  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Knocks homer in loss

    Perez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Red Sox.

    Perez heads into the All-Star break 11-for-31 (.355) with three homers and eight RBI during his active eight-game hitting streak. The catcher is up to 17 homers on the year, giving him a good chance of surpassing the 23 he hit in each of the last two campaigns. He's added 62 RBI, 38 runs scored, 16 doubles and a .282/.343/.477 slash line over 94 contests.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: In Saturday's lineup

    Perez (cramps) will serve as Kansas City's designated hitter and bat fourth Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Perez had to leave Friday's contest in the eighth inning due to cramping, but he seems to be feeling well enough to hit Saturday while Freddy Fermin starts behind the dish. Perez is currently enjoying a six-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 8-for-23 with two homers and seven RBI.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Exits due to cramps

    Perez was removed from Friday's game against the Red Sox due to cramping.

    The Royals didn't specify where exactly Perez was hurting, but he was apparently in enough discomfort to warrant his removal in the eighth inning. His status for Saturday's contest is unclear, though it's possible he receives a day off in order to manage the issue.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers in each game of twin bill

    Perez went 3-for-7 with two home runs and four RBI over both games of Wednesday's doubleheader sweep of St. Louis.

    Perez started at catcher in Game 1 and recorded a 424-foot solo homer along with an RBI single. He was back in the lineup at DH in Game 2 and belted another solo shot while adding a sacrifice fly. Perez is up to 16 long balls on the campaign, tied for third most among MLB backstops. He's also tied for the lead among catchers with 59 RBI.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Launches 14th home run

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in Sunday's win against Cleveland.

    Perez belted his 14th home run of the season Sunday, adding a third RBI on a fielder's choice. The 34-year-old had a rough June in which he batted just .194, but Perez remains one of the most reliable catchers in fantasy. On the season, Perez is batting .281 with 14 home runs, 16 doubles and 32 runs scored in 83 games played.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Slugs 13th homer

    Perez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI in Friday's 10-3 victory over the Guardians.

    The veteran Royal crushed a titanic 447-foot solo homer off Triston McKenzie in the second inning to tie the game at 1-1. Perez later tallied an additional RBI with a single to drive Maikel Garcia home in the third. The 34-year-old Perez appears to be heating up this homestand, hitting .368 (7-for-19) with two homers over the past five games.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Ends slump Monday

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-1 win over the Marlins.

    Perez had gone 0-for-14 over his previous four games, and he'd gone seven contests without an extra-base hit. Both droughts ended when the catcher went back-to-back with Vinnie Pasquantino in the fourth inning, with Perez's homer serving as the decisive run. A poor June -- 11-for-57 (.157) over 20 games -- has taken some of the shine off of what was a strong start to the year for Perez. He's now slashing .280/.352/.462 with 12 homers, 46 RBI, 29 runs scored and 15 doubles through 77 contests.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Back in lineup as DH

    Perez (knee) will start at designated hitter and bat cleanup in Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

    Perez is battling a right knee sprain, but it's said to be relatively minor. He'll play through the injury Sunday, albeit in a non-defensive role. It's uncertain when he may return to catching duties. The team recalled Austin Nola from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, and Nola's presence on the roster affords Perez and the Royals some time to get him right before he slots back in behind the plate.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Removed with knee discomfort

    Perez was pulled from Friday's game against the Dodgers due to right knee discomfort.

    Perez hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to give Kansas City a 3-0 lead, but his knee caused him to come out of the game during the eighth. It's unclear how severe the backstop's injury is, but the Royals should know more before Saturday's contest. If he does have to miss any amount of time, Freddy Fermin would be the next man up as Kansas City's main catcher.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Could be back Sunday

    Perez has a right knee sprain but is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers or Tuesday against Oakland, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    An MRI revealed Perez is dealing with just a minor sprain and some inflammation in his right knee, which is encouraging news after he was pulled from Friday's game against Los Angeles. While Perez is expected to be back in the lineup as soon as Sunday, it's possible he'll DH for a few games to get his knee back to full strength, especially after the Royals called up Austin Nola on Saturday.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: On bench Saturday

    Perez (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

    Perez was pulled from Friday's game with right knee discomfort and will be held out of the lineup Saturday, giving way to Freddy Fermin behind the dish. While it's unclear how severe Perez's injury is, the Royals felt the need to call up catcher Austin Nola from Triple-A Omaha, indicating Perez could miss multiple games.
