Royals catcher Salvy Perez appears to be getting on everybody’s last nerve

Is Salvy Perez starting to irritate his teammates?

Are Salvy’s antics gettin’ a little old?

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

KANSAS CITY — There’s no question Kansas City Royals catcher Salvy Perez has evolved into a fan favorite with his signature Gatorade splashes and ill-advised clubhouse videos. Salvy is a mischievous kid trapped inside a grown man’s body. Everybody knows that. But he appears to be losing popularity with his teammates. In other words… if things aren’t rectified soon, the impeccable chemistry that carried the once downtrodden Royals to an improbable World Series title will be flushed down the toilet.

During the first few weeks of the season, Salvy has already managed to agitate starting pitchers Yordano Ventura, Ian Kennedy and Edinson Volquez over disagreements with pitch selection. Salvy was also involved in a highly-publicized confrontation with All-Star closer Wade Davis following a victory.

Both players had to be separated by teammate Kendrys Morales.

Oh, there’s more.

During their postgame interviews, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas were caught on camera on separate occasions urging Salvy to lay off the Gatorade splashes. Then there’s Lorenzo Cain who’s expressed his displeasure with Salvy recording private moments in the clubhouse.

Money (or lack thereof) may also be a factor.

If you recall… last season, Cain was named team MVP and Salvy won World Series MVP. But it was Salvy who inked a lucrative contract extension, not Cain who’s off to a terrible start. Again, something’s not right inside the Royals’ clubhouse and Salvy’s childish behavior may have something to do with it.

Even though he probably means well, is it time for Salvy to tone it down?

  1. The Royals are gonna be ok. This team seems to be a little complacent after winning a world series. They are not paying attention to detail like they normally do. If they get back to the basics, this team will be dangerous by October. GO ROYALS!

  2. Salvy should tone it down just a bit. Gatorade showers get a little old after awhile. The Royals are WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!!! Act like you’ve won before. Chill out with the Gatorade.

  3. SALVY!!! SALVY!!!! SALVY!!!

  4. Wade Davis looked like he wanted to beat Salvy’s ass.

  5. The royals are not focused. We have seen multiple players forget how many outs there are, the defense is shoddy and the pitching is a big question mark. No repeat this year.

  6. I disagree with the article. I love Salvy. He is so genuine. If his teammates cant take a joke thats on them. Salvy, keep doin whatcha do. 🙂

  7. Kansas City loves Salvador! A great guy who plays for a great team. Go Royals!

  8. I can understand how some of Salvy’s antics can piss people off. But you made a great point about Salvy getting a new contract while others didnt. There is probably a lot of jealousy going on in the clubhouse.

  9. Cain got every right to be pissed. He got fucked with no vaseline. The team mvp shouldve got a raise too.

  10. this is bullshit…….. salvy gets along with all his teammates…… this is nothing but tmz style reporting with no substance.

  11. the royals wont make the playoffs this year

  12. I agree. This is not the same team that won the World Series. Could be a long year.

  13. Sorry but the gatorade baths need to go. Kinda childish.

  14. What’s wrong with my Royals?????? 🙁 🙁 🙁
