Salvador Perez Injury: Royals Catcher Helped Off Field With Hurt Leg After Collision

When the injury bug bites, it bites hard.

Kansas City Royals All-Star catcher Salvador Perez was helped off the field Saturday against the Chicago White Sox following a collision with third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert on a routine foul pop up.

The Royals defeated the Chicago White Sox 8-7 after a wild seven-run ninth inning.

They received a bit of relative good news regarding Perez, too.

Kansas City also lost starting third baseman Mike Moustakas to a torn ACL and starting left fielder Alex Gordon to a broken wrist on the same play earlier this week.
