  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Working behind plate Wednesday

    Fermin will start at catcher and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    He'll be rewarded with his third start in four games after going 4-for-7 with a walk, an RBI and two runs between his previous two turns behind the plate. The Royals will likely continue to make room for Fermin in the lineup when the team opposes left-handed pitching, but his opportunities against right-handers will likely remain more limited while top backstop Salvador Perez is healthy.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Workload picking up

    Fermin will start at catcher and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Rangers.

    Fermin will be behind the dish for the fifth time in seven games while Salvador Perez gets a day off from catching and serves as the Royals' designated hitter. Nelson Velazquez has served as the Royals' primary DH all season, but he's been occupying more of a part-time role of late as manager Matt Quartaro has look to make room in the lineup for Fermin, who has gone 5-for-18 with a solo home run and three walks over his last six games.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Delivers first homer of 2024

    Fermin went 2-for-3 with a solo home run during Monday's 6-5 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Fermin started behind the dish due to Salvador Perez getting the day off. Fermin notched his second multi-hit game of the campaign and his eighth-inning solo home run off Erik Swanson marked Fermin's 10th career long ball. In 47 plate appearances, Fermin is slashing .227/.277/.318 and is striking out at a 10.6 percent clip.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Scores run in win

    Fermin went 2-for-3 with one double and one run in Sunday's win against the White Sox.

    Fermin has totaled 15 at-bats with two runs and three hits over five games played as the main backup to starting catcher Salvador Perez. The 28-year-old hasn't built upon his solid .782 OPS from the 2023 campaign, as Fermin has just a .467 OPS through the small sample this year.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Projected as backup catcher

    Fermin is projected to be the Royals' backup catcher to begin 2024, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    The Royals recently signed Austin Nola, but he's viewed as an experienced depth option. Fermin has gone 1-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout over two Cactus League games. With Salvador Perez in the latter half of his career, it wouldn't be surprising to see Fermin shoulder more of the workload behind the dish, which could see Perez take more games at first base or designated hitter.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Fermin (finger) was transferred to the 60-day injured list from the 10-day IL on Monday.

    The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for fellow catcher Tyler Cropley, whose contract was selected from Omaha. Fermin had already been ruled out for the season following surgery last week to repair a fractured left middle finger.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Season over after finger surgery

    Fermin underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a fractured left middle finger, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Fermin suffered the injury last Friday on a catcher's interference call. He is certainly done for the season, but the hope is that he will be fully healthy by the time spring training rolls around. It's an unfortunate ending to what has been a nice season for Fermin, who batted .281/.321/.461 with nine home runs over 235 plate appearances in 2023. The 28-year-old has positioned himself to open 2024 as Salvador Perez's backup again, or perhaps even take over as starter if the Royals decide to trade Perez over the winter.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Out with broken finger

    Fermin was placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured left middle finger Saturday.

    The Royals haven't given a timeline for Fermin's return, but given the timing, the injury seemingly has a good chance of being season-ending. If that's the case, Fermin will end the year with a .281/.321/.461 line in 70 games, good for a 107 wRC+. Tyler Cropley was called up to take his place on the roster and provide additional catching depth.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Sits after four straight starts

    Fermin is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Fermin appeared to be losing out on playing time as August came to a close, but he started each of the past four games behind the plate, going 5-for-15 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored over that stretch. Salvador Perez will be behind the dish Sunday, but the Royals could continue to open up more starts at catcher for Fermin by deploying Perez at either first base or designated hitter.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Losing out on playing time

    Fermin is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    Fermin seems to have moved into more of a part-time role of late, as he'll hit the bench for the third time in seven games while he's slashed a paltry .107/.129/.143 since Aug. 15. With Salvador Perez picking up more playing time behind the dish rather than at first base or designated hitter of late, Matt Beaty has been gaining more traction in the Royals' everyday lineup.
