"All my career I've been throwing to lefties sidearm," Perez said. "This year I'm going to use it more."But before Mets fans get too excited about paying Perez roughly, according to PECOTA, $87,000 an inning, I should probably temper some expectations. That's some pretty bland praise for a seven pitch pop out of Cardinals middling prospect Daniel Descalso.
"He threw strikes," Terry Collins said. "That's what we wanted him to do. He threw strikes, gave them a different look. I thought the 1-2 pitch, he made a real, real good pitch on the outside corner."
Somebody owes me $5. I told you I could write an entire post about one Spring Training at bat.
