Kansas City Royals All-Star catcher Salvador Perez is not necessarily known for his speed, but on Thursday night he provided us with quite the rarity — a catcher stolen base.
One pitch after Eric Hosmer homered to widen the Royals lead to 5-0 in the third inning, Detroit Tigers starter Michael Fulmer hit Perez with a pitch. Two pitches later, Perez took off and stole second base.
It was Perez’s first steal since 2015.
A Marlins player who is not super happy about this particular stretch of games is Giancarlo Stanton, Miami’s star outfielder and someone the Marlins have recently said they will not take offers for at the trade deadline, despite an imminent sale of the team.
“If you can’t win a series against the worst team in the league, there’s not much going for you, right there.”
Even if the Marlins did decide to try and unload Stanton (and his salary) at this point, and Giancarlo found it in him to waive his no-trade clause for select teams, that 13-year/$325 million contract through 2028 certainly won’t make things easy.
However, considering Stanton’s obvious dissatisfaction, that no-trade clause might be waived sooner than people think, and the fish might have to say goodbye.
