Just a few moments ago, it came out the Milwaukee Brewers had signed once top 10 prospect in the Padres system Luis Perdomo to a minor league deal. While this deal will have no ramifications for the upcoming 2021 season more than likely, as Perdomo underwent Tommy John surgery during the 2020 season, and was then sent packing from San Diego, after five disappointing seasons. Ending his tenure in San Diego for the time being, he totaled 444.1 innings with a 5.19 ERA, 4.44 FIP and 1.52 WHIP in his five years. There were signs of positive growth in 2019, as they moved him into a reliever role, and he posted a 4.00 ERA in 72 innings, with an even better 3.60 FIP.

The biggest problem for Perdomo is the fact his walk rate has always been hovering above league average, and in 2020 it took off to a 13.5 rate in limited time. Couple that with a 16.9 percent strike out rate for his five year career and you’ve got a good deal of problems to address. While he will not make a difference in the Brewers 2020 campaign, depending on the progression or regression of the team, he could find a reliever or spot starter role in Milwaukee in 2021, if they decide to keep him around and he makes positive progress on the recovery side of the surgery.
