Profile: Signed by the Brewers out of the Dominican Republic in July of 2017, Perez was assigned to Milwaukee’s affiliate in the Dominican Summer League and made his debut there just a few weeks later.  In limited opportunities, Perez showed the ability to blow the ball by hitters, but also struggled with his command at times as a 19-year-old.

2017:  Perez got his first taste of professional baseball in 2017, pitching for the DSL Brewers out of the bullpen.  In nine relief appearances, he posted a 3.45 earned run average, allowing six runs over 15.2 innings of work.  He struck out 16 but also walked nine, finishing with a WHIP of 1.72
