Perez's place in Rangers '14 rotation

August was a huge month for Texas' 22-year-old lefty Martin Perez, who earned AL Rookie of the Month honors after going 5-0 with a 3.06 ERA. He followed that award up with a stellar 7-inning gem on Tuesday against Oakland, recording his sixth-consecutive win and improving his record to 9-3 on the season.

As strong as Perez has pitched in the second half, one has to wonder how that sets him up for his spot on the 2014 staff. Lets take a look.
