The Red Sox have sent right-hander Pedro Perez to the Tigers to complete the trade for Triple-A infielder Brent Dlugach, according to Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe. Perez spent last season with Boston's Single-A Greenville affiliate.
Perez, who will turn 23 in May, turned in a 3.94 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 in 28 games last season in Greenville. The right-hander made just two starts last season but has 30 starts to his credit in five minor league seasons. The Tigers have assigned him to their Connecticut Short-Season Class A affiliate, according to Steve Kornacki of MLive.com.
The Red Sox acquired Dlugach in November for cash considerations or a player to be named later. The 28-year-old owns a career .274/.325/.401 slash line in Triple-A.
