Royals' Salvador Perez: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 0-for-3 in Friday's Cactus League game, his first game action since March 6.

Perez has been hampered by knee inflammation and a hyperextended left elbow, but it appears all systems are go at this point. The Royals will likely give him plenty of at-bats within the coming week as he prepares for Opening Day. Perez is aiming to earn a fifth consecutive All-Star nod after slamming a career-high 22 home runs over 139 games last season.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Will DH on Wednesday, catch over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (elbow), who is serving as the team's DH for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Padres, is expected to catch in games Friday and Saturday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Perez hurt his knee during a collision at home plate during the World Baseball Classic, but that injury is no longer concern, and it's instead a hyperextended left elbow that's presenting more trouble at this time. However, it seems he's just about healed up now, and once he gets behind the plate for about six innings in the two games over the weekend, he should be considered ready to go for the start of the season. The Royals are once again preparing to hand Perez one of the heftier workloads at catcher this season, which should help him in racking up counting stats.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Expected to DH on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (knee/elbow) is scheduled to DH on Wednesday and play catch on Friday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

This will be his first action back since hyperextending his left knee during a World Baseball Classic game, though the 26-year-old will only be able slot in as the DH due to an elbow injury that he is also dealing with. Neither of the injuries is thought to be serious, however, and barring any setbacks, Perez still expects to be ready for Opening Day.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Also dealing with elbow ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to manager Ned Yost, Perez (knee/elbow) also hyperextended his left elbow a bit in the collision that removed him from WBC play, which could keep him out for a week, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

The Royals don't seem overly concerned with the backstopper's knee anymore, and it seems like this elbow issue will ultimately cost him more time than the knee injury. Either way, Perez is still projected to be back to full health relatively quickly and expects to be completely ready for Opening Day.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Second MRI comes back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez's second MRI was returned negative, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Perez was said to be in good spirits Wednesday, having avoided a serious injury as a result of a collision in Saturday's WBC game. The initial MRI showed inflammation in the knee but no structural damage, and the follow-up test confirmed that diagnosis. While Perez is uncertain when exactly he may return to games, he is confident he will be good to go for the start of the regular season.
