Scottsdale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) -
Seeking a lefty specialist to bolster their bullpen, the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to terms with veteran Oliver Perez on a two-year contract Monday.
Perez, a 15-game winner as a starter with the New York Mets in 2007, was out of the majors four years later before rescuing his career as a reliever with Seattle the past two seasons. In 94 games with the Mariners, the 32-year-old posted a 3.16 earned run average while striking out 98 batters in 82 2/3 innings.
The Mexico native went 3-3 with two saves and a 3.74 ERA in 61 appearances last season, while limiting left-handed hitters to a .238 average.
