While the media paid plenty of attention to Santana last week, no one seemed to care about a teammate who had his own impressive throwing session. The player?
1) Perez claims he's "really happy" since he no longer feels any pain in his right knee, following a September procedure that removed scar tissue.
2) At the Mets request, Perez underwent intensive training in Arizona in order to be ready for 2010.
3) Pitching coach
Now keep in mind, the only way he's ending up on a roster of mine is if he's the very last pick. He's burned this bridge too many times, leaving it held up by toothpicks and glue at this point. That being said, lefties can take a ridiculously long time to find themselves as pitchers, so it wouldn't be completely out of the ordinary if Perez were to turn his career around at age 28. Besides, if Perez gets crushed for six runs in two innings in his first start, it will be easy to cut him since you would have drafted him so late.
