Royals' Salvador Perez: Dealing with side issue

Perez is experiencing soreness in his side, but manager Ned Yost said that Monday was a planned day off, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Although Perez isn't in Monday's lineup, Yost's comments make it seem like there's no real issue on the injury front. However, this is something worth monitoring over the next few days, as it could mean that the iron-man catcher could get some extra days off to help him heal more completely. Drew Butera will fill in for him Monday and would be the replacement if this issue continues to linger.
