Oliver Perez Shelled Again in Mexico

Last night, for Los Tomateros de Culiacan, Oliver Perez allowed six runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings, taking the loss in a 15-8 defeat to Los Algodoneros de Guasave.

Perez’s ERA this winter is now 5.73, allowing 14 runs on 22 hits and 14 walks in 22 innings.

I’d hate to say this, but even if the numbers were better, I’m not sure I could trust them. I don’t see how Perez will be capable to contribute at any level of the Mets organization at this point. I keep hoping he will have consistent, solid outings, and the stuff will be there, but it is isn’t and it doesn’t appear it ever will be again.
