Royals manager Ned Yost believes Salvador Perez will "be all right" after the star catcher suffered a knee injury Saturday while playing for his native Venezuela in the WBC.

Perez injured his left knee in a collision at home plate with Drew Butera, his teammate and backup catcher with the Royals. Team Venezuela said in a statement that Perez was diagnosed with a contusion and that an MRI revealed no damage other than inflammation.

The Royals plan to have Perez take another MRI on Monday when he returns to the team.
