  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Back in Oakland

    Perez re-signed Thursday with the Athletics on a minor-league contract.

    Just one day after he elected free agency upon being outrighted off Oakland's 40-man roster, Perez opted to stick with the organization on a new deal. The 26-year-old lefty made 17 appearances at the big-league level in 2023, logging a 5.94 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 16.2 innings.

  • Francisco Perez: Elects free agency

    Perez elected free agency Wednesday.

    The Athletics outrighted Perez to Triple-A Las Vegas after removing him from their 40-man roster, but the lefty had the right to refuse the assignment and become a free agent and has opted to do just that. Perez posted a 5.94 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP across 16.2 innings with Oakland in 2023.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Outrighted off roster

    Perez was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday.

    Perez has appeared in the majors in each of the last three seasons, though 2023 was his first with the Athletics. He posted a 5.94 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP across 16.2 innings with the team. Any other club can now claim Perez, and if he goes unclaimed, he should begin the season at Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Takes second loss in extras

    Perez (1-2) took the extra-inning loss against the Blue Jays on Monday, allowing three runs (two earned) on two hits over one-third of an inning.

    A day after securing his first major-league victory, Perez fell apart when asked to preserve a 3-3 tie upon entering in the 10th. The left-hander got into immediate trouble by surrendering an RBI double and a run-scoring single to Santiago Espinal and Cavan Biggio, respectively, and he was ultimately charged with an additional run after exiting. The stumble snapped the 26-year-old's season-high three-appearance scoreless streak and pushed his ERA back up to an ugly 6.75 across 10.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Gets first win Sunday

    Perez (1-1) got the win over the Angels on Sunday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he recorded a strikeout.

    Perez was able to prevent further damage upon entering in the seventh after Adrian Martinez had allowed a game-tying solo home run to Luis Rengifo, striking out Shohei Ohtani and inducing an inning-ending lineout from Brandon Drury. The southpaw was then rewarded with his first big-league win when the Athletics rallied for six runs in the home half of the frame and held on for the victory. Perez has now put together three straight scoreless appearances, a four-inning sample during which he's generated a 4:0 K:BB and lowered his ERA from 8.53 to 5.23.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Takes loss as opener

    Perez (0-1) took the loss as the opener against the Orioles on Friday, allowing three earned runs on four hits over one inning. He struck out one.

    Perez wasn't able to give Oakland more than one frame, as he surrendered an RBI single to Ryan Mountcastle and a run-scoring double to Cedric Mullins. The 26-year-old southpaw held the Nationals scoreless over 1.1 innings in his big-league debut last Saturday, but he's subsequently been dinged for runs in his last two outings.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Serving as opener Friday

    Perez will serve as the Athletics' opener Friday versus the Orioles, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Contract selected by Athletics

    Perez's contract was selected by Oakland on Saturday.

    The left-handed reliever has 15.1 innings of major-league experience, appearing briefly for Cleveland and Washington.

  • Athletics' Francisco Perez: Signs minor-league contract

    Perez signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Friday, Chris Hillburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

    Perez was released by the Nationals late in March. The left-handed reliever has pitched in the majors over the last two seasons and owns a career 5.87 ERA over 14 appearances with Cleveland and Washington. He provides some organizational depth and has a chance to help the Oakland bullpen before the end of the 2023 campaign.

  • Francisco Perez: Let go by Washington

    The Nationals released Perez on March 24.

    Perez attended big-league spring training with Washington as a non-roster invitee, but he ended up parting ways with the organization shortly after being reassigned to minor-league camp. The 25-year-old lefty appeared in 10 games with Washington in 2022, logging a 7.27 ERA and 2.54 WHIP across 8.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Francisco Perez: Sent to minors camp

    The Nationals reassigned Perez to minor-league camp Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Perez made 10 relief appearances at the big-league level for Washington in 2022 but did little to distinguish himself, logging a 7.27 ERA and 2.54 WHIP across 8.2 innings. He'll likely need to turn in quality results at Triple-A Rochester over an extended period to begin the 2023 campaign before the Nationals consider giving him another look in the majors.

  • Nationals' Francisco Perez: Back with Nats on MiLB pact

    Perez agreed Wednesday with the Nationals on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Perez elected free agency after being outrighted off the Nationals' 40-man roster in November, but upon exploring his options on the open market, he ultimately decided to return to the Washington organization. He'll get a chance to vie for a spot in Washington's Opening Day bullpen, but he's more realistically ticketed for Triple-A Rochester. He spent the majority of the 2022 campaign at Rochester, submitting a 4.82 ERA and 1.43 WHIP while punching out 61 batters over 46.2 innings.

  • Nationals' Francisco Perez: Summoned from minors

    The Nationals recalled Perez from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

    The arrival of Perez gives the Nationals a fresh arm out of the bullpen after Washington needed five relievers to cover all nine innings of Monday's 9-5 loss to Atlanta when starter Josiah Gray was scratched leading up to the contest. Perez has previously covered 5.1 innings in his six appearances out of the Washington bullpen this season, giving up three earned runs on six hits and six walks while striking out four.

    Perez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday.

    Perez owns a 3.27 ERA in a small sample of 11 major-league relief innings, though his 8:9 K:BB paints a very different picture of his performance. He's recorded a 2.51 ERA in 14.1 innings of relief for Rochester this season, a number he's paired with a far better 21:4 K:BB.

    Perez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.

    Perez joined the major-league roster as an extra man for Tuesday's doubleheader against Arizona, and he'll remain in the major-league bullpen after Sean Doolittle (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. He's made five relief appearances in Rochester this year and has struck out seven in five scoreless frames.
