perez was able to make only 3 starts for the yankees in 1990. he won his first start, gave up just one unearned run but lost his second start, and then gave up two earned runs in 3 innings to lose his third and final start of the season. with that, he suffered a shoulder injury and was done for the year. he returned in 1991, but made only 14 starts that year, his final year in the majors.
