Insight: This is what we feared when the Rangers placed him on the disabled list earlier this week. Perez, who was recently diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his left elbow, faces a 12-to-15 month recovery period.

Insight: Another pitcher goes down with an elbow injury. Perez is weighing his options but we know how this usually ends. Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch will join Texas' rotation in place of Perez and Matt Harrison (back).

Description: Rangers starter Martin Perez gave up just five hits (all singles) over eight scoreless innings Sunday against Houston to improve to 2-0.
Insight: Houston didn't have a runner reach second base due in large part to four GIDPs. The 23-year-old Perez has good upside and should be owned in 12-team mixed leagues.

Insight: Sunday marked Perez's first complete game in 16 big league starts. Over nine innings, he allowed just four hits and one run, walking two while collecting eight strikeouts. The 22-year-old from Venezuela will look to duplicate Sunday's performance next week against the Mariners.

Description: Rangers left-hander Martin Perez will be recalled from Triple-A to start Saturday against the Cardinals, according to Anthony Andro of FOXSportsSouthwest.com.
Insight: Perez has gone 4-0 with a 1.13 ERA in four starts with Round Rock. The former prospect spent the first month of the season on the DL with a fractured wrist and could be a decent mixed league starter if given the chance. Nick Tepesch will be moved back from Saturday to Sunday, and Yu Darvish will go Tuesday. Perez is replacing Josh Lindblom in the rotation.

Description: Rangers left-hander Martin Perez is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The Rangers have listed Saturday's starter as "TBD" instead of keeping scheduled starter Nick Tepesch, who is 0-2 with a 6.95 ERA over his last four starts, on the board. That could mean Perez will be called up to start Saturday. The former prospect spent the first month of the season on the DL with a fractured wrist and could be a decent mixed league starter if given the chance.
