on

The Kansas City Royals placed all-star catcher Salvador Perez on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday due to a strained intercostal muscle on the right side of his chest, per reports.

Perez, 27, left Friday’s game against the Seattle Mariners after 6 innings of play and an MRI revealed his injury. The DL move was made retroactive to August 5th.

Perez has been durable and his last sting on the disabled list was back in 2012 when he landed on the 60-day DL with a knee injury.

Perez is batting .278 with 21 home runs and 65 RBIs this season for Kansas City who are battling the Cleveland Indians for the top spot in the AL Central and also fending off the Tampa Bay Rays for the second AL Wild Card Spot.

In a corresponding move, Cam Gallagher was recalled from Triple-A Omaha to fill the empty roster spot created by Perez’s injury.

This one, just doesn’t make much sense if the plan is to move Andujar to make room for the likes of Manny Machado.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray, the Yankees are “open to moving” Andjuar via trade, but there is no clear trade path to reference at this time.

This development clearly shows the Yankees desire to sign Machado to a free agent deal.

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
