Perez (hip) will remain out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, the Kansas City Star reports.
Perez is still slowed a bit by the deep bruise, but doesn't seem to be bound for the DL at this point. If he's unable to return behind the plate Thursday against the Angels, expect him to receive further examination so the team can pinpoint his exact issue. In the meantime, George Kottaras will handle catching duties for the Royals.
