Surprising! Salvador Pérez ‘hot on the heels’ of Vladdy Jr for the Triple Crown

The Season 2021 from MLB it has been the scene of a great competition of hitters looking for individual prizes. One of the ‘hottest’ in recent weeks is that of the Triple Crown of Batting, which has like main candidate for Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Nevertheless, Salvador Pérez is ‘hot on the heels’ of the Dominican for the award.

Salvador Pérez has surprised with his performances with the Kansas City Royals during the 2021 MLB Season, since in recent days he has been on fire with the wood.

His performance has been so consistent that it underpins him as one of the main candidates to stay with the very complicated Triple Crown of Batting that until a few days ago only Vladimir Guerrero Jr. would have been in the conversation.

The Venezuelan is already tied with the Dominican in the home run department, both with 45; but in RBIs he is ahead with 112, which leaves avarage as his greatest weakness, since he is averaging just .278.

Undoubtedly, these last days of the regular calendar of the 2021 MLB Season will be vital in determining whether Salvador Pérez will make history with the Kansas City Royals and displace Vladimir Guerrero Jr. with the Triple Crown.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
