Pitcher, Baseball Player
Who is Yorkis Pérez?
Yorkis Miguel Vargas Pérez is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. The left-hander appeared in 337 games over nine seasons for the Chicago Cubs, Florida Marlins, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Houston Astros and Baltimore Orioles, all as a relief pitcher. He also pitched three games in 1992 for the Yomiuri Giants.
He signed a minor league deal with Baltimore just before the start of the 2002 season after he was released by the Arizona Diamondbacks during the last week of spring training. After spending almost the entire first half of the campaign with the Rochester Red Wings, his contract was purchased by the Orioles on June 25. He went 0–0 with one save and a 3.29 earned run average in 23 appearances before an appendectomy on September 12 ended his season. He was released nineteen days later on October 1.
