Royals | Salvador Perez out against Rays

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:55:06 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Drew Butera is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Perez ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The backstop is having a nice month with three home runs, 13 RBI and a .274 batting average, and seasonal owners should be rewarded with a strong finish to the season. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a .537 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players shouldn't count on him Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Perez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday, but take note of his recent 9-for-25 run with a round tripper and five RBI. Perez is worth targeting at FantasyScore in favorable matchups. Check back for updates on his wrist injury. Butera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a career .183/.236/.266 slash line and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.
