Oliver Perez: Pitcher You Want

Some time ago, in talking about the upcoming trade deadline, Dave offered Jesse Crain as a potential alternative to the potentially expensive Jonathan Papelbon. Relievers are always in demand around midseason, and Crain was proving himself to be a hell of a weapon. Shortly thereafter, Crain went and landed on the disabled list, and while his value wasn’t completely obliterated, it was dealt a blow and Crain is right now in the rehab process. He’s not the target he was, and he’s going to have to prove himself if he is to get moved.

I’m here now not to offer another alternative to Papelbon, but to just highlight a good reliever who’s available. In case you haven’t been paying attention, Oliver Perez has been pitching really well, and though he’s probably not reliable closer material, Perez throws hard with his left arm, and the things that used to plague him seem to be history. Perez is a lefty reliever on a bad team in his contract year, and if he gets traded — and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t — his new team should end up pleased as punch, whatever the hell that means.

It was last year that Perez re-emerged, stunningly, gaining velocity and throwing strikes out of the Mariners bullpen. But it wasn’t that Perez was amazing; it was that it was amazing that Perez was anywhere and pitching somewhat effectively. He was sort of like last year’s version of this year’s Scott Kazmir, in that he was forgotten until he came back and flashed big-league ability. Perez put himself on track to extend his career. But this season, Perez has stepped it up. This season, Oliver Perez is legitimately good.

For one thing, he’s still throwing in the low- to mid-90s. He’s among the league leaders in first-pitch-strike percentage. He’s among the league leaders in zone percentage. It’s almost inconceivable that Perez would develop into a reliable strike-thrower, but here we are, and this is our universe. A few years ago, Perez threw strikes like he thought strikes were balls. Now he has the same strike rate as CC Sabathia. This is a sport that we try to predict.

It goes beyond that, though. Perez threw strikes in 2012, and he was only all right. Now he’s improved his ability to miss bats. In all, 303 pitchers have faced at least 100 batters in each of the last two seasons. From 2012-2013, here are the five biggest drops in contact rate allowed:

  1. Casey Fien, -11.0 percentage points
  2. Oliver Perez, -10.1
  3. Manny Parra, -9.3
  4. Luke Hochevar, -7.6
  5. Cody Allen, -7.4

Perez has been allowing the same rate of contact as Ernesto Frieri, Craig Kimbrel, and All-Star reliever Steve Delabar. He’s not altogether far away from Aroldis Chapman. He’s beating Yu Darvish. As an obvious consequence, Perez’s strikeouts have shot way up, as he’s already more than doubled last year’s total in just 6.1 more innings.

Because Perez is a lefty with a slider he likes, it’s hardly surprising he’s had good success against lefties. He’s struck out a third of them, throwing 69% strikes and limiting other damage. If you watch Oliver Perez, you come away thinking “that guy should dominate left-handed hitters,” and that’s pretty much what he does. He follows the same patterns you’d expect, throwing a bunch of sliders down and away.

But here’s the really shocking part. Perez’s strikeout rate against righties is better than his rate against lefties. As a matter of fact, here are the top strikeout rates against right-handed hitters for left-handed pitchers, with a 50-PA minimum:

  1. Oliver Perez, 37.7%
  2. Glen Perkins, 37.1%
  3. Aroldis Chapman, 36.3%
  4. Alex Torres, 35.0%
  5. Andrew Miller, 32.9%

Perez has walked three righties intentionally. Of the remaining 77, he’s whiffed 29, giving him basically the same strikeout rate against righties as Crain and Trevor Rosenthal. His contact rate is 72%; his strike rate is 65%. That’s a bunch of numbers, all to say: though Oliver Perez doesn’t look like a righty-killer, and though he doesn’t have the profile of a righty-killer, he’s been something of a righty-killer, throwing with his left arm.

