Player Notes
Salvador Perez hit a solo homer and drove in two runs in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Advice: Perez has been locked in at the dish in the first week of the season, launching three home runs and notching eight RBI through six games. Against the Angels on Sunday, he hit an RBI single in the second and a solo homer in the seventh, finishing the game 2-for-5. While his batting average dipped from .290 to .262 in 2014, the catcher also hit a career-high 17 home runs. 20-plus is definitely in reach for him in 2015. At just 25 years old, Perez still has room to improve.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Royals are "open" to a contract extension for Salvador Perez.

Advice: Perez is in the middle of an absurdly team-friendly five-year, $7 million contract that has team options which could keep him in Kansas City through 2019. However, Heyman says the Royals "seem to have sympathy" for Perez's low contract and "wouldn't mind making him a lifetime Royal." It's not clear what a new extension for Perez might look like.

Salvador Perez launched a two-run homer and drew a walk in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Advice: The home run was his first of the season. It was part of a three-run sixth inning against John Danks, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. The plan calls for the Royals to give Perez a bit more rest this season and that's not such a bad thing for fantasy owners given the way he wore down during the second half last year.
