Found June 22, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Kansas City activated catcher Salvador Perez the 60-day disabled list, the club announced Friday. The Royals also announced that right-handed pitcher Felipe Paulino has been diagnosed by team doctors with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Paulino will receive a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum. Paulino pitched three innings in a rehab start with Class AA Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday. The right-hander is 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA in seven starts with Kansas City. The club still needs to make a corresponding move on its 25- or 40-man roster before officially adding Perez. Perez has not played for the big league club this season after undergoing surgery on a torn meniscus in his left knee in March. He batted .340 with two doubles, seven RBI and 11 runs scored in 12 games on his rehab assignment with Class AAA Omaha.

Choosing the Kansas City Royals’ backup catcher

Kansas City Royals fans are excited that the return of stud catcher Salvy Perez to the Royals lineup is imminent.  This creates a potential problem on the roster because they traded for Humberto Quintero when Perez got hurt in Spring Training, giving up a legitimate pitching prospect to do so.  No good MLB roster is constructed with 3 players who can only catch or DH, so the...

The Royals announced in a statement Friday that team doctors diagnosed Paulino with a torn ulnar collateral ligament, which usually requires season-ending reconstructive surgery.

This marks the fourth pitcher expected to be on the opening day roster to undergo this surgery (Soria, Duffy and Blake Wood the others). Combined with  John Lamb about this time last year...

Royals' Paulino has torn ligament in right elbow

If Paulino has the season-ending surgery, he would be the fourth Royal to require...

Felipe Paulino Needs Tommy John Surgery

The Kansas City Royals have been dealt another injury blow as Felipe Paulino has been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Paulino will likely require season ending Tommy John surgery, joining fellow Royals pitchers Danny Duffy, Joakim Soria and Blake Woods to undergo the surgery in 2012. The news comes at a terrible time for Paulino, as the five year veteran is in the midst...

Royals continue to struggle at bat vs. Cardinals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Here's a thought: Maybe we've got this narrative all screwed up. Maybe it's not all about the Tommy John surgeries (which, admittedly, don't help), or the yo-yo pitching lines of Luke Hochevar (although those don't help either), or the fact the bullpen keeps getting worked over like a rented mule. Maybe it's this: After Saturday's 8...

Royals put three in Futures Game

The future continues to look bright with no clouds for the Royals.

The Royals are the only organization in baseball to place three players in the Futures Game. This will be the second straight year for...

New formula: Score less, win more

Go figure. After scoring seven runs in the series opener Monday at Houston and losing 9-7, the Royals scored four runs in the final two games at Minute Maid Park and won both. Bruce Chen and four relievers combined for a 2-1 victory Wednesday over the Astros. While the Royals' offense managed only four hits, they scored just enough runs for the pitching. Chen, working on three...

Developing: Blue Rocks Player Development Contract With the Royals at the End of the Season

While this probably isn't big news yet, The Wilmington Blue Rocks Player Development Contract with the Kansas City Royals ends after this season. The reason I don't think this will amount to anything is that the Royals and the Rocks have an outstanding relationship and from a geographical point of view, their are no Advanced A teams with contracts ending this year to move...

Myers remains patient in Omaha

PAPILLION, Neb. Wil Myers shrugs. The conversation turns to the idea of him spending the rest of 2012 in Omaha, and maybe the year after that, even though he's crushing the Pacific Coast League the way Godzilla crushes trailer parks. To this, Myers smiles. He'll turn 22 in December; there are worse fates. "Yeah, it's fine," the Kansas City Royals' slugging...

Cardinals-Royals Preview

Carlos Beltran admits it was an emotional time when the Kansas City Royals traded him eight years ago this weekend. However, it may be the Kauffman Stadium crowd that is feeling blue after he leaves town.
