  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Out with Grade 2 hamstring strain

    Gallagher was diagnosed with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain and was placed on the 10-day injured list after Sunday's loss to the Yankees, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Gallagher went 1-for-1 prior to tweaking his hamstring Sunday, and he'll now be sidelined for the foreseeable future. MJ Melendez was called up from Triple-A Omaha to serve as the backup catcher to Salvador Perez.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Tweaks hamstring Sunday

    Gallagher was diagnosed with a strained left hamstring after exiting Sunday's game against the Yankees.

    Gallagher went 1-for-1 with an RBI single before departing the game in the bottom of the fourth inning following his second plate appearance, when he appeared to tweak his hamstring while running out a sacrifice hit. Though the Royals are labeling Gallagher as day-to-day, there's a good chance that he lands on the 10-day injured list.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Suffers apparent hamstring injury

    Gallagher was removed in the bottom of the fourth of Sunday's game against the Yankees with an apparent hamstring injury, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. He went 1-for-1 with an RBI single before departing.

    Making a start at catcher while No. 1 backstop Salvador Perez serves as the designated hitter, Gallagher could't make it through half of the game before he was forced to exit. He looked to be grabbing at his hamstring while he ran out a sacrifice bunt in the fourth inning, with Gallagher checking out of the contest for a pinch runner upon reaching base. The Royals will re-evaluate Gallagher after Sunday's contest, but if he's in any danger of landing on the injured list, expect Kansas City to call up another catcher from the minors.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Picks up first start

    Gallagher will start at catcher and bat ninth Tuesday against the Cardinals.

    The Royals will give top backstop Salvador Perez a day out of the field and deploy him at designated hitter, opening up catching duties for Gallagher for the first time all season. Perez is expected to handle one of the bigger workloads among all No. 1 catchers this season, so Gallagher may struggle to get more than one start even in seven-game weeks when Perez is healthy.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Agrees to terms

    Gallagher signed a one-year, $885,000 contract with the Royals on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Gallagher will get a modest raise in his first year of arbitration eligibility. He didn't have to do much as Salvador Perez's backup last season, hitting .250/.298/.330 with one homer in 48 games, and he's unlikely to fill a significant role this year, either.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Activated from injured list

    Gallagher (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Tuesday's game against Cleveland.

    Gallagher moved to the injured list Sept. 5 with left knee inflammation, but he was able to begin a rehab stint with Triple-A Omaha over the weekend. He went 2-for-7 with one RBI and two runs scored across two games. With Sebastian Rivero being optioned to open up a spot on the 28-man roster, Gallagher will serve as Salvador Perez's lone backup during the final 11 games of the season.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Embarks on rehab stint

    Gallagher (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    The backstop went on the injured list Sept. 5 with left knee inflammation, but he's now set to resume playing in live games just 13 days later. Gallagher figures to get two or three games under his belt with Omaha before returning to Kansas City's active roster at some point next week.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Heads to IL

    Gallagher (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Left knee inflammation resulted in Gallagher's removal from Saturday's game and will now sideline him for at least 10 days. It's unclear if he's dealing with a more substantial injury, but such details should become available shortly. Sebastian Rivero will handle the backup catching duties until Gallagher returns.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Exits with left knee issue

    Gallagher was removed from Saturday's game against the White Sox with left knee inflammation, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Gallagher started Saturday's game behind the dish and went 1-for-1 with a run and an RBI. He was replaced in the top of the fifth inning, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Sunday's series finale against the White Sox.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Blasts late home run

    Gallagher went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-2 win over the Cubs.

    Gallagher entered Friday's game as a defensive replacement in the bottom of the eighth inning after Salvador Perez (neck) suffered an injury. The 28-year-old gave the Royals some insurance during his lone at-bat in the top of the ninth inning by hitting his first homer of 2021. Gallagher has had sporadic playing time but is in line for increased at-bats if Perez misses any additional games.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Hits double in rare start

    Gallagher went 1-for-4 with a double in Friday's 4-2 loss to St. Louis.

    Salvador Perez was scratched with an illness Friday, so Gallagher made a rare start behind the dish. Since he was activated from the injured list July 16, Gallagher has logged just 20 plate appearances, and his double Friday was his first hit in that span. The backup catcher could get another start Saturday if Perez isn't out from under the weather.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Returns from injured list

    Gallagher (shoulder) was activated off the injured list Friday.

    Gallagher wound up missing a month with a right shoulder impingement. He'll return to his role as Salvador Perez's backup behind the plate, though that's not a role that comes with much playing time -- Perez has started 70 games at catcher this season, tied for second most in the league. Sebastian Rivero was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Begins rehab assignment

    Gallagher (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

    Gallagher has been sidelined since mid-June due to a right shoulder impingement, but his recovery progress has gone smoothly so far, and he participated in catching drills while dressed in full gear Wednesday. The 28-year-old will return to minor-league game action Thursday, and he could rejoin the major-league club in the near future.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Participates in catching drills

    Gallagher (shoulder) participated in drills while dressed in full gear Wednesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Gallagher resumed playing catch at the end of June, and he got some throws in from behind the plate during pregame warmups Wednesday. It's still not clear when the 28-year-old could return to game action, but he's made good progress in his recovery so far.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Playing catch again

    Royals manager Mike Matheny said Sunday that Gallagher (shoulder) has resumed playing catch and is "moving in a good direction" in his recovery, MLB.com reports.

    Since Gallagher has yet to resume full baseball activities, he's unlikely to return from the 10-day injured list this weekend, but he could still have a chance at being ready to play before the All-Star break. Gallagher posted a .471 OPS in 56 plate appearances before landing on the shelf June 20 with an inflamed right shoulder.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Out with shoulder injury

    Gallagher was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder impingement. The move is retroactive to June 17.

    Gallagher hasn't seen game action since Wednesday, so the transaction will be backdated by a few days. The 28-year-old is without a timetable for his return but will be eligible to be activated next Sunday. Sebastian Rivero was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move and will serve as the backup to Salvador Perez.

  • Royals' Cam Gallagher: Warming up

    Gallagher has gone 6-for-15 (.400) in his last six games.

    The 28-year-old sees only a small share of playing time as backup to Salvador Perez. Gallagher has shown some improvement in recent games, but just two of his 10 hits this season have gone for extra bases (both doubles). He's slashing only .227/.271/.273 with no home runs, one RBI and three runs scored across 49 plate appearances.
