Royals | Salvador Perez out against Rays

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:55:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Perez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The backstop is having a nice month with three home runs, 13 RBI and a .274 batting average, and seasonal owners should be rewarded with a strong finish to the season. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a .537 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players shouldn't count on him Sunday.

Royals | Salvador Perez catching Saturday

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 12:26:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (wrist) is back in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Saturday, Aug. 15, batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is making his first start behind the plate since Tuesday, Aug. 11. He is 5-for-14 with a double and two RBIs over the past week and is 4-for-6 versus Shoemaker in his career, making him worth the gamble tonight in FantasyScore.

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 16:05:11 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will be examined by doctors Friday to determine when he can return, so stay tuned for an update on his status. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Friday, and you should aim higher.

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 13:47:53 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was expected to miss only a few games to rest the wrist injury, so it isn't out of the question for him to return Friday, Aug. 14. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players.

Royals | Salvador Perez will rest a few days

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:03:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez's (wrist) results for his MRI exam on his wrist came back clean, and he will receive a few days off, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Perez's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) injury, and don't be surprised if he jumps back into the lineup sooner than later. Drew Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start in place of Perez, but Butera offers no fantasy value. After all, he owns a career .183/.236/.266 slash line.

Royals | Salvador Perez sitting vs. Tigers

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 13:54:19 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday, but take note of his recent 9-for-25 run with a round tripper and five RBI. Perez is worth targeting at FantasyScore in favorable matchups. Check back for updates on his wrist injury. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a career .183/.236/.266 slash line and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Royals | Salvador Perez has a large night

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 19:28:50 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI during the Royals' 5-1 win over the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) entered the game riding a 2-for-27 funk with a .171 OPS, so his outburst Tuesday was a nice bounce back for his seasonal owners. At his cap hit, FantasyScore players will want to view him as a risky start until he shows more consistency at the plate.
