  • Salvador Perez Enjoying Productive World Baseball Classic

    Kansas City Royals catcherSalvador Perezis enjoying a big World Baseball Classic for Team Venezuela, who sit atop Pool D with a clean 4-0 record for the tournament. The 32-year-old Perez has gone 5-for-10, with four of those hits coming in extra-base variety via a home run and three doubles. The veteran backstop now owns a massive 1.645 OPS in a small three-game sample after a solid start to his spring in Cactus League action with the Royals. Before departing for the World Baseball Classic, Perez hit .313 with one HR and one stolen base alongside a .813 OPS across 16 at-bats. After tyingVladimir Guerrero Jr.for the MLB lead with 48 HR in 2021, Perez predictably regressed to 23 long balls in 2022, albeit in just 114 games. He will once again serve as the Royals' primary catcher in 2023 but will also see a good chunk of time as a designated hitter.

  • MJ Melendez Enjoying Productive Spring

    Kansas City Royals catcher/outfielderMJ Melendezis having himself an excellent spring as he looks to build on a solid rookie showing in 2022. The 24-year-old is hitting .375 with one home run, one stolen base, and a hefty 1.296 OPS across 16 Cactus League at-bats to this point in the spring. Melendez appeared in 129 games with the Royals last season, hitting .217 with an impressive 18 HR, two SB, and a .706 OPS across 534 trips to the plate. The 2017 second-round pick also produced an excellent 12.4% BB% that enabled a 99 wRC+ that came in just 1% below the league average. The versatile youngster will see time at catcher behindSalvador Perezwhile also getting reps in the corner outfield spots in 2023. A strong history of power production in the minors and the aforementioned versatility with the glove make Melendez a solid fantasy asset heading toward the 2023 campaign.
