Perez, 28, has a career mark of 53-56 with a 4.72 ERA in eight Major League Baseball seasons, the first seven of which came with the Texas Rangers, where he posted double-digit wins in 2013, 2016 and 2017. This past year, Porcello posted a record of 14-12 with an ERA of 5.52 and a WHIP of 1.394.

The benefit of this one-year deal for Porcello is that, if he has a bounce-back season, he can potentially leverage that into a multi-year contract next offseason. He likely feels he can get more money next offseason if he has a solid year, so he should be plenty motivated to perform well in NY. He struck out 143 batters and walked 45 through 32 starts (174.1 total innings pitched).
