Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is hitless in 12 at-bats against Detroit hurler Anibal Sanchez.
Insight: Perez (.282, 11 HR, 35 RBI) is having a bad week going 5-for-26 so combined with a poor matchup should be avoided for Friday.

Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is a carweer .381 (8-for-21) with two homers and a 1.143 OPS against Tigers ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Perez (.281, 7 HR, 23 RBI) left in the seventh inning with leg cramps but not before extending his hitting streak to ten games. He should be okay for Tuesday's game and in all starting lineups as he's raised his average 21 points during his hot streak.

Description: Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez is not in Monday's starting lineup, according to Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.
Insight: Just a routine day off. Perez (.271, 6 HR, 20 RBI) has batted .325 over the past two weeks to raise his average 12 points. He's still 25 points below his career average. Brett Hayes will make the start, but with an .086 batting average holds no fantasy value.

Insight: The 24-year-old has been a relative disappointment this season, hitting 37 points below his career average (.296) and hasn't had a multi-hit game in a week. He has been dealing with a thumb injury which could be the reason. Brett Hayes (.067) gets the start but has no fantasy value.

Description: Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez is not in the Royals starting lineup for Saturday.
Insight: Perez has batted .364 over the past two week to raise his average to .269. He's never finished below .292 in any season, so we expect his batting average to continue to rise.
 
Hot5/13/2014 11:07:00 PM
Description: Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez has gone 20-for-56 (.357) with three homers since his massive April slump.

Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez launched his second homer of the season Tuesday against Toronto.
Insight: Perez (.250, 2 HR, 10 RBI) added a two-run double an inning later to finish the night with four RBI. He's had a mediocre first month but fantasy owners shouldn't give up on him.

Insight: Perez is 1-for29 over his last seven games. He's a .292 career hitter, but has started off slowly, batting just .203 through the first 21 games. This matchup won't help.
