The Kansas City Royals today announced that Salvador Perez suffered an injury to his right elbow during Wednesday’s workout in Surprise, Ariz. He underwent Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) on Thursday which revealed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament. The All-Star catcher will travel to Los Angeles early next week to get a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

Perez, 28, has played in only one Cactus League game this spring, serving as the designated hitter on Tuesday against the Dodgers.
