Latest Update Perez homers, scores twice in win Sat Jul, 26, 05:42 AM
Is huge for a catcher, with plenty of power and run-producing qualities. Also has good instincts behind the plate. Displays very good hitting ability.
Flaws: : Is still somewhat raw. Needs to improve his footwork. Injuries are a concern. Needs to walk more often so as to maximize his offensive output.
Perez stayed hot on Friday, now slashing .300/.300/.400 since returning from the All-Star break. After a miserable April (.211 BA), Perez was able to find his groove and is now sitting on a .285 average with 12 home runs and 38 RBI through 355 at-bats. Although his power production is going to remain limited in a sub-par Royals lineup, as long as he continues to hit for average he is a great option to deploy in all formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
This is a minor injury and got a regular day of on Sunday after playing in the two previous games. He is a top 10 catcher in fantasy and should be started in every league.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
No word yet as to how severe the strain is or how long it will sideline Perez, but truthfully speaking, the guys could really use a couple of days off. The Royals keep him in the lineup so often that the wear and tear is bound to catch up to him. Brett Hayes will be behind the plate for the Royals Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
After playing all 11 games in July, the Royals will give Perez a day off as he heads into the All Star break. He'll be available off the bench, if needed, but if not, he finishes the first half hitting .284 with 11 home runs and 36 RBI. Analyst: Howard Bender
