Everyone saw Salvador Perez's regression coming following his career year in 2021. The question was only how far the fall would be. In 2022, he appeared in only 114 games, a far cry from the 161 the year before. Injuries plagued him and led to UCL surgery in his left thumb in the first half of the season. Even with that, the 33-year-old hit 23 home runs with 76 RBI and 48 runs scored. The catcher position is notoriously shallow so drafting a guy capable of hitting 30+ homers still ranks as a solid move. He will also presumably get more time at DH with M.J. Melendez on the roster.

Salvador Perez (thumb) out again Monday

Salvador Perez will sit out for the second straight game Monday with a sore left thumb.

Fantasy Impact

This is the same thumb that Perez had surgery on this season, but the soreness is said to be expected. It's unclear if Perez will be able to get back into the lineup before the end of the season or if the Royals will shut him down. He has 23 HRs and a .465 SLG in 114 games in 2022.
