Salvador Perez went 3-for-6 with a walk, a double and a two-run homer during Monday's double-header sweep in Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

With his two-run homer in the first game Monday, Perez now sits atop the single-season home run list for those who have played at least 75% of their games at catcher. Johnny Bench held the previously record of 45, which has stood since 1970. Perez's previous career high for homers was 27 in addition to breaking many of his other career numbers. The All-Star backstop leads the league with 115 RBI and is tied for the top with 46 home runs.
