Cuban Perez fitting in with Hillcats
By Chris Lang


Sunday, Perez showed the sort of hustle that piqued the Reds’ interest. Perez doubled in his first two at-bats, and both times he ran hard to stretch singles into extra-base hits. He stole a base and drove in a run. Plugged into the No. 3 spot in Lynchburg’s lineup, Perez immediately produced.

“I like to play aggressive and attack,” Perez said through Soto. “I want the fans to feel good watching the game.”

Perez played well in the DSL, hitting .429 in 16 games with a home run and 14 RBIs. At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Perez has a solid blend of speed and gap power. And the Hillcats have been playing with just two true outfielders for some time, so his defensive skills in center field are a major plus.

“He seems to get good jumps and read the ball of the bat very well,” Hillcats manager Pat Kelly said. “He runs a little bit better than you think because he kind of glides. (The Reds) were pleased with the way he played defensively.

So given that he's 24, what does his timetable look like?

I figure he will probably reach AA at some point this year and find himself in AAA to start next year.

I believe he's 25, actually. He'll turn 26 in November.

Agree. Question is- who plays CF in Louisville next year, Perez or Sappelt? Any word on who is better defensively?

He can cover CF, but he isn't a guy you are going to play there with Stubbs, Sappelt or Perez.

He sounds a lot like the next Chris Heisey.
