Perez was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Brewers placed Scooter Gennett (oblique) on the 15-day DL on Thursday, so Perez will come up from Triple-A to fill his spot on the 25-man roster. Yadiel Rivera figures to be Gennett's primary replacement at second base, but Perez could see a few spot starts at various spots around the infield over the next few weeks.

Perez is 21-for-62 (.339) with a home run, four doubles, and 11 RBI through 16 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez owns just a .664 OPS in his minor-league career, but he is taking advantage of the thin Colorado air early on, posting an .848 OPS over his first 16 games with Colorado Springs. He appeared in 112 games with the Brewers last season, so he could be an option for the big club at some point this season.

Perez will not be part of the Brewers' Opening Day roster, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez appeared in 90 games with the Brewers last season and posted a respectable .270 batting average, but he was beaten out for a roster spot this spring by fellow infielders Colin Walsh and Yadiel Rivera. Perez's season will begin with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Perez signed a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Tigers were said to be interested in bringing Perez back, but the Brewers convinced him to return, perhaps with the promise of a competition for playing time at third base in spring training. Perez, 24, hit just one homer and drew five walks in 112 games in the majors last season, so even if he works into a major-league role, it's hard to see him becoming relevant outside the deepest of NL-only formats.

Perez will become a free agent after being outrighted off the 40-man roster by the Brewers on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The move comes as somewhat of a surprise, as Perez had worked his way into consistent at bats in Milwaukee, as he hit .270 in 90 games. The 24-year-old will now become a minor league free agent and should have the opportunity to at least compete for a Opening Day roster spot out of spring training.

Perez went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 win over San Diego on Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez was just 7-for-45 over his previous 19 games, so this performance was surprising. Prior to that slump, Perez was nearing the .300 mark for average and pushing Jason Rogers, Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett for playing time. He will likely play a nice role as a utility player for next season in things fall his way.

Hernan Perez is not in the lineup Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez hasn't been able to do much damage as of late, recording just three extra base hits in the month of September. He will get the night off in favor of Luis Sardinas, who will take over at third base and hit seventh in the lineup.

Perez went 3-for-5 with a double and three runs batted in Monday, guiding Milwaukee to a 9-1 victory over the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez has been getting a long look at third base for the Brewers, a position vacated after Aramis Ramirez's trade to the Pirates. Although the 24-year-old profiles as a plus-defender, Perez has mild offensive upside -- notching a .332 wOBA in 596 Triple-A plate appearances last season. Perez will likely continue receiving steady at-bats this season and audition for the everyday job next spring.

Perez went 3-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Perez got the start at third base and he appears to be finding a nice utility role with the Brewers. The Venezuelan has been very good in his time with the Brewers as his average is just shy of .300 with his new team. The Tigers never really gave him a chance and he should see plenty of plate appearances in the final two months for a team who is out of contention.

Perez went 10-for-21 (.476) with four doubles and two RBI over his last eight games.

Perez's recent showing doesn't immediately jump off the page, but it's a stark difference from the way he was hitting previously -- Perez was hitting just .063 (3-for-48) as recently as June 12. He is splitting his time between the second base and third base positions, starting at the keystone against opposing left-handers and taking up the hot corner when the veteran Ramirez needs a day off.
