According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, the team has signed left-hander Martin Perez. It is a one-year, $6 million deal with a club option for 2021.

Perez, who will be 29 years old next season, pitched for the Rangers in his first seven seasons in the league and then spent last year with the Twins. In 32 games (29 starts), he went 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA.

Overall for his career, the lefty has a 4.72 ERA in 173 appearances, which include 157 starts.

It seems like he will compete for a spot in the backend of the rotation.
