Signed by the Reds by scout Richard Jimenez, Perez hit over .300 twice in his first four seasons in the USA. He split 2010 between the DSL Reds, with whom he hit .429 in 16 games, the Lynchburg Hillcats (.338 batting average in 16 games) and the Carolina Mudcats (.266 batting average in 35 games), for a composite .322 batting average.