Armed with a straighter fastball, a sinking fastball, and a slider, Perez has pitched well against both lefties and righties alike, and as much as we’re dealing with limited samples, it’s hard to completely fake Perez’s accomplishments. He seems to have figured out a way to turn a sweeping slider into a weapon against opposite-handed bats, and this .gif is a working demonstration:

PerezNapoliSlider.gif.opt

And, for the hell of it, here’s the heat:

PerezNapoliFastball.gif.opt

Because of his style, Perez ends up allowing a lot of fly balls. He’s one of the game’s more extreme fly-ball pitchers, and fly-ball pitchers allow home runs, and Perez probably isn’t going to be a closer for this reason. He likes to throw his fastball up, and those pitches can get punished. There are costs and benefits to Perez’s pitching approach. But after coming back to the majors a year ago, now Perez is back to being highly successful, such that he should be in demand at the deadline as contenders look to boost the backs of their bullpens.

Almost every contender wants better relief. Almost every contender likes the idea of more left-handed relief. Every team in baseball likes the idea of a lefty reliever who can pitch to righty hitters. Perez is there, readily available, and because he’s Oliver Perez and not Jonathan Papelbon, he’s not going to cost an arm and a leg and the rest of a real talented young body too. Perez, probably, is affordable, and probably underrated on account of his name. He might scare some teams off, teams that don’t trust him to be what he apparently is.

If your team is playing for something, it’s probably making calls about available relievers. Perez is an available reliever, and he’s a better reliever than you probably thought. This here is a weapon, and one wins the World Series by force.

And so Sullivans carreer took a new step, he now makes in advertisement for the Mariners.

On a side note, did anybody ever check swing rates and contact rates on first pitches for pitchers with funky deliveries? I would guess both are prety low.

Dude would be an absolute perfect fit (and a great story) in the Pittsburgh bullpen. His tendency to give up fly balls would be mitigated by the vast expanse of left-field known as PNC Park, would complement Justin Wilson/Tony Watson really well enabling Hurdle to have three LHPs that can get RHBs out as well, and, for sentimental sake, it’d be a homecoming from a time that seems long ago.

Good article, Jeff.

Good contribution. I mention LF b/c he’s a LHP that will benefit from RHBs pull-side being rather difficult to hit a HR.

What he said is more funny after your remark that didn’t seem to get the point he was trying to make. Or maybe I should say it better for you? “His tendency to give up fly balls would be mitigated by the vast expanse of left-field that PNC Park is known for”. Or some other iteration close to that that doesn’t make it seem that PNC is a park that only has a left-field.

As a Mets fan, I hate this guy with a passion. The move to the bullpen was always “suggested” but because he and his agent always refused to lower his market value by transitioning away from starting, it never materialized and we were all subjected to his awful pitching. Thanks Omar!

Agreed, there are few other players (whose names don’t rhyme with Puis Pastillo) who fill me with as much rage as Perez does. Dude refused to pitch in relief and refused to go to the minors, and Minaya (Wilpon?) refused to release him as a lost cause. For a guy like Scott Kazmir I’m happy he’s regained a successful career. For Perez, I hope he tanks some contender’s stretch run.

Nathaniel Dawson

Or maybe he’s a guy who’s matured through tribulations and has come to a better understanding of what it takes of himself to be a Major League player.

I don’t really know about that one way or another, but what I do know is in the last year-and-a-half, he’s been a very good Major League reliever. One that almost any team would want to have on their team. Is he going to continue being this effective for either the long-term or the short-term? I don’t have an answer for that one either, but I sure wouldn’t disregard the contribution he might make to a team simply because he had problems with the Mets previously.

He may have had problems with team management in the past, and I sure can’t tell you anything about what happens in the clubhouse or with team management behind closed doors, but in his time with the Mariners, there hasn’t been any kind of public hint of any kind of discord or dissatisfaction with his role with the team. He takes the ball when called upon and has done a great job at shutting the opposing team down.

Due to his unpopularity with Mets fans, he’s probably not a good option for a trade there, not that they’re even in a position to go looking for some short-term help, but for any other team looking to add a good reliever, there shouldn’t be any concerns about past sins that make them think twice about adding him to fill a need.

The braves could certainly use him as well. Walden and Avilan are starting to show signs of being less dominating, and we need a second lefty in our pen. Alex Meyer would be much better served getting regular work in the minors, and Walden and Kimbrel from the right side and Perez and Avilan from the left would make one heck of an end game weapon going down the stretch.

You mean Alex Wood, and I completely agree. If ATL could acquire Perez, I’d prefer Wood go to AAA and start working as a starter again. Fredi mainly uses him in mop up duty, which is a waste.

