Royals’ Salvador Perez to Undergo Surgery
Kansas City Royals catcher Savaldor Perez is slated to undergo surgery to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb and has been placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to Tuesday, according to ESPN.
Perez is currently batting a career-low .211 with a Royals team-high 11 home runs, and has missed nine games earlier this season with a left thumb sprain, but was able to return to the field in late May.
Perez is coming off a red-hot 2021 campaign in which he tied for the major league lead with 48 homers and drove in 121 runs.
