Perez out for 2010 Season

Juri Perez pitched well enough for Greeneville in 2009 that Baseball America named him the 10th best prospect in the Appalachian League. However, the 19-year old right-hander blew out his arm in Houston's 2009 Fall Instructional camp and will miss the entire 2010 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. Perez had a 2.79 ERA in 52 innings recording 60 strikeouts. He is listed as the Astros #31 prospect by Baseball America in their recently released Prospect Handbook.

He actually left his last start in G'ville with his arm hanging and holding his elbow. So I would bet the injury occurred there.

thanks for the scoop from Greeneville, Steve. I only had the info. from BA's Handbook. Hopefully, he comes back strong in 2011.
