Pérez is on fire and appears to be hunting Shohei Ohtani in the AL home run lead in the 2021 Major League Baseball season, as he is three (3) home runs away, as the Japanese hit his 43rd of the season last night.
Due to the homerun rhythm that Salvador Pérez has in the last games in the MLB with games of at least two homers and since Ohtani has fallen, it seems feasible that the Venezuelan reach, pass and beat the Japanese, even also that he can hit 50 home runs this season, something that would not only lead the catcher to continue to rewrite the history of the Royals, but also to another level in the Major Leagues as a superstar.

With this contract extension, the Royals not only recognized that Salvador Pérez is one hundred percent (%) and ready to continue being a star, even a superstar in MLB, in addition, they adjusted what some considered had been a robbery without a pistol when they extended him for the first time your contract.
Not just history in the Royals
