The Pittsburgh Pirates are without a doubt one of the youngest clubs in baseball. Going through their rebuild, bringing in some veteran talent to help develop their youngsters. They did just that by bringing in veteran lefty, Martín Pérez to a one-year, $8 million deal, per Jon Heyman of The New York Post.
Pérez has spent the last two seasons in Texas, collecting his first all-star selection in 2022. Pérez has spent a total of 12 seasons in the league, nine with Texas, two with Boston, and a quick stint in Minnesota. Posting a 4.45 ERA last season was not in Pérez's game plan, however, he's just two seasons off of his outstanding 2.89 ERA campaign.
Pérez is sliding into a rotation, in which, he will be atop. The Pirates are a young bunch where Pérez will get his fresh start. Although just a one-year contract, the club is hoping Pérez can do more than just pitch as the team is looking to finally turn the corner of their long rebuild.
