KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Royals today announced that the club has returned catcher Salvador Perez from his minor league rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 60-day Disabled List. Perez will be in Kansas City and available for tonights game vs. St. Louis. In order to officially add Perez to the active roster, the Royals will make a corresponding 25-man and 40-man roster move later today. In addition, the Royals announced that right-handed pitcher Felipe Paulino has been diagnosed by team doctors with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Perez, 22, has missed the entire 2012 season thus far after undergoing surgery on a torn meniscus in his left knee in March. While on his rehab assignment with Omaha (AAA), he batted .340 (17-for-50) in 12 games with 11 runs scored, two doubles and seven RBI. The 28-year-old Paulino will travel shortly to receive a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum. Paulino made a rehab start with Class AA Northwest Arkansas on Wednesday, pitching three innings. The right-hander was 3-1 with Kansas City this season in seven starts with a 1.67 ERA.
