Salvador Perez to have an MRI on his knee

6 Comments

Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Monday’s game with some soreness in the knee. It was downplayed by the Royals and he started on Tuesday. But then he missed last night’s game. Now it’s MRI time:

I guess what I’m curious about is whether Perez was being unnecessarily tough on Tuesday and whether he should’ve rested then. But I suppose if the MRI is clear it doesn’t matter.

If it isn’t. Welp, that’s a problem, as he has been one of the more productive hitters on a team that is hungry for offense.
