Latest Update Perez Homers in WS Loss Tue Oct, 21, 11:55 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 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
Perez and Eric Hosmer were the only Royals with multi-hit games Friday. Perez still does not have a walk in the postseason.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Perez had a brutal game at the plate. But all's well that ends well, no? He drove in the final run of the game on a Jason Hammel slider that was well off the plate (he had to make contract with one eventually!). Perez appeared in 150 games behind the plate this season which appears to have taken a toll on the young catcher at the plate. Analyst: Spencer Silva
