Royals' Salvador Perez: Won't need rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (oblique) will play as soon as he is capable and will not require a rehab assignment, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports Monday.

The question will be how Perez's side responds to the swings he took Monday. Perez is ready to go behind the plate, so expect him to be back in the lineup as soon as he proves his body is up to swinging the bat.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Takes part in catching drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (oblique) performed catching drills Sunday with no visible limitations, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

After doing some throwing on the field over the last couple of days, Perez took another step forward Sunday by getting behind the plate for drills. Perez's ability to swing the bat remains the biggest roadblock in his recovery from the right intercostal strain, so until he's able to take batting practice without discomfort, his activation from the disabled list shouldn't be considered imminent.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Feels good after second throwing session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (intercostal) felt good Saturday after playing catch for the second time in three day, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

The All-Star catcher said he felt no discomfort after stretching, throwing and doing a light cardio workout Saturday. "I don't feel anything with the throwing," he said after stretching it out to 120 feet. Perez's next step will be to take swings, something that could begin as early as next week. Despite the progress, the 27-year-old who is eligible to be activated Tuesday, is well behind the initial 2-to-3 week timeline.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Plays catch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (intercostal) played catch on the field Thursday for the first time since landing on the DL, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Perez continues to steadily work his way back from an intercostal strain, and Thursday marked another important step in his recovery. He'll continue to ramp up his baseball activities in the coming weeks as he keeps his eyes set on a return to action sometime during the second half of August. While he remains on the shelf, Drew Butera will continue to serve as the Royals' primary backstop.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Swelling goes down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ned Yost said Perez (intercostal) is expected to be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks after being reexamined Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Perez was initially expected to miss around a month with the injury, so this is welcomed news for the Royals' backstop. In the meantime, Drew Butera will continue to see the bulk of starts behind the dish while Perez is sidelined.
