KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT) – Royals catcher Salvador Perez is out for a least two weeks due to a sprained left thumb.

The injury happened Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox.

ESPN said Perez told reporters he was injured when he swung through a pitch during his first at-bat against Chicago’s Dylan Cease. He left the game in the seventh inning because he was having trouble gripping the bat.

This is a developing story.
