    • Perez will undergo lateral collateral ligament reconstruction on his thumb Tuesday, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports. The veteran catcher finished 2018 batting a career-low .237 with a .719 OPS that was 73 points lower than his 2017 mark. There's no word yet on how long Perez's rehab will be at this time, but that figures to come into focus after his procedure.

    • Royals' Salvador Perez: Will DH rest of weekend
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez is expected to serve as the designated hitter for the remainder of the season after suffering a minor thumb injury, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. With Perez limited to the designated hitter slot, look for Cameron Gallagher and Meibrys Viloria to get the nod behind the dish for the final games of the 2018 campaign. Even with the Royals out of playoff contention, Perez will attempt to tough it out for the last weekend of the regular season.

    • Royals' Salvador Perez: Back in lineup Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Perez (thumb) returns to the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates. Perez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a lingering thumb soreness, an issue that dates back to early September when he missed seven games with a thumb sprain. He's back in action Wednesday, catching and batting cleanup, though it wouldn't be surprising if the issue requires more maintenance in the future.
