Royals' Salvador Perez: Set for thumb surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Tuesday.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

Perez was going to be limited to serving as designated hitter for the season's final series but will instead get Saturday off. Ryan O'Hearn will be the Royals' designated hitter against the Indians as Hunter Dozier starts at first base.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Will DH rest of weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Leaves yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Tigers on Saturday.

Perez took Tigers closer Shane Greene deep in the ninth inning, but Kansas City failed to deliver further offense against him. The backstop has homered 27 times and plated 77 runs this season to prop up a sluggish .232/.272/.438 line.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Back in lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
