Salvy Perez gets rare rest from Royals’ starting lineup

Royals manager Ned Yost did something rare Sunday. For the first time in 18 games, he held catcher Salvador Perez out of the starting lineup. “It’s a chance to, with the off day tomorrow, give him two (rest days) in a row,” said Yost, who started backup George Kottaras in Perez’s place.
