Salvador Perez of Kansas City Royals returns after 9 game absence

Wide receiver Salvador Perez has been activated from the injured list by the Kansas City Royals and will be in the lineup against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

Pérez missed nine games after spraining his thumb in a game against the Chicago White Sox on May 17. He was placed on the disabled list the next day.

The seven-time All-Star got off to a slow start this season before the injury, hitting just .206 with six home runs and 16 RBIs in 34 games. The 2015 World Series MVP led the majors with 48 home runs and 121 RBI last season.

In a related roster move, the Royals sent catcher Sebastián Rivero to the minors.
