Oliver Perez Rumors: Tuesday

4:57pm: Just to hammer the point home, Brewers GM Doug Melvin responded "absolutely not" when asked if he's in on Perez.

4:02pm: Anthony Rieber's source says the Mets are "a little bit closer" to signing Perez, but they're maintaining dialogue with Ben Sheets, Randy Wolf, and Jon Garland.  Rieber says the Mets have shown a willingness to go to four years for Perez.

1:34pm: Heyman says the Mets remain the favorite for Perez, even though talks slowed in the last day or two.  The Mets' offer exceeds three years and $30MM.

9:02am: Tom Haudricourt finds the Brewers-Perez connection to be Scott Boras propaganda - the Brewers don't like his price and don't want to give up a draft pick.

8:14am: Matthew Cerrone passes along a Jon Heyman MLB Network report of rumblings that the Rangers and Brewers may be in on Oliver Perez.  The Mets remain the favorite.

At 27, Perez is the youngest free agent starter this year.  However, I imagine a four-year deal would still be a tough sell for the Rangers or Brewers.
