Royals | Ned Yost praises Salvador Perez

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost thinks he has a rare find in his new catcher in C Salvador Perez. "The first time I laid eyes on Sal, it took me about two days to realize he was special. I've been in this game a long time. I've seen hundreds of catchers come through and I've never seen one like him. He's a very, very rare find." Perez has shown to be a free swinger, swinging at 40 percent of pitches thrown to him outside the strike zone in 148 at-bats last year, but he managed to hit .331 with 13 extra-base hits. He had 18 hits on pitches that were outside the zone.
