Perez is coming off another miserable start, walking a season-high seven and hitting a batter in 3 1/3 innings in a loss to San Francisco. He has walked 25 in 30 innings.
Perez is winless in his last seven starts but Jerry Manuel said he’ll stay in the rotation.
“I am disappointed in myself,’’ Perez said. “I’ve got to be better than that. I know what I have to do.’’
The Mets aren’t hitting at all, especially on the road where they are averaging less than four runs a game with a .208 average.
“We have to start swinging the bats,” Manuel said. “We have to take note these next couple of days where we are as an offensive club. And if we continue to see the same thing, then I’m going to have to make some adjustments to the lineup.’’
