Astros add LHP Oliver Perez to roster

While the Astros still stand in first place in the AL West yet struggling to win on the road, the roster continues to be tweaked by General Manager Jeff Luhnow.

The Astros have acquired left-handed pitcher Oliver Perez from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for minor league left-handed pitcher Junior Garcia, General Manager Jeff Luhnow announced this evening.

Perez, who will pitch out of the bullpen, is scheduled to join the Astros in Oakland on Sunday for the finale with the Athletics.  Garcia, 19, had been with the Tri-City ValleyCats of the New York Penn League at the time of tonight’s deal. He began the season at Greeneville (Rookie Level).

To make room for Perez on the 40-man roster, the Astros have transferred right-handed pitcher Sam Deduno from the 15-day Disabled List to the 60-day DL.

Perez, 33, was 2-1 in 48 relief appearances for the D-backs in 2015 with a 3.10 ERA (10ER/29IP) while posting a .223 opponents batting average and 37 strikeouts in 29.0 innings pitched. Left-handed batters are hitting just .183 (11x60) off him this season. Over the past three seasons, Perez has tallied 187 K’s in 140.2 innings pitched.

Perez had been a starter for the first nine seasons of his Major League career (2002-10) before converting to full-time reliever in 2012. From 2012-15, he has posted a 3.06 ERA in 210 relief appearances with 211 strikeouts in 170.1 innings pitched.
