Salvador Perez Newsbeat

Salvador Perez injured after Drew Butera collided with him at the WBC

Royals catcher Drew Butera tried to score the winning run for Team Italy in the bottom of the ninth inning against Team Venezuela. Unfortunately, Butera ran into the left knee of Venezuela catcher Salvador Perez, his Royals teammate.

Butera told Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com: “I feel really bad. But I thought the ball was going to be in the gap and I was just trying to score. When I saw that I was going to be out by a lot I just stopped. It was unfortunate that I hit him where I did.”

Royals general manager Dayton Moore said that Perez was being taken to a hospital, and that he didn’t expect to know the severity of the injury until Sunday at the earliest.

“He’ll be examined and they’ll go through the proper tests and imaging,” Moore said.

Why is Salvador Perez a bad pitch framer?

In this month’s thread we wondered if maybe Perez’s height had something to do with his poor framing? Do tall catchers do worse? Generally the bottom of the zone is most exploited, and taller players may have issue with the bottom than their shorter stature peers.

At first glance, no, that’s not really the case. Taller catchers don’t appear to be worse pitch framers than shorter catchers, nor do shorter catchers appear to be particularly good just because of their height. Dioner Navarro is the shortest catcher on this list (almost a foot shorter than Matt Wieters) and yet is one of the worst pitch framers out there. Buster Posey and Yasmani Grandal are both average height on here yet both are the best pitcher framers on the board. Also you’ll notice the really small r-squared value of .002, which is effectively 0.000.
