Pay link, but here's what he says. It was a big surprise to see the Rangers move Perez up to the Texas League earlier in the month. Not that his performance at Low-A Hickory wasn't impressive, but in the sense that the Venezuelan southpaw is only 18 years old. What wasn't surprising was to see him struggle in his first two starts, but he put everything together on Tuesday night with five scoreless frames. How crazy is it to have a guy this year in Double-A? Research done by Rangers minor league expert Scott Lucas of the Newberg Report found that the second youngest player in the Texas League is Angels lefty Trevor Reckling, who is nearly two years Perez' senior. A first-round pick in 2007, Main missed much of 2008 recovering from a cracked rib, but pitched so well during the second half of the year that many were predicting a breakout season. That didn't happen in any way, shape or form, as Main's ERA after 12 starts for High-A Bakersfield sat at 7.33. Even more concerning (on a real world level) was when he left the team in June with an illness that had weakened him throughout the year. Expected to miss the remainder of the season, it was a surprise to see him back to pitching on Tuesday night, and it was even more surprising to see his fastball suddenly up to 93 mph.
