The Giants called up Juan Perez, a 26-year-old center fielder in Triple-A who had never seen the bigs before, because they were short on center fielders with Angel Pagan out. The young man has tools and strengths, but he knows the former and is working on the latter.
To wit, two things he said to me before last night’s game:
1) “I got a good arm. I just made a good throw in a perfect time in the game.”
2) “This year, I’ve been working on my two-strike approach, trying to be more selective and get the ball in play.”
Well done, young man. Well done.
