Neifi Perez Looks to Prove Jim Leyland Wrong

While the Gary Sheffield trade should go down as a good one, the Neifi Perez trade probably won’t  I know the Tigers didn’t give up much for him, but having him around and potentially taking away at bats from a guy like Omar Infante is a bad thing.  Now Neifi Perez is looking to prove his worth in camp after Jim Leyland made some negative comments about him during the offseason.

I’m sure Perez is a nice guy and at one point in time, he showed enough with the mitt to earn a gold glove.  Those days are pretty far behind us though.  PECOTA has Perez at a .246/.273/.339 line with a -3.3 VORP and average defense.  That’s not going to cut it for a team that’s a contender.

I don’t believe that Perez will be able to “prove his worth.” He’s on the way out…

I just started a secondary blog that’s all about the Tigers and baseball. Any interest in exchanging links? You can check it out here – http://tigersandthedreamweaver.blogspot.com/
