In his first 16 starts, Perez was 7-2 with a 4.28 ERA. During the first three months of that stretch, he was inconsistent from time to time. He allowed 13 home runs while striking out 60, walking 30 and allowing 43 runs. In his four starts in July, those numbers went up to 17 earned runs on 26 hits including five home runs and 11 walks. That is compared to nine strikeouts in 18 innings. Those were the last starts Perez made before being relegated to the bullpen for the rest of the reason and the Rangers World Series run.
