Salvador Perez received a day off to rest his bruised left palm, but Royals manager Ned Yost expected Perez to return to the lineup on Wednesday afternoon.
Perez departed in the third inning of Monday’s victory over the Mariners. He absorbed a foul ball on his hand. An X-ray and a fluoroscope test each came back negative.
“It’s a bit of a bruise,” Yost said. “He’s playing tomorrow. He could play today. But when you swing [the bruise] is where the knob is. I want to give him one more day.”
