After taking a foul ball of his left palm, Royals catcher Salvador Perez left Monday’s game against the Mariners.
The initial X-rays were encouraging, a team spokesman said. But Perez was scheduled to get more tests. The initial diagnosis is a contusion.
Perez exited the game in the middle of the third inning. He had been pinch-hit for during the frame by backup Adam Moore. After the Royals finished batting, Perez ran out of the stadium, with trainer Nick Kenney in tow.
