Salvador Perez suffered a quad contusion after a scary collision with third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert on Saturday and is expected to be sidelined for the next 7-10 days. Perez is hitting .277/.313/.494 with seven home runs and 25 RBI in 176 plate appearances in 2016. The good news is that the MRI didn’t reveal any structural damage. The Royals have recalled Tony Cruz and he will share the catching duties with Drew Buterawhile Perez is on the shelf.

David Wright, New York Mets
Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that David Wright (neck) may need a disabled list stint.

Matt Cain, San Francisco Giants
Pitcher Matt Cain will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain. Cain suffered the injury during the second inning of Friday's start against the Rockies in Colorado. Former first round pick Chris Stratton is expected to be recalled to take Cain's place on the active roster. Cain owns a 5.20 ERA with only a 6.37 K/9, but before the injury Cain had only allowed four earned runs in 21 innings pitched for a 1.71 ERA.

Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right quadriceps. He injured his quad while running to first base during Friday's game against the Red Sox. Tulo” has struggled all season making contact as he only has 34 hits in 167 at-bats for a .204 batting average. He also has a 49/18 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He does have some power numbers hitting eight home runs and driving in 23. Darwin Barney will handle most of the action at shortstop while he's sidelined
