Rays add OF Eury Perez to Durham roster



The Rays acquired OF Eury Perez from the Astros for cash on Thursday and assigned him to Triple-A Durham.

Perez, 26, has big-league time with the Nationals (2012-13), Yankees (2014) and Braves (2015). He was hitting .267 with a .683 OPS and nine steals for Houston's Triple-A team.

Though likely acquired to provide depth at Triple-A, he could be an option for the Rays as they have four outfielders on the big-league DL. He does have some speed as well.

Perez is out of options.
