Salvador Perez remained a staple of the Kansas City Royals lineup in 2023, playing in 140 games and racking up 580 plate appearances. He hit .254 with a miserable .292 OBP and .422 SLG. He hit 23 home runs for the second year in a row and drove in 80. His projections for 2024 suggest more of the same for the 33-year-old. Perez is a catcher who isn't going to drag down your batting average and give you 20+ homers. That is a rare bird; at his ADP of 133, he isn't a bad value in 2024.

Salvador Perez placed on concussion IL

Salvador Perez has been placed on the 7-day concussion IL.

Fantasy Impact

Perez sat out Sunday's game after taking a foul ball off the face on Saturday, and will now need at least a week to recover from a concussion. The Royals also transferred Freddy Fermin to the 60-day IL, so newly called-up Tyler Cropley should get plenty of opportunities behind the plate alongside Logan Porter.
