News: Perez was 3 for 4 with his 12th home run of the season in Friday's 6-4 victory over the Indians. Impact: Perez remains one of the best assets at his position in fantasy baseball with a .283 batting average. However, owners would likely prefer a higher batting average with runners in scoring position than his current mark of .221, as he'd likely produce more RBIs than the 38 he has.(STATS, 5:51pm)

News: Perez (groin) is in the lineup Monday at the White Sox. Impact: Held out Sunday due to a strained right groin, Perez will man his typical spot at catcher and bat cleanup. Prior to the absence, he had played in every game in July, batting .259/.286/.315 with one homer, eight RBI, and six runs in 54 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Perez (groin) says he expects to return to the lineup Monday, when the Royals will begin their three-game series with the White Sox, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: As the Royals noted when Perez was missing from Sunday's lineup, the right groin strain that is keeping Perez out of the series finale with the Red Sox is not expected to result in a DL stint, and the catcher's own optimism would seem to support that. The Royals could still choose to rest him Monday to play it safe, but for now, plan on Perez resuming duties behind the plate at some point during the series with Chicago.(RotoWire, )
