RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

After an incredibly strong finish to the 2012 season, expectations for Perez ran very high heading into the 2013 season. He was always known to be a high-average hitter with strong contact rates but he also displayed a strong power surge that many thought would take longer to develop. Unfortunately, that power didn't materialize as expected last season. He ultimately finished the season batting .292 with 13 home runs (.141 ISO) and 79 RBI, numbers more reflective of expectations prior to the 2012 power surge. Perez doesn't walk or strikeout very often, so his on-base totals won't be huge unless he sees a spike in his BABIP. Still, his ability to put bat on ball and hit for a line drive rate above 20-percent, coupled with the fact that he'll hit in the heart of the Royals' lineup, should provide solid, above-average production from behind the plate.

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.
