Overland Park man buys baseball from Eric Hosmer’s World Series dash, loans it to Royals Hall of Fame

Then Lucas saw JB044155 and this description:

Session Name: 2015 WORLD SERIES GAME 5 KC@NYM

Session Date: November 1, 2015

Additional Information: BATTER — SALVADOR PEREZ, PITCHER — JEURYS FAMILIA, TOP OF 9, GROUND OUT

Lucas did a double-take. Wasn’t that the ball Mets first baseman Lucas Duda threw away as Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer dashed home to tie Game 5 of the 2015 World Series?

Royals, Salvador Perez “Moving Close” To Extension - MLB Trade Rumors

I look forward to the Jon Singleton renegotiation. Perez shouldn’t say anything bad about Royals ownership ever.

The Royals have officially agreed to a new contract with catcher Salvador Perez. The deal covers six years for the Beverly Hills Sports Council client, including the coming season, and does not include any options. It guarantees three preexisting club options and adds two new seasons at the back end, with a total guarantee of $52.5MM.

All told, then, Perez will be promised the payouts contemplated in his original extension in addition to receiving $36MM in new money. Part of that comes in the form of a $6MM signing bonus, so there’s some added cash coming to Perez up front. His new 2017 salary will be $3MM, and he’ll earn $7.5MM and then $10MM in the two seasons to follow before taking home $13MM annually in the two new years covered by the deal.

A contract restructuring has long been said to be in the works between the sides. Perez was playing under an early-career deal that allowed the club to control him through 2019, via club options, for the relatively meager sum of $16.5MM. The original contract, negotiated by his prior agents, promised him just $7MM over five years, though of course it was reached before he had even logged a full season in the majors.

Source: Royals extend All-Star Salvador Perez through 2021

How does this not include an endorsement deal with Gatorade?

All-Star catcher Salvador Perez and the Kansas City Royals agreed on a restructured contract that will keep him with the reigning champions through 2021 and give the World Series MVP another $36 million in guaranteed money, a source close to the team told Yahoo Sports.

The deal for the 25-year-old, which is expected to be announced Tuesday, begins in 2017 and lasts five years. It represents a compromise between Perez, who signed one of the team-friendliest contracts ever in 2012 after his rookie season, and the Royals, who rewarded their most popular player with money more commensurate to his performance.

Perez’s original five-year, $7 million contract included three club options that after his three All-Star appearances and Gold Gloves jumped to a combined $16.5 million. The new contract, which begins after Perez makes $2 million this season, pays him a $6 million signing bonus, increases the value of the three option years to $20.5 million and guarantees him $13 million per year in 2020 and 2021.

A negotiation between Salvador Perez and the Royals, without precedent or animosity, is picking up | The Kansas City Star

“I want to be George Brett,” Perez says. “I want to be like Frank White, like Alex Gordon. One of those guys. Because this team gave me the opportunity to play in the big leagues.”

Negotiations are impossible to predict, but there is an openness from the team’s side that didn’t exist before.

As an organization, the Royals credit much of their success to a relentlessly supportive culture for their players, and rewriting a lopsided contract for one of their most important players would be a tangible and undeniable sign of their commitment to maintaining that. Rafa Nieves, Perez’s agent, said that “there’s been some movement” and he has “a 50-50 feeling” that a new deal will be done by opening day.
