Looks like Brayan Pena will be getting more work than at first though. After innitial reports had Salvador Perez out only a few weeks, the Royals announce today that the star catcher will be missing 3-4 months instead. This means the Royals won’t have the services of Perez until mid-June at the earliest.
This means the catcher will be missing the first half of the season. Bad news for the Royals who just signed Salvy to a long-term contract extension that could keep him in a Royals uniform up to 2019.
The Kansas City Star reported the Royals may be interested in 40 year old vet, Ivan Rodriguez as a possible replacement. This news came before the announcement of how long Salvador was really going to be out.
