Royals | Salvador Perez out 7-10 days

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:24:09 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez (quadriceps) will miss seven to 10 days because of a quadriceps injury, according to manager Ned Yost. C Drew Butera will start at catcher against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Sunday, May 29, and is batting ninth in the lineup. Perez underwent an MRI which did not show any ligament damage to his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Butera likely will receive most of the starts while Perez is sidelined. Butera is hitting .250 in limited playing time this season, but owners should be able to find better options in most fantasy leagues.

Royals | Salvador Perez diagnosed with quad bruise

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:19:38 -0700

Updating a previous story, Kansas City C Salvador Perez (quadriceps) was diagnosed with a left quadriceps contusion following a collision with teammate 3B Cheslor Cuthbert late in a win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, May 28. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday, May 29, but initial reports suggest he did not suffer structural damage to his knee.

Fantasy Tip: A stint on the disabled list can't be ruled out yet, but it sure sounds like Perez escaped serious harm and might only miss a few days, if that. Drew Butera is the overwhelming favorite to draw a start on Sunday and is the only other Royal on the current roster that has caught a pitch this season.

Royals | Salvador Perez helped off field Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 14:15:59 -0700

Kansas City C Salvador Perez (knee) needed assistance to leave the field on Saturday, May 28, against the Chicago White Sox after injuring his left knee in a collision with 3B Cheslor Cuthbert while pursuing a foul popup. C Drew Butera replaced Perez following the ninth-inning mishap.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Moustakas was lost for the season and Alex Gordon for about approximately a month following their own collision last weekend against the White Sox. Given the aforementioned losses to the key bats in their lineup already, the Royals simply cannot afford another hitter in the middle of their order to miss significant time. Kansas City should have an update shortly on one of the top backstops in fantasy. Assuming Perez is out for any length of time, Butera is not a worthwhile alternative in any format.

Royals | Two Royals sitting Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:34:16 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and OF Jarrod Dyson are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25. C Salvador Perez is in at designated hitter and hitting fifth, and OF Whit Merrifield is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Salvy has had a good month of May with a .309-3-10 line. He's a daily consideration at catcher. Merrifield is 6-for-18 (.333) with three doubles to begin his career. He's a basement option against Tyler Duffey.

Royals | Salvador Perez has five hits

Tue, 24 May 2016 00:49:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez had five hits Monday, May 23, including a double, triple and a run batted in, as the Royals scored a 10-4 win over the Minnesota Twins. Perez has now hit safely in nine straight games, and his average went from .245 to .270 in this game alone.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has been one of the stronger hitting catchers in American League and mixed fantasy leagues, and as such he should be in your lineup. Perez is solid in all formats and should be activated as quick as possible.

Royals | Kendrys Morales, Jarrod Dyson out

Sun, 22 May 2016 10:14:49 -0700

Kansas City Royals 1B Kendrys Morales and OF Jarrod Dyson are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Sunday, May 22. C Salvador Perez will serve as the designated hitter, while C Drew Butera will start at catcher and is batting ninth. OF Paulo Orlando will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Butera has a decent batting average but has only has 12 at-bats on the season, so owners should be able to find better players for their lineups. Orlando should be a solid starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues because he is hitting .533 with one home runs and six RBI over the last seven days.

Royals | Three Royals may have success Friday

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:32:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Lorenzo Cain, 1B Kendrys Morales and C Salvador Perez have all had some success in the last five years against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana, who they face Friday, May 20. Cain is hitting .319 with three RBI in 47 at-bats, Morales is hitting .308 with a home run and five RBI in 26 at-bats and Perez is hitting .378 with two long balls and eight RBI in 45 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Cain and Perez are must-start guys in all traditional formats and are likely popular plug-ins in daily lineups, too. However, Morales has been one of the bigger disappointments with just five home runs and a .195/.252/.336 line in 40 games. Keep in mind Quintana is not the same pitcher he's been in recent seasons, so all three hitters tonight could struggle. Morales is certainly one to avoid.

Royals | Three Royals out for Game 1

Wed, 18 May 2016 08:29:08 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez, 2B Omar Infante and OF Paulo Orlando are out for the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 18. 2B Christian Colon, C Drew Butera and OF Jarrod Dyson are hitting in the final three spots in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Butera is 4-for-10 (.400) with three doubles on the season. He's a shot in the dark against knuckle-baller Steven Wright. Dyson has wheels, but he's hitting just .217. He and Colon aren't ripe DFS flyers today.

Royals | Salvador Perez drives in three runs

Wed, 11 May 2016 19:27:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer against the New York Yankees Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: Perez currently has a four-game hitting streak on the heels of a 1-for-16 stretch and is now batting .234 with five home runs and 18 RBI. Despite the low average, he still deserves to be viewed as a solid catching option in all fantasy formats.

Royals | Salvador Perez has a day off

Wed, 04 May 2016 09:30:53 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with C Drew Butera hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Butera is 3-for-7 (.429) on the season, but he's not a good flyer against Stephen Strasburg.
