Despite Scare, Avoided Major Injury vs. KC Royals C Salvador Perez Seattle Mariners

Hand injuries are some of the most troublesome for baseball players. They can singlehandedly derail a season, especially if involved with a hit-by-pitch scenario. For the Kansas City Royals and catcher Salvador Perez, that scenario came into play on Saturday night. Fortunately, it appears that Perez will be just fine.

In the seventh inning of the Royals’ eventual 13-7 loss to the Seattle Mariners, Perez was drilled by a 94.1 mph fastball from Yohan Ramirez. After hitting the deck and remaining on the ground momentarily, made his way to first base and remained in the game as a baserunner until Carlos Santana drove him in via a two-run home run during the next at-bat.
