Michael Perez has an attractive profile as a lefthanded-hitting backstop with a plus arm. He's relatively new to catching, so his receiving skills are raw, and he doesn't have a lot of experience catching premium stuff. However, he has a short stroke and solid bat speed, and was the most likely Puerto Rico player to challenge Jorge Lopez and Gabriel Rosa for single-digit draft round consideration.
