The Royals placed Salvador Perez on the COVID-19 injured list.

 Willson Contreras heard his name mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason but nothing materialized so he is back as the starting catcher for the Cubs. He is a weapon against the running game with his strong, accurate arm along with his ability to catch runners who are not paying attention by snapping a throw off behind them.

  Royals manager Mike Matheny says Salvador Perez (elbow) is in better shape compared to Spring Training 1.0.

Notes 
 Contreras had a nice bounce back season last year after a disappointing 2018. He, too, could catch 95 percent of the Cubs games this year, which would make him a lock for a top three catcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
PĂ©rez is a great value on draft day for a catcher who plays nearly every day. Expect Mike Matheny to curb his playing time a tad since he missed all of last year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Contreras is no doubt one of the best hitting catchers in baseball, with a .270+ average in three of four seasons, but his upside is capped by the fact that Chicago also has Caratini and is certain to get him 200+ PAs. Even so, Contreras should have no trouble reaching 20 HRs, 50 R and 60 RBIs once again.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Perez missed the entire season but is still just 30 years old and let's not forget that he was an all-star for six consecutive seasons. There is no more consistent source of power at the position but his BA has dipped into danger territory two times in three seasons. Perez ends the top teir of reliable catchers.