He seems like a good fit for Atlanta. They are definitely looking for a LHP in the pen, and fly ball pitchers are perfect for Atlanta’s defensive configuration. Beachy, Minor, and Teheran (kinda) are fly ball pitchers, and the ones who have enjoyed the most success for the Braves staff recently. With two solid-average defenders in the Uptons and a Gold Glove-r in RF, and a home park that is basically neutral, Perez seems to be a PERFECT fit. Not sure of what they’d have to trade, though.

As a Mets fan I can never pick up Perez in fantasy forums out of principal. I can’t root for him either, he was a douchebag and a half with the team after he had his huge contract handed to him. Unlike Jason Bay, I will always dislike Perez.

I hope whatever team picks him up he implodes.

You’ve got it backwardswise, FeslenR: He was _on_ the wonder drug to GET the Big Long money with the Mets, went off, and imploded when his dupressed natural hormone production stayed supressed. To my eyes. Good>>Fabulous mph>>Worse than squat, and bad attitude to boot. Mets fans have plenty of reason to loathe the guy.

. . . But he’s been a whole ‘nother story here at the other end of the country. I wasn’t big on him being picked up, but he seriously re-tooled in the minors, and has been dominating since late Spring 2012. I don’t really want the Mariners to move him; not only is he very good at the moment, he’s the only one in the pen here who is reliably so. But he’s in his mid-30s, on a comeback from sub-cetaceaus fecal matter level, and half-way through a one year deal with much more money likely required for his services next year. So yeah, he kinda should be dealt—but not for somebody’s C grade junker. Perez is the best reliver who is likely to be dealt, and Jack Zd should hold out for a premium return, likely by building up a bit of a package around him.

He actually doesn’t do the twist on every pitch. It’s just another way he crosses batters up. Sometimes he’ll over exaggerate it and sometimes it’s not existent. His standard delivery though is without much twist.

I also think he could help the Red Sox. They definitely are in need of left handed relief, and he just pitched great against the Sox yesterday. Certainly, they shouldn’t give anything very good, but if it’s just money and a body, then I’d like to see the Red Sox get him.

As the guy said, a flyball pitcher isn’t great for Fenway. But the thind is, the HRs Perez has given up would be out in any park. Most of the time, he’s getting Ks.

I do think that the Red Sox are the best fit for Perez. They need him most, and have a serious shot at the Series. Oh, and the Sox will be on the hook for about %700K total in salary. Which is exactly why Jack Zd shouldn’t move him for a Grade C prospect: I mean, what’s the point, that’s like giving him away. For that, I’d far rather he stay here. What I’d like to see is a real prospect back for a reasonable package leveraged upon Perez. If the Sox want that Series, they can pay for it (although get enough back it’s not robbery either).

Balthazar

Aaaand the Bosox pick up a declining Matt Thornton for . . . a Grade C prospect, with the White Sox throwing in money. It looks good on paper, doubt it plays that well in October. I’ve really like Matt Thornton in the past out of the pen, but he’s far from the shut-down guy he used to be. More of a left-on-left guy, but rationally that fits Boston’s needs fairly well if other guys get healthy/play up, so there you go.

Hank
Guest
Hank

I don’t think the Thornton deal is bad, since the red sox have the money/prospects to spend and need not only a shut-down guy but also just general bullpen depth, what with the recent injuries. So even if Thornton is just a role-player, I’m pretty satisfied.

Please as Punch refers to Mr. Punch from Punch and Judy, a wife-beating, serial killer puppet. Originally Polichinello, a puppet from 16th century Commedia dell’arte.

It had an italian origin but became popular in England and much-changed over the years. It began in England around the restoration of the monarchy. Samuel Pepys’s diary has an entry from 1666:

I with my wife…by coach to Moorefields, and there saw ‘Polichinello’, which pleases me mightily.

Earliest known use is in a satire by William Gifford in 1797.

Dickens used it, in David Copperfield (1850) phrased “as proud as Punch” and Hard Times (1854), “as pleased as Punch”.

There you go. I’m keen as mustard for information that’s useless as tits on a boar.

