Kansas City Royals Activate Salvadore Perez from the IL

The Kansas City Royals have activated Salvadore Perez from the injured list, the Royals’ official website reports. Perez had been on the injured list since May 17 due to a thumb injury. He is in the starting lineup Saturday and batting fourth as the designated hitter. Perez had a career year in 2021 with 48 home runs, and 121 RBIs, while batting .273. That season though, has not transferred to this year, at least not in the first two months, as Perez only has six HRs and 16 RBIs and is batting .206 in 34 games.

Emmanuel Rivera has stolen the third base job. Can he keep it?

It's pretty standard for Royals fans to spend Spring Training looking for success stories among the young, up-and-comers. Guys who wouldn't draw any interest from other fanbases become hot topics of debate in Kansas City. I'm old enough to remember when the internet was awash with spilled ink and the blood of expectations because of one Johnny Giavotella. Johnny was never a top prospect*, even among the Royals. But fans demanded he be promoted with the zeal you might have more reasonably expected from Cubs fans when Kris Bryant was nearing his debut.

Game thread XLV: Royals at Twins

Brady Singer did not make the opening day starting rotation. This was not incredibly shocking, though it was disappointing. But he made the most of it, heading down to AAA and throwing his changeup with greater frequency. Because Kris Bubic and Carlos Hernández couldn’t hold down their rotation spots, he’s back, and the changeup has paid immediately dividends. In two starts he has yet to allow a run in 14 total innings. How long can he keep it up? Hopefully quite a bit longer, because I’d like to watch a good game, today.

Travis Kelce has great comment about his contract

For many, money is king. But apparently not for Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. A week after fellow tight end George Kittle ranted about Kelce being underpaid, saying it “boggles” his mind, Kelce responded. And although he was appreciative of Kittle’s support, he wasn’t on the same wavelength when it came to money.

Arabia Steamboat Museum may chart course to St. Charles, Missouri

One of Kansas City’s biggest tourist draws, the salvaged steamboat is poised to depart the City Market when its lease expires in 2026. The Arabia Steamboat Museum has been a staple in Kansas City’s River Market for more than 30 years but that could soon change. St. Charles, Missouri’s director of economic development, Mike Klinghammer, told KCUR that the city of St. Charles and the Arabia Steamboat’s owner, David Hawley, recently signed a letter of intent stating Hawley would work exclusively with the city over the next six months to develop a plan to move the museum to St. Charles.
