Latest Update Salvador Perez wins the AL Gold Glove for catcher Tue Nov, 04, 07:04 PM
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 is on fire here in the World Series and is 5-for-14 (.357) with a home run and four RBI to bring his post-season average up to .188. The Royals are going to need him to keep this level of play up if they are going to make it past the Giants and win their first championship since 1985.Analyst: Howard Bender
Perez provided the Royals with their lone run during Game 1, but other than that, the Royals' offense was utterly stagnant. Even after Tuesday's performance, Perez has been down right brutal in the playoffs, batting just .135 with nine strikeouts over 37 at-bats. Hopefully the home run that he hit off of Madison Bumgarner is the spark he needs, but given his recent performance, I wouldn't count on it.Analyst: David Kerr
Perez, who has had concussion issue before shook it off and remained in the game after he took that shot in Game 2. He appears to be just fine and should be his regular ol' self when the Royals go for the sweep in the ALDS on Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
