Royals' Salvador Perez: Hits bench Monday

Perez is out of the lineup Monday against the Red Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Perez boosted his case for an All-Star bid with a three-hit, three-RBI performance Sunday against the Angels, bringing his average up to .286 for the season. He'll just be receiving a breather as backup Drew Butera steps in behind the plate to catch for starting pitcher Jason Hammel.
