Former Major League Baseball pitcher Pascual Perez was stabbed to death in a home invasion robbery in the Dominican Republic ... this according to multiple local reports.

Perez -- who pitched in the Majors for 11 years -- was reportedly stabbed in the neck during the incident. There is speculation Perez was killed for his MLB pension payment he received before the murder.

Perez played for a slew of MLB teams -- including the Pirates, Braves, Expos and Yankees. He made the All-Star squad back in 1983 -- the same year he had a 3.43 ERA.

Pascual got the nickname "Perimeter Perez" when he got lost on the I-285 while driving himself to a Braves game back in 1982 on a day he was scheduled to start.

So far, it's unclear if anyone has been arrested in connection to the murder.

Perez was 55.

OMG... I am sorta taken back a bit seeing this news. I knew Pascual way back in the days of spring training camp in West Palm Beach with the Atlanta Braves. I dated a friend, team mate and fellow countryman of his, Rafael Ramirez. I don't say this to boast or brag as that was almost 30 years ago... but just to provide backstory. Yes, he had his drug problems that was no secret. But he was a very sweet, kind, gentle and caring man even back then. I can only assume it blossomed later on in life as he conquered the demons of his addiction. Rest in peace friend.... and I will see you later warming up in the bull pen on God's team.
