Perez update

Just talked to Rays VP of baseball, Andrew Friedman.

He said outfielder Fernando Perez had pins placed in the underside of his left wrist Saturday, the one he dislocated March 10 while diving to catch a sinking line drive.

Perez had his wrist scoped so doctors could determine if there was more damage than what was revealed during his MRI. apparently, there was.

“Had we not caught this, it’s something that could have ended up being a bigger problem," Friedman said. "The doctor is confident that the wrist is going to heal well now that we’ve done this, and that it won’t be a lingering problem for him.”

Friedman said the pins will push Perez's recovery back from two to three months, as originally thought, to four to five.
