    Player Outlook

    When healthy, Salvador Perez is one of the few bell cow catchers left in the league. Unfortunately, he needed a two-week stint on the disabled list in August with a strained intercostal -- his first visit since being concussed in 2013. Despite failing to reach 500 plate appearances for the first time since 2012 (falling one short), Perez set career highs with 27 homers and 80 RBI, while tying 2016's career best 57 runs scored. An increase in HR/FB fueled by a higher hard contact rate drove the power surge. Perez remained allergic to walks, drawing a free pass in just 3.4 percent of his trips to the dish. The 27-year old backstop aggravated his side in September, but is expected to be healthy in the spring. While some regression in power is likely, note his ISO has increased every season since 2013. Not only does Perez play almost every day, he hits high up in the order, making him a great target for those not afraid to invest in a catcher.

    • Royals' Salvador Perez: Out of finale lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez (groin) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks. There had been some hope that Perez would be able to return to action Sunday, but that won't be the case as he'll sit out of the season finale. Drew Butera will serve as the Royals' backstop in his place. Perez hit .268/.297/.495 to go with 27 home runs and 80 RBI this season, both of which are career-high marks for the 27-year-old.

      By RotoWire Staff

    • Royals' Salvador Perez: Held out Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez (groin) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports. Perez injured his groin in Thursday's game, and he will not start Friday as a result. The severity of his injury remains uncertain, but with just a couple games left in the regular season, it's possible he will not start again in 2017. Drew Butera will get the nod Friday in Perez's place.
