Outrighted To Triple-A: Jason Rice, Juan Perez

Let's keep track of the day's outright assignments right here, starting with a pair of moves courtesy of the International League transactions page

  • The Indians have outrighted Jason Rice to Triple-A. The 25-year-old had been designated for assignment earlier this month, soon after Cleveland claimed him off waivers from the Athletics, who had acquired him from the Red Sox for Conor Jackson. Rice posted a 3.69 ERA, 9.4 K/9, 4.4 BB/9, and 0.6 HR/9 in 85 1/3 Triple-A innings this year.
  • The Phillies have outrighted Juan Perez to Triple-A. The 33-year-old lefty pitched to a 5.70 ERA in 36 1/3 Triple-A innings this season, and was generally ineffective in five appearances with the big league team. He was designated for assignment last weekend as part of a flurry of roster moves.

He struck out the side on 9 pitches against the Braves. Juan Perez has the potential to be a good major league situational left hander but like a lot of guys, he can’t throw strikes most of the time… oh well.

Jason Rice has been in quite a few organizations now. Have to wonder f he will ever get a chance somewhere. Nice FB, seem to remember soxprospects had it there in the mid 90’s (95-96), just kind of wild.
