South Florida's closer, Perez has posted a 2.65 ERA in 34 innings this season and been seen regularly thanks to the presence of highly-touted lefthander Shane McClanahan. Perez is a talented southpaw in his own right, though he's definitely a relief arm whereas McClanahan only might be. The 6-foot-1, 217-pound lefty throws a fastball that has been up to 95 regularly towards the end of the season, sitting in the 93-94 mph range in one inning starts and dropping down to 91-92 if he throws multiple innings. Perez' breaking ball has also improved this spring, though it's still just an average, 75-81 mph hard slurve, though Perez dubs it a slider. Perez could go in the latter half of the top 10 rounds thanks to a strikeout rate that's been higher than 10 batters per nine innings each year in the American Athletic Conference and a significantly improved walk rate this spring.
