The Astros selected Florida prep Joe Perez in the second round of the 2017 draft, a promising two-way player with an uncertain future. It was clear that Perez required Tommy John surgery on draft night. The next day, he received it.

Later, in 2018, Perez had shoulder surgery, which limited him to just 50 games in 2019. Perez was unable to play baseball in 2020 since the Astros did not invite him to their other training facility.

An unforgettable year in 2021 paved the way for Perez to become a promising element of Houston’s future. The 22-year-old third baseman progressed from Low-A Fayetteville to High-A Asheville and then to Double-A Corpus Christi.
