Left-hander Oliver Perez tells ESPNDeportes.com that he intends to begin pitching in winter ball in early November in his hometown of Culiacan in Mexico.

Perez has barely been used by the Mets, having made only one appearance this month. He has only pitched in five games since returning from the disabled list during the second-half-opening trip to the West Coast.

Perez is owed $12 million next season the final year of his three-year, $36 million contract.
