  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Dealing with groin strain

    Perez said Monday that an MRI revealed a Grade 1 groin strain, and he hopes to play Tuesday against the White Sox, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Perez will sit out after being pulled from Sunday's game. He noted that he's experiencing no pain in the area, and he attempted to lobby Royals manager Matt Quatraro to play Monday. Perez has started the season strong, slashing .339/.369/.565 with four home runs and 15 RBI over 65 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Sitting out Monday's game

    Perez (groin/hip) is not in the lineup for Monday's contest versus the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Perez departed Sunday's game against the Mets with left groin and hip injuries. Catcher Logan Porter has joined the Royals in Chicago as part of the taxi squad, per Rogers, in case Perez's injury winds up being more of a day-to-day situation. The Royals are expected to provide more clarity on Perez later Monday. Freddy Fermin is getting the start at catcher against the White Sox.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Managing groin, hip issues

    Perez was removed from Sunday's game against the Mets with left groin and hip injuries, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Perez started at catcher Sunday and went 1-for-2 with a double before being lifted from the contest after a collision at home plate. The specifics of the injury are unclear, so the 33-year-old should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener versus the White Sox.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Pops 250th career homer

    Perez went 2-for-5 with a home run and four total RBI in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Perez's hit in the fourth inning was initially ruled a double, but it was overturned to a home run upon review, as the tape showed that the ball was deflected by Brandon Nimmo over the left-field wall at Citi Field. It was the fourth homer of the season for Perez and the 250th of his illustrious career. Perez is still the leader in the Kansas City clubhouse and continues to play nearly every day between catcher and first base.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Provides lone run in loss

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Mets.

    Perez was responsible for the Royals' only run and one of their three hits when he took Luis Severino deep in the second inning. Perez continues to hit well in the cleanup spot, batting .327 with an .871 OPS, three homers, 11 RBI, seven runs scored and a double over 14 contests. With the Royals playing well early on, Perez's success should lead to an increase in counting stats after he had 80 RBI and 59 runs scored over 140 games last year.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Perfect at plate Friday

    Perez went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk in Friday's 2-1 win over the White Sox.

    Perez turned in his third three-hit game of the season, but it was his walk that set up the go-ahead run -- he was replaced by pinch runner Dairon Blanco, who stole second and scored on an MJ Melendez single in the eighth inning. Perez is batting .387 with two home runs, nine RBI, one double and four runs scored over 33 plate appearances for a strong start to 2024.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Three hits, two RBI in win

    Perez went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles.

    Perez had RBI singles in his first two at-bats of the game. The catcher has racked up nine hits over the last four contests, and he's added eight RBI in that span. He was a little quiet to start the season, but it's taken little time for him to get into form. Perez looks set to see a near everyday role between catcher, designated hitter and first base, and he's batted cleanup in every game so far.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers again Monday

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Perez went 0-for-7 over the first two games of the season, but he's now homered twice and driven in six runs over the last two contests. The catcher is dialed in and has little risk of losing playing time -- he's started behind the dish three times and played at first base in his other game. Perez could also be the designated hitter on occasion, but manager Matt Quatraro looks committed to getting his bat in the lineup a vast majority of the time.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Three hits, including homer in win

    Perez went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer, four RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-0 win over the Twins.

    Perez started off the game with a splash, launching a three-run home run off Minnesota starter Bailey Ober in the first inning, driving in teammates Bobby Witt and Vinnie Pasquantino in the process. He later added an RBI single in the second inning and another base knock in the third frame. Perez came into Sunday hitless through the first two games of the season, so he'll look to build off his impressive performance moving forward.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Slow start in spring

    Perez went 1-for-12 over his first four Cactus League games.

    Perez's slow start in spring is of no concern -- per Anne Rogers of MLB.com, Perez is still the Royals' starting catcher. It's very possible the continued growth of Freddy Fermin could lead to fewer games behind the dish for Perez in 2024. He appeared in a career-high 52 games somewhere other than catcher last season, including 23 contests at first base, though that position belongs to Vinnie Pasquantino. Perez is unlikely to be an everyday player, but it's not unusual to see him get into 140 games when he stays healthy.
