Player Outlook
Wenceel Perez made it to the Triple-A level for the first time in 2023 and showed some promise, recording an .890 OPS over 35 games for Toledo. The 24-year-old also flashed some speed, tallying 26 stolen bases in 113 total games across three levels. All of that came on the heels of an impressive 2022 campaign, which saw Perez record a .295/.369/.534 slash line with 14 home runs and 18 stolen bases between High- and Double-A. He dipped to only nine home runs last year, but Perez could carve out a role in the majors due to his batted ball skills and ability to steal bases. Another noteworthy development last year was Perez seeing playing time in the outfield after not appearing there in either of the previous two seasons. Because Perez can also play some middle infield, it seems like the organization is preparing him for more of a utility role. With mediocre options such as Zach McKinstry, Andy Ibanez and Nick Maton vying for that type of role with the Tigers, Perez could certainly force his way into the picture if he continues to play well in the minors.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reaches four times in rout

    Perez went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 11-2 win over the White Sox. While Perez wasn't one of the four Detroit players to go deep, he still had a big performance in the blowout win. The 24-year-old came into play batting just .188 over his last five games, but he's hitting .264 overall in what's been a solid rookie campaign so far. Perez should continue to see regular playing time for the Tigers, at least while Kerry Carpenter (back) is on the injured list, and that gives him some fantasy upside.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Takes seat Monday

    Perez is out of the lineup for Monday's contest in Atlanta. After starting each of the previous seven games, Perez will take a seat Monday as Atlanta goes with southpaw Max Fried on the mound. Matt Vierling will replace Perez in right field.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reaches four times in loss

    Perez went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Nationals. Perez was just 2-for-21 over his previous six contests, though he bookmarked either end of the cold stretch with three-hit games. The 24-year-old rookie is understandably going through some ups and downs, but it looks like he'll continue to see regular playing time for the Tigers, at least while Kerry Carpenter (back) is on the injured list.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Batting leadoff Sunday

    Perez is starting in right field and batting first in Sunday's game against the Brewers. Perez wasn't in the starting lineup Saturday, though he did appear as a pinch hitter, and he'll be back in there Sunday. The 24-year-old rookie is 0-for-12 across his last four games, which has lowered his batting average from .268 to .247. Despite the recent slump, Perez should continue to see semi-regular playing time moving forward, mixing in with Riley Greene, Matt Vierling and Akil Baddoo in Detroit's outfield.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Idle Saturday

    Perez isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday versus Milwaukee. Perez has gone 0-for-11 at the plate across his last three games, and the Tigers will now give him a chance to regroup. Justyn-Henry Malloy, Riley Greene and Akil Baddoo will start across the outfield while Perez sits.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Getting breather for series finale

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Triples twice, drives in four

    Perez went 2-for-4 with two triples, a run scored and four RBI in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Perez batted third and continued his strong start to the season, as he boosted his batting average to an even .300 and his OPS to .906. The versatile 24-year-old has settled in as the team's primary center fielder due to Parker Meadows being demoted to the minors. Perez should hold onto fantasy value as long as he's seeing regular playing time and swinging a hot bat.

    Perez (illness) is batting second and playing center field Tuesday against Cleveland. Perez had missed back-to-back games due to illness but will return to the lineup for Tuesday's action, replacing the now-demoted Parker Meadows in center field.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Smacks first career homer

    Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's 4-1 victory over the Royals. Perez' first career dinger came in the first inning off Kansas City starter Michael Wacha and represented what turned out to be the game-winning blast for the Tigers. The rookie outfielder has started four of the past five games for the Tigers and has found himself consistently toward the top of the lineup, hitting in the three hole for the third consecutive start. Through 35 at-bats, Perez has 10 hits, including one double, two triples and a home run with five RBI and four runs scored.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Doubles, swipes bag

    Perez went 2-for-3 with a double and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Twins in the second game of a doubleheader. Perez reached on an infield single in his first at-bat and stole second but was left stranded. He also reached second base in the bottom of the seventh, this time on a two-out double, but was again left hanging as Detroit's offense struggled to get anything going on the night. The two hits were the first of the season for the second baseman, though he also drew a walk and scored in the first game of the doubleheader.

  • Tigers' Wenceel Perez: Reinstated, moved to Double-A

    Perez (back) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Friday and transferred from Triple-A Toledo to Double-A Erie, Emily Waldon of Baseball America reports. Perez has had very little trouble against minor-league pitching in his career thus far, slashing .307/.374/.533 over 171 plate appearances in Double-A last season. If he can carry that success into 2023, there's a good chance he makes his Triple-A debut at some point this summer.
