Perez went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays. Perez did his part, launching a two-run shot in the first inning before mashing a solo blast in the fourth, but Kansas City still came up short 6-5. The veteran backstop is now over the 20-home run plateau for a fourth straight season, and after three multi-hit efforts in four games, his average (.237) -- while still disappointing -- is the highest its been in over two months.
Perez went 2-for-5 with a run, an RBI and two doubles in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays. Perez hit an RBI double in the third inning and later slashed another double, giving him 17 on the year. Although Perez's slash line is a bit disappointing (.232/.273/.424) he still ranks third in home runs (19) and fourth in RBI (56) among all MLB catchers.
Perez went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the 8-2 loss to St. Louis on Sunday. Kansas City couldn't muster up much offense against Tyson Ross and Perez was the only Royal with a multi-hit effort. He's still batting just .232 on the year, a considerable drop-off from his career .267 average.
Perez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Twins. His first-inning shot off Lance Lynn gave the Royals a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Perez now has 14 homers on the year, putting him on pace top top 20 for the fourth year in a row, but his .223/.262/.405 slash line remains well below his usual standards.
Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in a win over the White Sox on Saturday. Not long after the end of this one, Perez was named the American League's starting catcher for the All-Star Game due to Wilson Ramos' impending placement on the disabled list. His 13th blast of the year was the second in his last three starts, and he's riding a five-game hitting streak, though it's pushed him to an uninspiring .221/.259/.396 line through Saturday's action.
