Royals won’t listen to offers for Salvador Perez

Admirable, or an admission there’s not much they could get for him?

The catcher market is so saturated that I'm sure the offers are exactly pouring in. There's going to be some big names left out whenever the off-season game of musical chairs ends.

He is a 28 year old catcher; he will be finished as a useful player by the next time the Royals are a competitive team. Why on earth would they take that position, unless it is posturing to up someone else's offer?

Probably because at 3/40 remaining contract, a 2.5 WAR C, with a ton of miles on him doesn't have much value.

No point in taking the PR hit for 2 C+ prospects.

I also don't want to pay top dollar for a nice car my neighbor has run into the ground.

It depends on how much they value his ability to coach and develop pitchers, if he has a similar reputation of doing that as Yadier does, then it might make sense for them to keep him around just to help ease their young pitchers transition from the minors to the majors. Instead of watching them struggle with a lesser catcher.

Maybe they want offers via mime.

3/$40 for a 2.5 WAR under-30 player is expensive now?

No, it's fair. Maybe $10-15M in surplus. It's not bringing back a haul.

Perez has a crazy level of consistency for a high risk position

Today I learned that Salvador Perez is 28. Man, I would have guessed at least 5 years higher.

His knees are 35.
