ISLA DE MARGARITA, Venezuela -- Oliver Perez is looking for a job.

But on Sunday afternoon, he was just looking for three outs.

The left-handed pitcher struggled in his first appearance of the Caribbean Series, giving up three runs in the ninth inning of Mexico's 6-3 victory over Puerto Rico.

Perez, who is a free agent, said he is looking for the right deal before he commits.

"There are teams that are interested, but there's nothing finalized and I can't really speak on that," Perez said. "I'm here to help lift the level of baseball in Mexico and win the Caribbean Series. It's an honor to be here."

Perez went 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA in 9 1/3 innings during eight games for Culiacan in Mexico. He went 3-3 with a 3.74 ERA in 61 games for the Mariners last season.
