Ollie may play winter ball in hometown

|
WASHINGTON -- Oliver Perez hasn't thrown much this summer. So he figures he might as well pitch this winter.

Following Monday's game, in which Perez allowed one run and struck out three batters over two innings -- in just his third relief appearance since the start of August -- Perez indicated that he is considering pitching for his hometown of Culiacan, Mexico, this winter in the Mexican League.

Limited by injury and sporadic use out of the bullpen, Perez has thrown just 67 1/3 innings over three levels this season -- two years removed from pitching 194 innings for the Mets in 2008. With one season left on his three-year, $36 million contract, Perez expects to be able to help the Mets once more.

"I have one more year," Perez said. "If I'm here, I'm going to do all the best for my team."
