KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - It didn’t take too long for Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez to make an impact on his first game back with the team.

Perez drilled a three-run home-run to left centerfield in his third at-bat on Friday night.

Take a look:

Friday is Perez’s first game since June 21.

He rejoined the Royals today after being out a month due to an injured thumb.
