GIF: Salvador Perez throws runner out from knees, tips cap to dugout

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

Royals catcher and perfume-wearer Salvador Perez is one of the best catchers in baseball by just about any measure. The 24-year-old went into Thursday night's game hitting .265 with a career-high 15 home runs, and he also has a cannon for arm.

Don't believe me? Perez threw out 20-stolen base man Brian Dozier from his knees in the ninth inning of a tie game on Thursday. He was out by a mile too. To the action footage:

First things first: holy smokes what a throw. That was absolutely perfect.

Also, be sure to note the tip of the cap to his teammates in the home dugout. If I made a play like that, you can bet I'd want to gloat a bit. What a stud this kid is.
