  • Royals activated C Salvador Perez from the 10-day disabled list.<p><b>Advice</b>: Perez started the year on the disabled list after tearing the MCL in his left knee just before Opening Day, but he went 9-for-24 (.375) with two homers and two doubles during his minor league rehab stint.

  • Royals manager Ned Yost said Friday that the hope is Salvador Perez (knee) will be activated sometime during next week's April 24-29 homestand.<p><b>Advice</b>: Perez has already played four rehab games and Yost said the catcher feels "great." He's slated to serve as the designated hitter for Triple-A Omaha on Friday before catching back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday. That could be the last hurdle he needs to clear before being activated as soon as Tuesday. If he does return Tuesday, Perez will have made it back in four weeks after being given a 4-6 week timetable to recover from a torn MCL.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/goldbergkc/status/987352319116435456">Joel Goldberg on Twitter</a></p>

  • Salvador Perez (knee) has moved his minor league rehab assignment to Triple-A Omaha.<p><b>Advice</b>: Salvy went 3-for-9 with a home run and three RBI in three rehab games with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. It sounds like he might be ready to join the Royals' active roster by early next week, which would be well ahead of his original timetable. The All-Star catcher suffered a MCL tear in his left knee when he tripped while carrying his luggage a few days before Opening Day.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/rustindodd/status/986677485294108672">Rustin Dodd on Twitter</a></p>

  • Salvador Perez (knee) went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Sunday in his first minor league rehab game with Double-A Northwest Arkansas.<p><b>Advice</b>: Perez also caught four innings in his first game action since tearing the MCL in his left knee in a freak off-field injury just prior to Opening Day. The plan calls for him to serve as the designated hitter Monday before catching again on Tuesday. He'll be reevaluated from there, but the Royals will likely want him to catch on back-to-back days before bringing him back. Either way, he's on track to return much faster than originally expected. The initial timetable was 4-6 weeks.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/for-petes-sake/article208988884.html">Kansas City Star</a></p>
