One of the most popular Catchers in recent memory, Salvador Perez has also proven to be one of the better defensive ones too.

As of this writing, Perez is still with Kansas City and has been named an All-Star in six of them.  To date, Perez has been a Gold Glove winner five times and had a Defensive bWAR over 2.0 three times.  The Venezuelan has shown some good power (though awful On Base Percentage with a career OBP under .300) with four straight 20 Home Run seasons and two Silver Sluggers. 

There is still plenty of time for his ranking to rise, although he is coming off of Tommy John Surgery that took him out of the 2019 season.
