MLB Trade Lumus (MLBTR) said on December 22 (Korea Standard Time) that the Cincinnati Reds signed Hernan Perez.
Cincinnati recently signed a minor league contract with Perez. Then, it sent Perez to the Louisville Bats, a Triple-A team. It is not known whether the contract includes an invitation to the spring camp.
Venezuelan born 1991 utility player Perez is a 10-year major league veteran. He made his big league debut with the Detroit Tigers in 2012, and played for Detroit, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals.
His overall record in 10 seasons is 651 games .250/.280/.382 45 home runs, 180 RBIs and 69 steals. He spent a lot of time as a backup infielder, but he also played as a key fielder in Milwaukee during the 2016-2018 season. In the 2016-2017 season, he played an active part in 259 games, recording .266/.296/.421 27 home runs, 101 RBIs and 47 steals. His strength is his utility ability to play all field positions except for the catcher.
Perez also has ties with Korea. During the 2021 season, he signed with the Hanwha Eagles and temporarily joined the KBO League. At that time, Perez played 59 games with Hanwha and recorded .268/.321/.411 with five homers and 33 RBIs. 월카지노
