Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez is back from bereavement leave and the Royals have also recalled reliever Kelvin Herrera.

Perez has been away from the team since May 25, but will resume starting nearly every day behind the plate. Herrera was oddly demoted to Triple-A two weeks ago despite a 3.04 career ERA because of a brief rough patch and returns having thrown 4.2 scoreless innings in the minors.

To make room on the roster the Royals demoted catcher Adam Moore and reliever Louis Coleman to Triple-A.

    Tank God Salvy is back. The Royals are a totally different team without him.

    You don’t have to add the term odd or any of it’s Conjugations when discussing moves by Dayton Moore, they are all inherently odd.
