Perez out 3-4 weeks. He's a loudmouth and he's been on the chop-block before. Pestano is a much better arm and a guy I'd target for a 1-2$ pick in auction leagues or as an end-game pick, anyway. Perfect middle of the season CL, and a guy I'd rather not have to spend $20 on waivers if he's gonna get the job sooner than later... and it looks like he finally might this year. Watching Perez is like walking on coals... even if he accumulated saves last season like he did. He almost lost the gig early until stabilizing things... but no, he's out for now and had to withdraw from the WBC too. Conceivable chance he can make it back for opening day, but unlikely. Pestano should assume the duties for at least a week or two into the season I would think.... and if he starts out red-hot (as do the Indians perhaps), I don't know how they can pull him. He certainly posts much better peripherals than Perez and doesn't make you sit on the edge of your seat every other pitch or AB...
