10/22/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez hit a home run in Game 1 of the World Series.
Insight: It was the only offense Kansas City was able to muster all night, as the team only accumulated four hits. They will look to get back on track Wednesday for Game 2.
 
10/15/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: In the Royals lineup, catcher Salvador Perez has had the most success against Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez.
Insight: No one on the Royals has more than 10 at-bats against Gonzalez in their career, but in a small sample size, Perez is 4-for-9 with a home run. Outfielder Norichika Aoki is 1-for-3 versus Gonzalez, however, everyone else that has faced him is hitting below .200.
 
10/1/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez hit a walk off single in the bottom of the 12th to finish off the Athletics and cap off a dramatic Kansas City comeback to defeat Oakland, 9-8, in the American League Wild Card game on Tuesday.
Insight: Perez was 0-for-5 before the single down the third baseline that scored Christian Colon with two outs. Perez had a chance to drive in the tying run from third base in the eighth with one out and failed to deliever but came through in the 12th. Kansas City advances to face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the ALDS.
 
9/19/2014 12:32:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is a career 14-for-33 (.424) with 10 RBI against Detroit right-hander Justin Verlander.
Insight: Perez has a career-high 16 home runs, however, he's batting just .260 which is 26 points below his lifetime batting average.
 
9/1/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI Monday against Texas.
Insight: Perez batted just .229 in August and is hitting .269 on the season after batting .292 or better in his first three seasons. He does have a career-high 16 home runs, however.
 
8/27/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is a career .143 hitter (2-for-14) with one RBI against Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes.
Insight: Perez underwent a MRI on his knee last week and even though manager Ned Yost downplayed the injury, the all-star catcher is just 2-for-16 since the MRI. Wednesday is a tough matchup for Perez, so his struggles may continue.
 
8/21/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (knee) was to have an MRI Thursday.
Insight: He left Monday's game with knee soreness and is dealing with the issue again after catching a full game Tuesday. The Royals have Thursday off so Perez should be back in the lineup Friday at Texas unless tests reveal something.
 
8/20/2014 9:03:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (knee) was scratched from Wednesday's lineup.
Insight: He left Monday's game with knee soreness and is dealing with the issue again after catching a full game Tuesday. The Royals have Thursday off so Perez should be back in the lineup Friday at Texas.
 
8/19/2014 6:37:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (knee) is in the lineup Tuesday.
Insight: He left Monday's game with minor knee soreness but won't even need a full game off. He's behind the plate at Colorado.
 
8/18/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Monday's game with right knee discomfort, according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: The Royals called it a "precautionary measure." We imagine all everyday catchers are dealing with knee soreness to a certain degree at this point in the season. A day or two off should do the trick.
 
8/15/2014 1:44:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez sat out Thursday afternoon's game against Oakland, but should be back behind the plate Friday versus Minnesota.
Insight: However, Perez is not a great play Friday as he's just 1-for-9 against Ricky Nolasco for his career. Perez has already set a career high for home runs (14), but his batting average is currently 24 points below his .291 career average.
 
8/14/2014 1:04:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez will sit out Thursday afternoon's game against Oakland.
Insight: Just a routine day off after a night game for the All-Star catcher. Perez has already set a career high for home runs although his batting average is currently 24 points below his .291 career average.
 
8/10/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez hit his 14th homer of the year Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: With that, Perez set a new career high, though he's sacrificed average for a slight power boost this season. After hitting .301 his first three seasons, Perez has batted .271 in 2014.
 
8/6/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI Tuesday against Arizona.
Insight: Perez hit just .240 with just three extra-base hits in 96 at-bats last month, which sliced his OPS from .789 to .734. He's hitting .276 with 13 homers, 44 RBI, 45 runs and a .736 OPS after Tuesday's game.
 
7/25/2014 11:29:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Friday against Cleveland.
Insight: Perez hasn't done much in July, but he's still batting .285 on the year and is one homer away from tying his career high of 13.
 
7/21/2014 7:35:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (groin) is back in the lineup Monday.
Insight: Perez missed Sunday's game with minor groin soreness. He'll DH Monday and Billy Butler will start at first in place of Eric Hosmer (hand contusion).
 
7/21/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (groin) was not in the lineup Sunday, but is probable for Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox.
Insight: Perez is dealing with minor groin soreness. He boasted a career .301 batting average heading into the season, but is batting just .282 even after a big month of June.
 
7/20/2014 12:11:00 PM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez (groin) is not in the lineup Sunday, but he expects to be back Monday, according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: Perez is dealing with minor groin soreness. He had a terrific June (.347, 4 2B, 5 HR, 16 RBI) but has been subpar in the other three months. In July, Perez has batted .259 with one extra-base hit.
 
7/13/2014 12:51:00 PM
Description: UPDATE: Perez is not in the lineup Sunday. Royals catcher Salvador Perez has batted .467 with seven doubles and a homer against Detroit starter Justin Verlander.
Insight: Perez already has 11 homers this season after hitting just 13 last year and although he has just 36 RBI and 38 runs on the year, he's driven in 24 and scored 24 in his last 40 games.
 
Cold7/11/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is hitless in 12 at-bats against Detroit hurler Anibal Sanchez.
Insight: Perez (.282, 11 HR, 35 RBI) is having a bad week going 5-for-26 so combined with a poor matchup should be avoided for Friday.
