Royals' Salvador Perez: Hits timely grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 3-for-3 with a grand slam during Wednesday's win over Boston.

Perez's 15th blast of the season put Kansas City ahead for good and sealed Wednesday's victory. The backstop sports an impressive .292/.324/.533 slash line and is on track to post a career year. Additionally, he entered Wednesday's game leading all catchers in plate appearances (253), so Perez's fantasy floor is higher than most of his peers.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Collects 17th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 17th save of the season during Wednesday's win over Boston.

Herrera has now converted four consecutive save opportunities and hasn't allowed a run through his past six appearances (5.2 innings). There have been a number of hiccups over the course of the season, and Herrera's 4.50 ERA and 1.23 WHIP aren't strong fantasy numbers. However, as long as he's closing out ball games, he's worth a roster spot in all settings.

Royals' Joakim Soria: Collects win against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soria (3-2) pitched a scoreless eighth inning to collect his third win of the season during Wednesday's victory over Boston.

The veteran reliever hasn't posted great numbers this season with a 3.41 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, but his supporting numbers are spectacular: 11.8 K/9, 60.5 groundball percentage and 1.74 FIP. Soria's been hurt by an unsustainably high .377 BABIP and has the potential to be a serviceable fantasy asset going forward. He's also likely next in line for saves if Kelvin Herrera is injured or losses the closer job.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Lasts just 4.2 against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy allowed four runs -- two earned -- on three hits and three walks while striking out four batters through just 4.2 innings during Wednesday's win over Boston. He didn't factor into the decision.

The 32-year-old veteran is having a rough season and is struggling to move the fantasy needle. He owns a 4.95 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 7.6 K/9, and his 5.60 FIP suggests the troubles are likely to continue for Kennedy. He projects to face the Tigers at Comerica Park in his next start.

Royals' Nathan Karns: Progressing slowly in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Karns (forearm) "feels normal," but has yet to progress beyond playing catch,Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.

It's been a slow road back for the right-hander, who has been out since mid-May with the injury and was shut down earlier this month amidst his recovery program. On the bright side, Karns has begun throwing again and appears ready to ramp up his activity if all continues to go well. Expect him to make a minor-league rehab assignment before he returns to the Royals' rotation sometime in July.
