Salvador Perez could see 'considerable' time at 1B

The Royals mentioned that Salvador Perez could see "considerable" playing time at first base in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

This would be a boon to Perez's fantasy value, as it would add flexibility to allow him to likely play more during the season while maintaining his catcher eligibility. If this comes to fruition, Perez could push into the top-5 at the position. Currently, he seems like a lock to go as a top-10 catcher in 2020 fantasy drafts even coming off his injury.

Salvador Perez undergoes Tommy John surgery

Salvador Perez underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Perez will miss all of 2019 but figures to be ready for the start of 2020. His injury is a huge blow to an already weak position for fantasy. Cam Gallagher figures to get the first crack at replacing him this year.

Salvador Perez (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

He will miss all of 2019 but should be good to go for the start of 2020. Perez's injury weakens an already thin catcher position in fantasy.

Salvador Perez (elbow) set to miss all of 2019

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports Salvador Perez is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery next week.

Fantasy Impact

The surgery would wipe him out for the entire season. Perez suffered the elbow injury during Wednesday’s workout. It’s a brutal blow to an already weak catcher position in fantasy. There is now one less option for fantasy players who want to snag a backstop reasonably early in drafts.

Salvador Perez suffers severe elbow injury during Wednesday workout

Salvador Perez suffered a severe elbow injury during a workout in Royals camp on Wednesday. He had an MRI on Thursday which showed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). He will get a second opinion next week from Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Fantasy Impact

This is horrible news for a position that is already hard to fill on fantasy rosters. Depending upon the severity of the damage, Perez could require Tommy John Surgery which would eliminate him from playing at all this season. It's a huge blow to the Royals and fantasy rosters everywhere.
