Perdomo Returns to Action

LHP Angel Perdomo returned to action with Dunedin for the first time since last July, and looked like he hadn’t missed a start.

The tall lefty struck out 7 Lakeland hitters over 5 innings in a Florida State League game yesterday.  Perdomo had been shut down with back issues last July.

Perdomo has long teased with the late life on his fastball, which has touched 97.  Command of that fastball and the effectiveness of his secondaries has limited his development since signing with Toronto prior to the 2012 season.

Yesterday, he appeared to have a two-pitch mix going for him:

Understandably, he began to fatigue as the game progressed:

Perdomo left after the 5th having not given up a run, and walking only one.  He threw 78 pitches, 48 for strikes, which was probably due to the rust of having not started a game in almost 10 months.  Still, for a first time on the mound in a long time, there were a lot of positive takeaways from yesterday’s outing.
