Royals Activate Salvador Perez From Injured List


The Royals announced Friday that catcher Salvador Perez has been reinstated from the injured list. Infielder Emmanuel Rivera was optioned to Triple-A Omaha to open a spot on the roster.

It’s a remarkably swift turnaround for the veteran Perez, who underwent surgery on June 24 to repair a torn ligament in his thumb. At the time of the surgery, manager Mike Matheny told reporters that doctors expected Perez to require about eight weeks to mend from the surgery. Instead, he’s back on the big league roster after exactly five weeks and having appeared in just three minor league rehab games (during which he went 4-for-8 with a double).

More to come.
