San Francisco Giants Rumors: Kansas City Royals Catcher On Team's Radar

The Kansas City Royals are expected to be one of the worst teams in the majors this season, so they are reportedly listening to offers for their veteran players. They have no bigger trade chip than Salvador Pérez, and he is, understandably, receiving a lot of interest because of it. One team who is looking to add him is the San Francisco Giants. 

The Giants are looking to get things back on track this season, as they disappointed immensely in 2022. As a result of this, they are looking to make notable splashes, and bringing in a player like Perez would be just that. It is clear that the Giants could use a major upgrade at the catcher position, and there is no better option for them to bring in Perez at this time. Thus, if they can come up with the right offer for him, they need to pull the trigger on this.

Perez would give the Giants an All-Star catcher who thrives both at and behind the plate. Due to this, it is hard to find a single reason why they should not try to make this move, so we will need to wait and see if their interest in Perez results in them winning the sweepstakes from here. Other teams will likely also try to acquire him including the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs.
