  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Monster day at plate

    Perez went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in a loss against the Orioles on Saturday.

    Perez got the Royals on the board with a three-run homer off Corbin Burnes in the bottom of the sixth and then singled home another two runs in the seventh, almost single-handedly bringing Kansas City back to within one run of Baltimore. It marked the fourth three-hit game of the season for the veteran catcher and his seventh multi-hit performance overall. He's now batting .359 in April with five homers, 18 RBI and nine runs scored.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Hits go-ahead homer in Game 1

    Perez (groin) went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 4-2 win over the White Sox in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

    Perez returned from a Grade 1 left groin strain Wednesday and delivered the key hit in the Royals' matinee win. He also went 0-for-2 with two walks in the nightcap while serving as the designated hitter. He appears good to go moving forward after the injury scare. The veteran catcher is off to a hot start with five homers, 17 RBI, nine runs scored and two doubles while slashing .324/.370/.574 over 18 contests this season.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: In Wednesday's lineup

    Perez (groin) will start at catcher and bat cleanup Wednesday in the first game of a doubleheader with the White Sox.

    Perez missed Monday's 2-0 win after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 left groin strain and had been slated to sit out Tuesday's contest before it was rained out. However, with another day of rest, Perez is back behind the plate for the afternoon game. Freddy Fermin will surely catch the second game Wednesday, but it's possible Perez could play first base or serve as the designated hitter in the nightcap.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Out of Tuesday's lineup

    Perez (groin) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's contest versus the White Sox.

    Perez will miss a second straight start after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 left groin strain. He intends to attempt to play through the injury, but with an afternoon game Wednesday representing the Royals' final game of their road trip, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Perez at least held out until Friday following Thursday's off day. Freddy Fermin will catch Tuesday.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Dealing with groin strain

    Perez said Monday that an MRI revealed a Grade 1 groin strain, and he hopes to play Tuesday against the White Sox, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Perez will sit out after being pulled from Sunday's game. He noted that he's experiencing no pain in the area, and he attempted to lobby Royals manager Matt Quatraro to play Monday. Perez has started the season strong, slashing .339/.369/.565 with four home runs and 15 RBI over 65 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Sitting out Monday's game

    Perez (groin/hip) is not in the lineup for Monday's contest versus the White Sox, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Perez departed Sunday's game against the Mets with left groin and hip injuries. Catcher Logan Porter has joined the Royals in Chicago as part of the taxi squad, per Rogers, in case Perez's injury winds up being more of a day-to-day situation. The Royals are expected to provide more clarity on Perez later Monday. Freddy Fermin is getting the start at catcher against the White Sox.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Managing groin, hip issues

    Perez was removed from Sunday's game against the Mets with left groin and hip injuries, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Perez started at catcher Sunday and went 1-for-2 with a double before being lifted from the contest after a collision at home plate. The specifics of the injury are unclear, so the 33-year-old should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener versus the White Sox.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Pops 250th career homer

    Perez went 2-for-5 with a home run and four total RBI in Saturday's win over the Mets.

    Perez's hit in the fourth inning was initially ruled a double, but it was overturned to a home run upon review, as the tape showed that the ball was deflected by Brandon Nimmo over the left-field wall at Citi Field. It was the fourth homer of the season for Perez and the 250th of his illustrious career. Perez is still the leader in the Kansas City clubhouse and continues to play nearly every day between catcher and first base.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Provides lone run in loss

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Mets.

    Perez was responsible for the Royals' only run and one of their three hits when he took Luis Severino deep in the second inning. Perez continues to hit well in the cleanup spot, batting .327 with an .871 OPS, three homers, 11 RBI, seven runs scored and a double over 14 contests. With the Royals playing well early on, Perez's success should lead to an increase in counting stats after he had 80 RBI and 59 runs scored over 140 games last year.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Perfect at plate Friday

    Perez went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk in Friday's 2-1 win over the White Sox.

    Perez turned in his third three-hit game of the season, but it was his walk that set up the go-ahead run -- he was replaced by pinch runner Dairon Blanco, who stole second and scored on an MJ Melendez single in the eighth inning. Perez is batting .387 with two home runs, nine RBI, one double and four runs scored over 33 plate appearances for a strong start to 2024.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Three hits, two RBI in win

    Perez went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Orioles.

    Perez had RBI singles in his first two at-bats of the game. The catcher has racked up nine hits over the last four contests, and he's added eight RBI in that span. He was a little quiet to start the season, but it's taken little time for him to get into form. Perez looks set to see a near everyday role between catcher, designated hitter and first base, and he's batted cleanup in every game so far.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Homers again Monday

    Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Perez went 0-for-7 over the first two games of the season, but he's now homered twice and driven in six runs over the last two contests. The catcher is dialed in and has little risk of losing playing time -- he's started behind the dish three times and played at first base in his other game. Perez could also be the designated hitter on occasion, but manager Matt Quatraro looks committed to getting his bat in the lineup a vast majority of the time.

  • Royals' Salvador Perez: Three hits, including homer in win

    Perez went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer, four RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-0 win over the Twins.

    Perez started off the game with a splash, launching a three-run home run off Minnesota starter Bailey Ober in the first inning, driving in teammates Bobby Witt and Vinnie Pasquantino in the process. He later added an RBI single in the second inning and another base knock in the third frame. Perez came into Sunday hitless through the first two games of the season, so he'll look to build off his impressive performance moving forward.
