by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Royals catcher Salvador Perez didn't get the day off Thursday against the Twins, but may receive one over the weekend, manager Ned Yost told reporters, per the Kansas City Star.

Perez is off to a fast start, hitting .364/.382/.667 with a double, three homers, nine RBI, a stolen base and a walk over his first 33 at-bats. When Perez does receive a day of rest, Yost will likely give Erik Kratz a start. Kratz has yet to receive an at-bat this season.

Royals' Yost going away from built-in days off for Salvador Perez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Royals manager Ned Yost was considering having Erik Kratz as a personal catcher for one of the pitchers in the team's rotation as a way of having built-in days off for starting catcher Salvador Perez. However, Yost is no longer going to use that plan.

"Just not going to happen," Yost said Wednesday, per MLB.com."I talked to my staff and decided that's not what we want to do. We'll pick spots and give Sal a day off. We'll look for days -- a Saturday off or a Sunday. We just decided to go that way."

Yost added it will be up to the coaching staff to make sure Perez, who appeared in a career-high 150 games in 2014, gets time off in 2015.

"You got so many off-days early in the season," Yost said. "[The rest] comes into play about June, July and August. But then in September, that's it [for days off] unless we have a big lead."

Report: Royals catcher Salvador Perez might get more starts at DH


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2014) After appearing in 146 games behind the plate in 2014, the Royals might be inclined to give catcher Salvador Perez more starts at DH in 2015 in an attempt to preserve his knees, a source told the Philadelphia Daily News.

Perez made four appearances at DH in 2014, but the team is considering their DH options for 2015 since Billy Butler is a free agent. There is a report the Royals might consider trading for Ryan Howard to be the primary DH. Although, it doesn't seem Howard is high on the Royals' priority list, per the Daily News.
