Eduardo Atanasio Pérez, (born September 11, 1969 in Cincinnati) is a former Major League Baseball player and currently the bench coach of the Houston Astros for manager Bo Porter. He served as hitting coach of the Miami Marlins in 2011 and 2012. As a player, he batted and threw right-handed, playing 13 seasons in Major League Baseball and one season in Nippon Professional Baseball.
Early career 
Pérez graduated from Robinson School (a private, college-prep high school) in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He went to Florida State University and majored in political science. He played college baseball under head coach Mike Martin for the Florida State University Seminoles. As a Seminoles' junior in 1991, Pérez was named 2nd Team All-American by the American Baseball Coaches Association and 3rd Team All-American by Baseball America, batting .370 with 11 home runs, 58 RBIs, and 30 stolen bases. That year, the Seminoles were also in the College World Series, and Pérez was a first-round draft pick (17th overall) of the California Angels.
He played professionally in 1991 for the Angels' Class A short-season Boise Hawks of the Northwest League. The following year, he played for the Class A Palm Springs Angels of the California League before being promoted to the Class AA Midland Angels of the Texas League. In 1993 he played most of the year with the Class AAA Vancouver Canadians of the Pacific Coast League, and in July he was called up to the parent club.
Major League career 
He played his first big-league game on July 27, 1993 as the host Angels defeated the Oakland A's 15-8, according to Baseball-Reference.com. Starting at third base and batting sixth, he made the most of it — in 5 at-bats, he had 2 hits and a walk, 3 RBI, and 3 runs scored. His first at-bat resulted in a first inning walk against Bobby Witt, and an inning later he got his first-ever hit, a double off reliever Joe Boever. In the eighth inning, he hit his first home run, a 3-run shot off Kevin Campbell, scoring teammates Tim Salmon and Chili Davis.
His final hit came September 23, 2006 as the Mariners fell to the host Chicago White Sox, 11-7. He hit a fifth inning single off Mark Buehrle, driving in Raúl Ibañez. His final career at-bat was September 29, 2006. Playing for the Seattle Mariners in a 6-5 loss to the Texas Rangers, he pinch hit for Ben Broussard and struck out against C. J. Wilson.
Later career 
Pérez joined ESPN's Baseball Tonight 2006 postseason coverage along with current player Vernon Wells, and former players Tino Martinez and Eric Byrnes. Pérez worked as an analyst for "Baseball Tonight" through 2011 and also served as an analyst for ESPN Deportes' "Béisbol Esta Noche." In 2007, he provided commentary for the NCAA baseball regionals, the Triple-A All-Star Game and the Little League World Series regionals. He speaks both English and Spanish fluently.
In late 2007, just three months after the Puerto Rican winter baseball league was cancelled after 69 seasons, Pérez returned to Puerto Rico and announced his founding of the Winter Training Program (WTP) for both professional and amateur players in an effort to return pro baseball back to the island. The program was sponsored by the government municipality of San Juan, Major League Baseball, and private donors.
In 2008 and 2009, Pérez was manager of Leones de Ponce in Puerto Rico. He was named 2008 Manager of the Year in the Puerto Rico Baseball League, leading the team to the league title.
While serving as a special assistant to the baseball operations department of the Cleveland Indians, on June 8, 2011 Pérez was named hitting coach of the Miami Marlins, replacing John Mallee, a position he held until manager Ozzie Guillén and most of his staff were let go shortly after the 2012 season. He managed the team representing Colombia in the World Baseball Classic Qualifying Round in 2013, finishing with a 1-2 record.
Pérez is the youngest of two sons of baseball Hall of Famer Tony Pérez and Pituka Pérez. His godfather is Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda. Eduardo's brother, Victor, graduated from Xavier University and played one year in the Cincinnati Reds minor league system. He is a high-end properties real estate agent in New York City.
Eduardo Pérez is married to Mirba Rivera; they wed in December, 2000. The couple has two daughters -- Andreanna, born in 2003, and Juliana, born in 2006. The family's main residence is in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Eduardo Pérez is a self-admitted "gadget freak" and he and Mirba are both active in social media -- Eduardo's Twitter handle is @PerezEd and Mirba's is @MirbaRivera -- where part of her bio states, "Baseball follower (not a fan) by marriage, still working on the fan bit."
