After hitting .326 in April, owners should have expected a bit of a drop off for the 25-year-old catcher. Perez only hit .240 in May and has seen his season average fall to .276.
Since May 10, Perez is batting .227 with just two home runs and a .618 OPS. He also has just seven RBI over that span, which is half as many as Perez had in April.
Still, as long as Perez has been in owners’ rotisserie lineups all season, his season totals of .276, six home runs, 25 RBI and .717 OPS are very respectable for a middle tier catcher.
