5-Time All-Star Salvador Perez Out 4-6 Weeks After Freak Accident

Royals C Salvador Perez will be out 4-6 weeks after tearing his MCL in a fall while carrying his luggage.

"I feel said. I've put a lot of work into this year and to be behind home plate tomorrow and I'm not going to be there", he said. He appeared in 16 games and hit.350 with six homers and 40 RBIs in only 40 at-bats during the Cactus League schedule.

In 2012, Perez signed a five-year extension and just prior to the 2016 regular season, inked another five-year pact that would keep him in the fray through 2021. He said it is not expected that surgery will be necessary. In 2017, he slashed at.268/.297/.495 and set career highs with 27 home runs and 80 RBI.

He's also hit 20 or more home runs in the last three seasons. Then they go on the road for three games in Detroit and Cleveland before returning home for a seven-game homestand.
