Pascual Perez killed during robbery

Tweet [1]

Former Yankees starter Pascual Perez was murdered [2] at his home this morning.

According to multiple reports, Perez was stabbed in the neck during a robbery, with the attacker(s) possibly going after the MLB pension money which he recently received.

Perez played his final two Major League seasons [3]with the Yankees. He had a largely successful career, including one All-Star appearance, but he’s mostly remembered as a quirky and flamboyant personality who once missed a start because he got lost driving to his home stadium. [4]
