Martín Pérez (born April 4, 1991) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Texas Rangers. Baseball America ranked Perez as the #17 baseball prospect in their top 100 for 2010.[1]

The Texas Rangers signed Perez in 2007 for $580,000 as a undrafted free agent. While only making 15 short starts in 62 innings at Rookie-level Spokane, Perez went 1-2 with a 3.65 earned run average.

Perez features a four-seam fastball that is regularly clocked at 92 mph, a sharp breaking curveball, and a change-up. His velocity is not that of a power pitcher, but his pitches have good movement. The speed of his fastball has increased since he was signed. Being as small as he is at 6'0" and 165 lbs, Perez may always be more of a finesse pitcher than a power pitcher even if he is able to consistently throw a mid-90's fastball. He is compared to be a cross between Johan Santana and Greg Maddux by Jason Parks of Baseball Time in Arlington.

On June 26, 2012, Perez was called up by the Rangers.[2]

The next day he made his first major league appearance against the Detroit Tigers. He gave up 2 hits and 4 runs while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning.

On June 30, 2012, Perez made his first major league start, pitching 5 and a third innings and striking out five while only giving up two runs in a 7-2 win over the Oakland A's.
