10/15/2010 - Team One Fall Showcase 2010
Julian showed some similar skills in his game during his time at the Team One Fall Showcase. At 3rd base, Julian has a good set-up, playable hands, and decent footwork. He works around the ball well, has athletic actions, and has a quick / clean exchange. More aggressiveness to the ball and fielding it further out in front of his body will help defensive numbers improve. Offensively, Julian has a solid set-up, good balance, and a short to long swing. He tracks the ball well, swings in good rhythm, and he can spray the ball to all fields. Offensive numbers can get even better if Julian can close off his swing and avoid diving down at the ball.
01/16/2009 - Under Armour Preseason All America - 2009
Julian is a 3B with nice body control and rhythm. Positions himself well but needs to lighten up footwork. Arm strength is above average. At the plate, he has loose hands and a quick bat. Has rhythm throughout and uses his lower half effectively. Would like to see his extension through contact improve. Young player with a physical frame and a lot of time to develop. Solid prospect.
11/02/2008 - National Tryout - Tampa, FL
Julian is a young, 2011 graduate, corner infielder that has a tall, strong looking frame that shows projection as it continues to physically mature. Foot speed is heavy but does play quicker than 60 time indicates. He is aggressive and active with his feet in coming to get and playing through ground balls. Glove action is presented down and out from displaying soft, sure, and clean actions. His hands and feet work well together. Arm strength is near above average displaying life and carry across the diamond. At the plate, Perez has above average ability and power. Bat speed is a plus and he shows a solid feel for the barrel through a level swing path. The baseball jumps off his bat when centered and shows flashes of being a power threat. With 3 years to further develop, Julian has the makings of a special type player and will get a ton of looks from the college coaches.
