C Salvador Perez hoping Royals renegotiate contract


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Royals premier catcher Salvador Perez is hoping his team will see fit to renegotiate a contract that he has clearly outplayed.

The Royals could play hardball and maintain his five-year, $7 million deal with three club options extending to 2019. But he hopes not.

"I want to stay here," Perez told Yahoo Sports. "I want to spend my career here. That's the team that gave me an opportunity when I was 16 years old. ... I don't like to think about that [contract]. But in the back of my mind, I start to think about it. Hopefully, they can do something different to me."

That distraction could be affecting him at the plate. Perez is 2-for-23 over his last seven games as his average has dropped to a season-low .277.

Royals' Yost wants Salvador Perez to be more patient at the plate


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Royals manager Ned Yost told reporters he believes that catcher Salvador Perez will work through his issues and learn how to be a patient hitter at the plate. According to BrooksBaseball.com, Perez is swinging at 58 percent of the pitches outside the zone.

"It's all part of developing as a hitter," manager Ned Yost said. "You can try and tell guys to stop swinging at balls in the dirt. But that's foolish. They've got to get to the point where they trust themselves, they trust their teammates, and they control their emotions in those situations so you don't try to do too much.

"When will that time come? I don't know. But it will come."

Perez is hitting .281/.291/.439 with nine doubles, six homers and 25 RBI in 46 games.
