Profile: Perez seems to be catching every game for the Royals. Over the past four seasons, he has played in 569 games, trailing only Buster Posey at catcher. While Perez’s catching traits are some the league’s best, they don’t count in fantasy. The 26-year-old has transformed himself from being a source of batting average to a source of power. His batting average is on a five-year decline (.301 to .292 to .260 to .260 to .247), which matches up with his strikeout rate going up (9% to 12% to 14% to 15% to 22%) as his contact rate has shrunk (91% to 87% to 85% to 83% to 79%). At the same time, his home runs have gone up each season (11 to 13 to 17 to 21 to 22). The change has morphed Perez into the standard catcher: all power, no average. Finding a positive for 2017 is tough. He has no speed and he rarely walks. Maybe his 22% strikeout rate may regress after jumping 7% in 2016. Finally, Perez wears down as the season goes on because he is used so much. His career triple slash line is.282/.312/.456 in the season's first half and.263/.293/.410 in the second. Owners can try to ride the productive first half and then trade him before his production drops. (Jeff Zimmerman)

The Quick Opinion: Perez may be a bit overrated, but he is still productive compared to other catchers. He has changed his profile from high average, low power to low average, high power.
