AP source: Pirates, catcher Roberto Pérez reach 1-year deal

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates didn't waste time finding a replacement for Gold Glove catcher Jacob Stallings.

A person with knowledge of the decision tells The Associated Press the Pirates have agreed to a 1-year deal worth $5 million with former Cleveland catcher Roberto Perez. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal had not been announced. The signing is contingent on Perez passing a physical.

Perez, 32, won Gold Gloves in 2019 and 2020 with Cleveland but struggled at the plate throughout his career and hit just .149 with seven home runs and 17 RBIs in 44 games in 2021. The Guardians declined his $7 million option for 2022.
