Salvador Perez out 4-6 weeks after tearing MCL while carrying luggage

Salvador Perez

The Kansas City Royals season is not off to a good start.

On the eve of Opening Day, Royals catcher Salvador Perez tore his MCL while carrying luggage, and is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks of action.

Perez isn’t the first ballplayer to suffer a strange off-field fall, and he surely won’t be the last. Still, it’s a strange one, and not particularly well-timed.

Perez played in 129 games last season, hitting .268 with 27 home runs. During their most successful years, he had been the team’s iron man, missing a total of just 55 games over the three-year period from 2014 through 2016. It seems he won’t be quite as durable this year.
