two thus far, yet Braves writers are seemingly pretty confident that Young will be in center field to begin the season. That's seemingly because Young is a "proven leadoff hitter," and Perez has just 23 major league at-bats to his credit.

Eury Perez went 2-for-3 as the Braves' No. 9 hitter against the Astros on Sunday.

Perez is competing with Eric Young Jr., Todd Cunningham and Zoilo Almonte for the center field job in Melvin Upton Jr.'s absence. He's the best defender in the group, and while he doesn't offer any power at all, he could get on base just enough to be a tolerable stopgap.
Mar 8 - 5:31 PM's Mark Bowman believes Eury Perez is the early favorite to be the Braves' Opening Day center field following Melvin Upton's (foot) injury.

It makes sense, as Eric Young and Zoilo Almonte are both better suited for the corner outfield and Perez is likely a better option than Todd Cunningham. Perez has just 23 plate appearances in the majors but is a career .305/.360/.384 hitter in the minors and has put up gaudy stolen base totals. His speed could give him some fantasy value if he finds his way into the lineup.
Feb 27 - 5:59 PM

Braves claimed OF Eury Perez off waivers from the Yankees.

It's a good landing spot for the 24-year-old, as the Braves are lacking outfield depth following the trades of Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and Evan Gattis. Perez is a career .305/.360/.384 hitter in the minors and has plenty of speed. He should crack the Opening Day roster as a backup.
Jan 23 - 4:06 PM

Yankees designated OF Eury Perez for assignment.

Perez was claimed off waivers from the Nationals at the tail-end of last season. The speedy outfielder has limited experience in the majors but is a career .305/.360/.384 hitter in the minors. The 24-year-old could draw interest on waivers.
Jan 16 - 10:42 AM

Yankees claimed OF Eury Perez off waivers from the Nationals.

Perez was designated for assignment by the Nats last week. He has a promising .310/.354/.411 slash line with 63 stolen bases in 193 career games at Triple-A, so the 24-year-old is worth a shot for the Yanks.

Nationals designated OF Eury Perez for assignment.

Perez has a decent .310/.354/.411 batting line with 63 stolen bases in 193 career games at Triple-A. The 24-year-old outfielder should draw interest on waivers.
Thu, Sep 18, 2014 02:02:00 PM

Nationals activated OF Eury Perez from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Perez's fractured left toe has healed, but he'll remain at Syracuse instead of joining the big club. The speedy outfielder hasn't appeared in the majors this season.
