Texas Rangers Top 10 Prospects Released By Baseball America

There aren't many lefthanders who can match Perez's potential with three pitches, not even in the major leagues. His fastball velocity has increased from the mid-80s when he signed to 91-95 mph with good sink when he's at his best. He did sit around 89-92 for much of last summer before regaining velocity toward the end of the season.

Baseball America projects Perez to begin 2011 in AAA Round Rock - and they still project him to be a "true ace."
