Odalis Perez Not Returning Calls

According to the AP, Odalis Perez is M.I.A.  He missed the mandatory Spring Training report date, and isn't returning calls from the Nationals or his agent.  GM Jim Bowden believes he has an agreement on an $850K minor league deal.  Bowden ultimately expects Perez to honor the agreement.  Perez's statement from a few days ago:

"I thought it best and I prefer to sit in my house if the Nationals do not show more appreciation for my work.  Appreciate my work means to increase the value of the contract and guarantee it. I will not accept any minor league contracts with no safeguards. I instructed my agent to report my position to the Nationals."

Bowden told Chico Harlan of the Washington Post that he dealt with a similar situation with Tony Fernandez in '95.
