Royals: Salvador Perez and the offense of 4 catchers

It was a strange year for Kansas City Royals fans with the Gold Glove backstop out for the season. Salvador Perez is highly regarded amongst most Royals fans and he is the heart and soul of the team throughout these seasons where there isn’t a lot to be excited about.

Perez brings a high level of defense and consistent batting to the team whenever he is healthy, and the Royals knew that having to play a year without him could be bad. They quickly went on the search for a free agent catcher, understanding the options they currently had were still young and needed some time.
