Exciting news here for the Royals, who are just 4.5 games out of an American League Wild Card spot.

Salvador Perez has been activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list and is back in the Royals’ starting lineup on Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, playing catcher and batting fifth. The talented 23-year-old was diagnosed with that concussion on August 4 after taking a foul tip hard off his catcher’s mask. Because he was only out for a week, a minor league rehab assignment wasn’t deemed necessary.

Perez is hitting .297/.326/.433 with 18 home runs and 103 RBI through his first 207 major league games. He has a very bright future.
