Royals' Salvador Perez: Lands on 7-day concussion IL
Perez was placed on the 7-day injured list Monday with a concussion.
The Royals said initially that Perez avoided a concussion when he was removed from Saturday's game versus the Astros following a foul tip to the mask. However, some symptoms must have cropped up since then, forcing Perez to the IL. Perez will be eligible for activation Sunday, but as is the case with all players recovering from concussions, it's difficult to project when he might be ready. With Freddy Fermin (finger) out for the season, the Royals are left with Logan Porter and Tyler Cropley as their available catchers.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Salvador Perez: Notches three hits Wednesday
Perez went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's 7-1 win over the White Sox.
Perez has logged multiple hits in five of his 11 games in September, and he's now batting .319 (15-for-47) this month. While his contact is up, he's not hitting for a lot of power -- he has just two extra-base hits in September, and both were home runs Sept. 1. The catcher is at a .253/.293/.415 slash line with 21 home runs, 69 RBI, 55 runs scored and 19 doubles through 131 contests overall, numbers largely similar to his 114-game 2022 campaign....

Royals' Salvador Perez: Three hits in loss
Perez went 3-for-5 with one RBI in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Perez has a trio of multi-hit efforts over his six games in September, going 8-for-27 (.296) with seven RBI in that span. With Freddy Fermin (finger) going on the injured list for what could be a season-ending injury, Perez will likely move back behind the dish on a more permanent basis. The 33-year-old veteran has a .249/.289/.418 slash line with 21 home runs, 64 RBI, 53 runs scored and 19 doubles over 126 contests in what's been a bit of a down year.... See More ... See Less

Perez went 3-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI in Friday's win over Boston.
Perez was dealing with some back/neck soreness earlier this week but showed no signs of it Friday as he smacked a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run blast in the sixth. The veteran catcher had been stuck in a 10-for-49 (.204) funk since his last home run Aug. 14. He's now slashing .250/.293/.427 with 40 extra-base hits and 61 RBI through 499 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less

Perez got the scoring started with his first-inning blast and added a tying run on his sac fly in the ninth. The catcher has been all-or-nothing lately with three multi-hit efforts and three 0-fers in his last six games. Overall, he's at a .251/.295/.437 slash line with 19 homers, 53 RBI, 46 runs scored and 19 doubles through 107 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Salvador Perez: Huge night in win
Perez went 4-for-4 with one double, a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in Friday's victory over the Cardinals.
Perez opened the floodgates for Kansas City with a two-run double in the first, then followed with a solo home run in the second to put the Royals up by nine. Perez now has 17 home runs on the season but has been struggling since the start of June, entering the game with a .204 batting average to go along with just five homers and 13 RBI over that stretch. Perhaps this performance will help springboard the 33-year-old veteran to a big finish to his season.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Salvador Perez: Sitting out Monday
Perez (hand) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox.
Though he'll be on the bench for the series opener at Fenway Park, Perez appears to have avoided a major injury scare after he was removed from Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Phillies when he was hit in the left hand by a pitch. X-rays later cleared Perez of any structural damage, so he'll be viewed as day-to-day while he heals up from the hand contusion. With Perez on the bench Monday, Freddy Fermin will start behind the plate while Matt Beaty gets the nod at first base.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Salvador Perez: Escapes with bruised hand
Perez was diagnosed with a bruised left hand after exiting Sunday's game against the Phillies after two innings, Jaylon T. Thompson of The Kansas City Star reports.
While serving as the Royals' starting catcher Sunday, Perez went 1-for-1 with a base hit and a run before leaving the contest following his second plate appearance of the day, when he was hit in the hand by a pitch. Fortunately for the veteran backstop, initial scans ruled out any structural damage. Perez could be dealing with soreness or swelling to the hand, however, making it uncertain if he'll be ready to return to the lineup for Monday's series opener in Boston.... See More ... See Less

Freddy Fermin has taken over behind the plate, which forced the Royals to give up the designated hitter for the remainder of Sunday's contest. Perez is likely to undergo precautionary X-rays and should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers in back-to-back games
Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 5-3 win over the Guardians.
Perez's sixth-inning blast gave the Royals enough of a cushion to secure the win. The catcher has gone deep in back-to-back games since he snapped a 19-game power drought. He's hitting just .214 (12-for-56) in July, a slump that's dropped him to a .246/.287/.438 slash line with 17 homers, 43 RBI, 40 runs scored and 15 doubles through 90 contests overall....

The home run snapped an 0-for-16 skid for the 33-year-old Perez. He's now slashing .246/.288/.431 with 41 RBI and 39 runs scored through 365 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
