Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

The catcher went deep in his second at bat of the season, as he was activated earlier in the day after missing the first 20 games of the year with a Grade 2 MCL tear. Manager Ned Yost could elect to take it somewhat cautiously with Perez and give the 27-year-old more days off than usual at first, but it's encouraging to see him off to a good start now at full health.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Exits after taking liner off foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy was diagnosed with a foot bruise after being hit in the right foot by a line drive during Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Maria Torres of The Kansas City Star reports.

The line drive off the bat of Ryan Braun was hit at 106 mph, and although Kennedy was able to finish the inning he allowed a three-run home run to Travis Shaw before exiting the game. The 33-year-old should be considered day-to-day for now, but he seems likely to be available for Sunday's expected start against the White Sox considering the X-rays came back negative.

Royals' Drew Butera: Set for decreased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Butera is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Brewers, 610 Sports Radio reports.

Butera had been starting semi-regularly to start the season, but he'll move back into a bench role with Salvador Perez back from the disabled list. The 34-year-old can be dropped in nearly every league now given how frequently Perez suits up behind the plate.

Royals' Eric Stout: Joins big club Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stout was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Stout will take Justin Grimm's spot on the active roster and in the bullpen for the time being, as Grimm was sent to the DL on Tuesday with lower back stiffness. The 25-year-old Stout owns an unremarkable 4.70 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 7.2 innings of relief with Omaha this season, though he posted a much more respectable 2.99 ERA across 69.1 innings with the Storm Chasers in 2017. Look for him to fill a middle-relief role during his time with the Royals.

Royals' Paulo Orlando: Heads back to Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orlando was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

Orlando enjoyed a stretch of increased playing time, but with Alex Gordon returning from the disabled list, the 32-year-old will head back to the minors. His stats in the minors have been fine, but Orlando hasn't been able to produce in the big leagues the past two seasons, putting up a batting average below the Mendoza line each of the past two years.
