Ollie makes Mexican League debut

Oliver Perez made his winter league debut today for Los Tomateros of the Mexican League, striking out two batters in a perfect inning of relief.

Perez, of course, is famously owed $12 million next year on the final third of his three-year, $36 million contract. It’s unlikely he’ll ever throw another pitch in a Mets uniform — but it’s not impossible, either. A strong winter and spring could afford him one last shot with the Mets, who lack depth both in the rotation and their bullpen.

Then again, the Mets could just as easily cut Perez loose, an action that former general manager Omar Minaya never urged ownership to consider. Certainly, new GM Sandy Alderson will explore every option — orthodox or original — before taking any action regarding Perez.

Even IF he has a stellar winter, I wouldn’t trust him. His problems are in his head, not his arm.
