Salvador Perez wants a new contract? Get in line…


When Salvador Perez first signed a five-year contract extension for only $7 Million, fans were ecstatic. They knew it was a bargain, the Kansas City organization knew it was a bargain. Salvador Perez was the only one under the impression that he was hitting a major jackpot.

In 2011 when he made his debut, you could tell that he was going to be something special. Perez was 1-for-3 in his debut against Tampa Bay, and picked off a runner from first and third base. He hasn’t looked back since. 2015 is his third full season in the majors, and he’s the leading vote getter thus far in the 2015 All-Star Game. He’s been to two already, and has won back-to-back Gold Gloves. With these types of credentials, $7 million over that span of time is a straight steal, and Perez has come to realize it now, too. Here’s what Perez had to say in an interview with Yahoo! Sports:

I want to stay here. I want to spend my career here. That’s the team that gave me an opportunity when I was 16 years old. Perez was then asked about his contract. He said this, “I don’t like to think about that [contract]. But in the back of my head, I start to think about it. Hopefully, they can do something different to me.

Perez’s inquiry about his contract isn’t outrageous. Here’s a guy that comes from nothing, to a guy making over a million a year. He knows his worth, but so do the Royals. They certainly are not obligated to re-work anything, and God knows that the checkbook of the Glass family isn’t exactly “open.”

Offensively, Perez leaves something to be desired. His OPS has dropped from .798 in 2012 all the way to .692 at the end of last season. He has a K/BB ratio of 85/22, and continues to show poor plate discipline. Perez was thought to be a home run hitter, but he has failed to reach 20 in a single season thus far, and is only on track for 18 this year. Perez later told Yahoo! Sports this when asked about his contract again:

When I signed my contract, I was 100 percent sure I wanted to sign it. I didn’t want to feel like, ‘Why am I doing that?’ But I didn’t know what kind of player I was going to be like. I hope Kansas City sees what kind of person I am, what kind of player I am, and maybe think about signing me again.

If he were to get a contract re-worked, it would almost have to wait until next season. The Royals still need to get something figured out with Alex Gordon. If one had to guess, Perez is between third and fifth on the list to get a new contract behind Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain. Kansas City doesn’t owe Perez anything, but he’s earned it.

Stay tuned and #ForeverRoyal.
