    If the Reds do sign him is there a chance he'll be on the big league roster next year instead of Nix?

    Reds have officially signed Felix Perez.

    From Mark Sheldon:

    Cuban OF signed by Reds

    The Reds announced the signing of Cuban outfielder Felix Perez on Monday.

    Perez is 25 and bats and throws left-handed. See the post from last night for his background

    There is a conference call coming in a few minutes and I have something soon.

    Perez is 25. #Reds got him for $550,000. A 5-tool player. BBavasi: "He's a baseball rat. He loves to play." Will start in A, move to AA.

    That may be too soon. If he doesn't start with a team within the next few days, I wouldn't expect to see him with a minor league team until Early-Mid June.

    If he's a five tool player and a baseball rat, that sounds like a good thing to me. I understand he's older, but better late than never.

    He better move quick. If he's not MLB caliber by age 26 or so, he's not MLB caliber.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Using that in this situation isn't very smart, IMO. If he had spent 4 years at a college, and then 4 years in the minors, sure. However using that rule of thumb here doens't really work.

    From John Fay's blog:

    Perez will be go to Arizona as soon as he gets his visa. The Reds will evaluate him there.

    “He may end up at Dayton or Lynchburg,” Bavasi said. “But because of his age, he needs to get to Double-A quickly.”

    It's not that he will have proven that he just isn't good enough. It's that the physical abilities which allow people to be good ballplayers start to decline earlier than many people think. The late 20's is the nexus of physical ability and skill/approach development. That's no different for a guy who's been playing elsewhere.

    If he can't get his skills to MLB caliber soon, his physical decline beginning in his late 20's will begin to offset any further gains he makes. I'm not saying he needs to reach his potential by 26 or 27. But he needs to be at a level where he can compete. If not, there will just be too much more ground to make up and not enough time to do it before he starts losing the athleticism.
