Perry was released by the Nationals on Monday, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.
A former first-round selection by the Tigers in 2008, the hard-throwing Perry never fulfilled the major league closer potential many projected for him on draft day. The Nationals, who acquired him in 2012, were never able to get him to rein in his command, while injuries started to take their toll as well. He made just six appearances in the minors this season before the organization released him.
