His numbers aren’t eye-popping but the fact he played regularly getting
450 AB’s and hitting .260 or so seems like a big step forward when
compared to his first two years. Still a long way to go but playing
everyday is an encouraging sign.
After four years in the system, Perez’ clock is ticking more loudly. He is just one year away from Rule 5 eligibility. He seems a long way from earning a 40-man spot, but probably also a long way from being taken by another organization (assuming he is protected on Memphis’ 2020 Rule 5 roster). I guess this could be a partial justification to push him ahead.
P.S. The Cards often say that Double-A is the level at which they expect players to progress from potential to performance.
