For Pete's Sake

Royals catcher Salvador Perez is already in Arizona (and misses Lorenzo Cain)

Itching for baseball to return?

The Royals don’t require pitchers and catchers to report to Surprise, Ariz., until Feb. 19, and the full squad is not expected until Feb. 24.

However, catcher Salvador Perez has already made it to Surprise, and he’s already posting videos to his Instagram account that include Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain (you may recall the fun he had last year), even if Cain’s not there to harass.
