Royals' Salvador Perez: Out seven-to-10 days with quad contusion
Salvador Perez, C, KC
10:54 AM
News: Manager Ned Yost said Sunday that Perez would miss the next seven-to-10 days with a quad contusion, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

After suffering the injury during a collision with teammate Cheslor Cuthbert in Saturday's come-from-behind win over the White Sox, Perez underwent a precautionary MRI, which cleared the catcher of any structural damage to his knee. While Perez looks on track to miss at least a week's worth of games, the Royals don't believe that he'll need to miss a full 15 days, so a DL stint doesn't appear to be in the offing. The Royals did recall Tony Cruz from Triple-A Omaha to provide some catching depth behind Drew Butera, who will start behind the plate Sunday, while Perez is sidelined.

Teixeira was scheduled to take batting practice Sunday, but he'll still feeling the effects of neck spasms, which will force him out of the lineup for a fifth straight game. The Yankees are still waiting for Teixeira's cortisone shot to run its course, but the 36-year-old could be ready to play in Monday's series opener against the Blue Jays.

Brock Holt
Red Sox's Brock Holt: Limited to conditioning work
Brock Holt, LF, BOS
7:16 AM
News: Holt (concussion) has not yet started baseball activities as he returns from a concussion, the Boston Globe reports.

Holt has been limited to conditioning work as his progress has been described as "small." When Holt is ready to return, he may not return as Boston's primary left fielder. He was slumping badly at the time the concussion was diagnosed and his hitting has historically not held up in an everyday role. One thing going for him is that Blake Swihart, who is getting most of the starts in left field while Holt is on the disabled list, is just 3-for-19 since getting called up.

Brandon Workman
Red Sox's Brandon Workman: Throws in extended spring training

7:00 AM
News: Workman (elbow) has pitched three times in extended spring training, the Boston Globe reports.

Workman has been out-of-sight, out-of-mind while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He's pitching on a five-day schedule with the hope that his velocity and endurance will increase over time. "How he throws and how the arm strength returns will indicate how we factor him in and what he's going to be capable of," manager John Farrell said. The right-handerf, who has experience as both a starter and reliever, is expected to begin a rehab assignment for Short-Season Lowell when their season opens June 17.
