The Phillies have designated 33-year old lefty reliever Juan Perez for assignment. Perez pitched in 8 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this year and he was 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. He has now pitched in 32 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 1-1 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. The Phillies shouldn’t miss him too much going forward.
UPDATE: (9/26/2011) – Juan Perez has accepted a outright assignment to AAA from the Phillies.
