Perez was originally signed to a Minor League Deal by the Yankees in late March, but never appeared in a ballgame for the Big League club.
In fifteen appearances for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Perez went 1-0 with a respectable 2.92 ERA.
Over the course of 12.1 innings pitched, the lefty struck out thirteen batters, but surrendered fourteen hits and three walks in his time with the RailRiders.
Perez sports a career ERA of 4.64 to go along with a record of 69-84.
The well-traveled lefty specialist has played for seven Major League teams throughout his fifteen years in the Show, and will look to latch on to another club in hopes of earning a spot on a Major League roster.
