3. Salvador Perez

It seems like every week, we are amazed at the difference an offseason and health have made for Salvador Perez. No longer dealing with the bumps and bruises accumulated through an entire season, Perez is looking like that star catcher that we all know he can be.

Over the past week, as Perez played every day, he produced a .360/.385/.440 batting line, hitting two doubles and driving in three. He had his typically solid defense, gunning down those foolish enough to attempt to steal against him. You know, a typical Salvador Perez week.

The only possible concern is that this hot start may not be able to hold up. Once again, Perez has played every day for the Royals, making the random Erik Kratz appearances that much more noteworthy. At some point, the Royals will need to give him a day or two off, just to keep him from wearing down in the second half.

For now, the Royals are certainly enjoying the start they have gotten from Salvador Perez. While he is still healthy and relatively fresh, he is proving why he is considered one of the best catchers in baseball.
