RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Expectations were riding high for Perez heading into the 2012 season, but a torn meniscus suffered during spring training put him on the shelf for the entire first half of the season. Even in the wake of such a disastrous injury for a catcher, Perez came back and produced for fantasy owners in the exact fashion as they had hoped. Garnering 305 plate appearances, Perez hit .301 with 16 doubles and 11 home runs for a .170 ISO and, despite an abominable 3.9 percent walk rate, still managed a .328 OBP thanks to such strong contact rates and a very favorable 8.9 percent strikeout rate. He'll enter 2013 as the Royals' primary backstop and should be a hot commodity on draft day as few catchers are capable of hitting for average as he can along with his mid-level power.

2012

Perez made quite the leap in 2011 as he went from spending half the season at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, to spending less than two weeks at Triple-A Omaha, before he jumped up to the majors for the final two months of the season. At the Double-A level, he showed an ability to hit for average (.283 batting average) and a little bit of power (.429 slugging percentage with nine home runs in 286 at-bats). At the major league level, Perez continued to hit as he posted a .331 batting average and .473 slugging percentage. Those numbers need to be put in the proper context as he had a .362 BABIP helping him along in those 158 plate appearances. Still, the team is committed to Perez as their everyday catcher for the 2012 season. He'll be just 21 years old on Opening Day, so fantasy owners should expect a bit of a learning curve as Perez adjusts to life as a full-time catcher saddled with the responsibilities of handing a major league pitching staff.
