In 67 games with Triple-A Syracuse, Class A Advanced Potomac and the GCL Nationals, Perez hit .310 (75-for-242) with 36 runs, 14 doubles, two homers and 15 RBIs.
In a corresponding 40-man roster move, the Yankees designated left-hander Josh Outman for assignment. The 30-year-old had no record and an 0.00 ERA in nine appearances for New York, spanning 3 2/3 innings, with no walks and two strikeouts.
"With some of the nicked up position players we had, we felt it was probably in our best interest to [cut] a pitcher," Girardi said. "Outman had done a pretty good job for us. He's a situational lefty, which are kind of difficult to use this time of year."
