Atlanta Brave catcher Eddie Perez withdrew his appeal of a four-game suspension and began serving the penalty Saturday. Because a suspended player can't be replaced on the 25-man roster, the Braves had to recall catcher Pascual Matos from triple-A Richmond and option first baseman Randall Simon to Richmond, where he will have to spend a minimum of 10 days. Perez was suspended and fined $1,000 for triggering a brawl in a game with the Philadelphia Phillies on July 30.

Understudies are expected to excel when plans go awry because that's their job. Eddie Perez is good in the role.

"He's going to be a big leaguer," said Angel General Manager Whitey Herzog, who recently returned from scouting triple-A Vancouver in Albuquerque, N.M. "He might be one year away, he might be 1 1/2 years away. We should know more by July."