Punch the puppet swung a cricket bat like stick held in the arms/handlers fingers latterally like a fly swatter. You’d know this if you ever saw it performed. Tnad so Punch and Judy hitter is a very accurate metaphor for a stiff-armed slap hitter swatting the ball the other way rather than torquing his body to drive through a pitch for distance.

And Wobatus, I was thinking of commenting up a fraction of what you just said much better on the origin of ‘Punch’ so thanks for saving me from myself.

I doubt Seattle will part with him for cheap. I actually think they will extend him. Hard to imagine this one year ago, but Seattle looks like they could ambush this division next year. They are going to be very tough in the 2nd half as well. The Ms are getting very good very fast.

I expect they will want to get a good look at Walker very soon while he’s got inning left. Hultzen will get his look in August/September. A 2nd half rotation of King Felix, Iwakuma, Erasmo, Walker, and Hultzen (once he gets right) is going to be extremely tough. Perez helps give them a tough pen. The bats are starting to develop too. Not an M’s fan but I love where this team is headed. They aren’t getting much attention yet, but watch them in the 2nd half. It could be the start of something very big.

In which case, there’s no reason to move him. I’d rather he was given a reason to re-sign than to move him for org fill. It’s not like contending teams _deserve_ every non-contender’s best players, which is the attitude that drifts into discussions on deadline deals all to often. “You izz loser so giv us all you cookiiiiies.” No. Somebody wants his services, they can trade value for that.

I mean, I don’t expect a Bagwell for Larry Anderson deal; Oliver Perez is better than that. : }

The Mariners would be idiots to not get something for Perez, since he’ll be a FA at the end of the season and they have so many in-house options. Zduriencik has no problems finding guys like Oliver Perez. If August 1st comes around and Perez is still a Mariner, something has gone horribly wrong.

The real game of top prospects is to get as freaking many as you can, throw them all at the wall and see if you made something that resembles anything. The Ms have kind of done that, and in a way show how expendable top prospects really are. Two years ago it would have been blasphemous to even mention trading Jesus Montero for a stretch run with Oliver Perez, now you’d think Jesus might not even be enough (obviously assuming they didn’t play on the same team, for the sake of the point). I feel dirty even typing this, but Smoak might not work in your example for much longer. He’s….finally….starting…..to…..hit….uuugh that was hard to say!

Personally, I’d rather the Ms resign him, as I’m a pro-lefty guy, and the years we went with no lefty in the pen drove me freaking bananas. However, if they do trade him it does need to be a B/B+ prospect at AA or above I would imagine. I think that’s fair.

Hultzen got slowed down this year by a shoulder injury, and in his second start back, got pulled again for tightness in his shoulder. This could be a hiccup, or it could be something more ominous, we don’t know yet. It’s looking unlikely that he’ll join the M’s any time this year, or at least not until very late in the season, too late to have any kind of impact.

Walker has only recently been promoted to AAA, and is unlikely to be promoted to the majors before some time next year. He’s also likely on an innings pitched limit this year of around 180, so even if he did get a call-up, it would be of short duration and wouldn’t change the M’s outlook much.

Otherwise, I share your general enthusiasm of the young hitters, but can’t envision a full out assault of the division next year, now matter how I might long for it. Some modest improvement from the team in the second half, plus a team with some good talent all around the diamond that puts some pressure on the other teams in the division next year is the best I can realistically hope for.

Maybe the Jays should trade for Oliver Perez: clearly they need a 5th lefty. I also long to see a ‘pen with LHPs Juan Perez, Oliver Perez, and Darren Oliver. That phone call to the ‘pen would be priceless:
Gibbons: “Get Perez up.”
Hentgen: “Which one?”
Gibbons: “Oliver.”
Hentgen: “Darren? I thought you said Perez.”
Gibbons (getting worked up): “I did! Now get Oliver up.”
Hentgen (stifles a laugh): “Darren? But…”
Gibbons (veins on head clearly visible): “Forget it. Get the other lefty warmed up.”
Hentgen (slaps knee while stifling a laugh): “Which one?”
Gibbons: “Don’t start that again! Neil, then!!”
Hentgen: “Gibby, I don’t know what that’ll do. I can’t reach the phone when I’m kneeling.”
Gibbons hangs up the phone and buries his face into his hands.
