Royals' Cam Gallagher: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher will miss at least the next seven days after taking two foul tips off his mask during Sunday's contest. Sebastian Rivero was recalled to take Gallagher's spot.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Gets first start of 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Angels.

Kansas City is wrapping up its series with the Angels with a day game after a night game, so Gallagher will check in behind the dish for the first time all season in place of No. 1 catcher Salvador Perez. The Royals will still keep Perez's bat in the lineup as a designated hitter Wednesday, and he'll likely continue to shoulder one of the heavier workloads in baseball among catchers. As a result, Gallagher likely won't have the opportunity to play more than once a week when Perez is healthy.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Shifts to reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Since Salvador Perez (eye) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Gallagher has predictably moved back into a reserve role. He'll be on the bench for the fifth straight game Wednesday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher got the Royals on the board by launching his first long ball of the season with a two-run shot off Dakota Hudson in the third inning. Across 11 games, the 27-year-old backstop is slashing .318/.423/.545 with four runs scored and a pair of RBI.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Resting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Though he'll be getting a day off as Meibrys Viloria steps in behind the dish for the series finale, Gallagher has stepped in as the Royals' primary catcher since Salvador Perez (eye) was placed on the injured list. Gallagher started in three of the Royals' previous four contests, going 2-for-7 with two walks and a run.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals activated Gallagher from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday.

Fellow catcher Oscar Hernandez was designated for assignment in a corresponding move, clearing the way for Gallagher to take over as the No. 2 backstop behind Salvador Perez. While Perez will see the bulk of the work behind the dish, Gallagher will draw the start at catcher in the series finale Sunday with the White Sox while Perez receives a turn at first base, per Alec Lewis of The Athletic.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (illness) remains on Kansas City's COVID-19 injured list, but he's joined the team in Detroit ahead of Monday's series opener with the Tigers and is listed as a member of the taxi squad, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher's presence with the team suggests he's been fully cleared of the coronavirus after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month, but he may need to complete a few more workouts before the Royals are comfortable activating him. Once he's officially added to the 30-man active roster, Gallagher should serve as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Salvador Perez.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher has tested positive for COVID-19, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gallagher played in the team's intrasquad game Friday and said he felt great, but he found out Saturday that he tested positive for COVID-19. The 27-year-old is asymptomatic, but he'll need to self-isolate and have two tests come back negative before MLB protocol allows him to rejoin the team.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Set for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher is poised to begin the season as Kansas City's No. 2 catcher after Meibrys Viloria was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on March 10, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Salvador Perez missed the entire 2019 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but the team signed Martin Maldonado -- who has since been traded to Houston -- and Gallagher received only 145 plate appearances in 45 games. Following the demotion of Viloria, Gallagher is the only backstop on the major-league roster besides Perez and figures to serve as the backup catcher. Gallagher had a .292/.320/.375 slash line with two doubles in nine contests prior to the suspension of spring training.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Starting spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) is starting behind the plate in Friday's Cactus League opener against the Rangers.

The 27-year-old was nursing an oblique issue but will start in the spring opener while Salvador Perez serves as the designated hitter. Gallagher is competing for the backup catching job with Meibrys Viloria in spring training.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) was officially activated from the injured list Sunday. He isn't included in the lineup for the Royals' series finale with the Orioles.

Gallagher had been sidelined since Aug. 7 with an oblique injury and is likely set to split time behind the dish with Meibrys Viloria and Nick Dini to close the campaign. For the season, Gallagher is hitting .238/.312/.365 in 45 games.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Expected back Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) is expected to be activated from the injured list Sunday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher has been sidelined since Aug. 7 due to an oblique injury, but he's set to rejoin the Royals once rosters expand Sunday. He'll be eased back into action, likely only catching in emergency situations until he's fully healed. Prior to landing on the IL, the backstop compiled a .238/.312/.365 slash line across 45 games.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Gallagher was scratched from Wednesday's lineup with left side tightness, and further testing revealed the backstop is dealing with a strained oblique and will require a stint on the injured list. Nick Dini had his contract selected from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move and should offer catching depth behind Meibrys Viloria while Gallagher is on the mend.

Royals' Cam Gallagher: Scratched with side issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallagher was scratched from Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with left side tightness, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gallagher apparently picked up the injury during pregame batting practice. Meibrys Viloria is now starting at catcher and hitting seventh in place of Gallagher, who should be considered day-to-day.
