He earned First-Team All-America honors after compiling a 17-3 record during his two-year career at Brookdale.

 

After Brookdale, Perez turned down a professional contract to attend University of Miami on a baseball scholarship in 2003. At Miami, Perez battled injuries early in his first season but came back and helped the Hurricanes in their run to the College World Series finishing 8th in the nation.

While in spring training with the Cubs, Perez suffered a severe injury to his throwing arm, forcing him to retire from professional baseball.
