  • Salvador Perez Drives In Four Runs

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez has been on a tear at the plate since returning from the injured list. On Thursday, he went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the win over the Boston Red Sox. The veteran catcher smacked an RBI single in the fifth inning off Nick Pivetta. He followed that up with a three-run homer that hit off the left field foul pole in the seventh inning. Perez has four home runs in his last seven games, so fantasy managers better make sure to keep him in their lineups.

  • Salvador Perez Blasts Homer In Return

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez returned to the lineup with a bang during Friday's contest against the New York Yankees. The veteran catcher had been sidelined since June 24th due to the fact he needed surgery on his thumb. Now, Perez is back and wasted little time making his presence known. He went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during the loss to the Yankees. The 424-foot blast came in the fifth inning off ace pitcher Gerrit Cole. The 32-year-old is hitting .211/.254/.436 with 12 homers and 37 RBI this season. Hopefully this game was a sign of good things to come for Perez.

  • Salvador Perez Reinstated From Injured List

    The Kansas City Royals reinstated catcher Salvador Perez (thumb) from the injured list on Friday and optioned infielder Emmanuel Rivera to Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move. Perez is back behind the plate and is batting third on Friday against New York Yankees right-hander Gerrit Cole. The 32-year-old veteran had surgery to fix the UCL in his left thumb on June 24, and he was originally expected to be out around eight weeks. Fantasy managers will be hoping that Perez can be more consistent at the plate than he was in the first half of the season, when he slashed .211/.254/.426 with 11 home runs, 34 RBI and 25 runs scored in 236 plate appearances over 57 games.

  • Salvador Perez Expected To Rejoin Team Soon

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez (thumb) should get some more at-bats in a minor league game on Thursday, but manager Mike Matheny said that Perez is tracking towards a return to the team soon. Perez began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday after taking batting practice over the weekend, and there's a chance the 32-year-old backstop could return to the Royals lineup at some point this weekend. He's been out since June 24 after having surgery on his left thumb. Perez was initially anticipated to miss around eight weeks, but it looks like he'll return well before that timetable. When he's activated, he'll return to a .211/.254/.426 slash line, 11 home runs, 34 RBI and 25 runs scored this year.

  • Salvador Perez To Begin Rehab Assignment Tuesday

    Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday. The 32-year-old underwent surgery to repair a torn UCL in his left thumb in late June. He was originally given a timeline of eight weeks, but it looks like he's on track to beat that estimate, assuming he can avoid setbacks. While we don't have an official timetable for Perez's return, it's unlikely he'll be at Triple-A more than a week or so, meaning we could conceivably see him back in the majors before the month of July is even over.

  • Salvador Perez Progressing Toward Rehab Assignment

    According to Lynn Worthy of the Kansas City Star, Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez (thumb) is nearing a return to the field. Per an article from Worthy on July 24, "Royals manager Mike Matheny ... indicated star catcher Salvador Perez continues to progress toward a minor-league rehab assignment of his own." Worthy's article also mentions that Perez has recently taken batting practice and caught bullpen sessions. The veteran's eventual return would certainly be a welcome sign for fantasy managers who have struggled to replace his production at catcher. In 236 plate appearances this season, the veteran is batting .211 with a .254 on-base percentage and 11 home runs.
