Watch Now:

Perez, who is starting Saturday's game, will get Sunday off and will likely get another day off next week as well, the Kansas City Star's Rustin Dodd reports.

He is returning Saturday from a quadriceps contusion, but it sounds like the Royals will be careful with Perez in the next few weeks. He'll sit Sunday, start Monday, and then likely get another day off next week. Still, this only means Perez is on the same schedule as almost every other starting catcher in baseball. In a week or two, he'll be back to playing almost every day.
