SURPRISE, Ariz. — Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez is set to have another test on his left knee after getting injured in a collision with Royals backup catcher Drew Butera in the World Baseball Classic.

Perez is returning to the Royals’ spring training camp on Monday and will have an MRI. The four-time All-Star was hurt Saturday in Mexico while playing for Venezuela and is out of the tournament.

Royals General Manager Dayton Moore said he’s still not at ease with Perez’s injury.

“Not until he gets back playing,” Moore said Sunday. “He has had an MRI. It’s a little inconclusive, but it’s encouraging.”

The original diagnosis was inflammation but no structural damage.

“He’s going to be OK, we think,” Royals Manager Ned Yost said Sunday.

Yost said despite Perez’s injury, he is still in favor of the WBC for the “globalization” of the game.

ROCKIES: The team lost one of its biggest offseason acquisitions when Ian Desmond was hit by a pitch Sunday, breaking his left hand.

Desmond was plunked by Cincinnati right-hander Rookie Davis with a 93 mph fastball in the fourth inning of Colorado’s 9-8 exhibition loss. The team says the preliminary diagnosis on Desmond is a left hand fracture. He will see a specialist Monday.

INDIANS: Second baseman Jason Kipnis is likely to miss opening day because of a sore right shoulder.

Manager Terry Francona said Kipnis will be shut down for two weeks to let him recover.

Kipnis has been dealing with the problem this spring and had a cortisone shot two weeks ago.

RED SOX: Eduardo Rodriguez allowed a run and three hits in four innings Sunday in Boston’s 6-5 exhibition loss to Philadelphia. Rodriguez struck out three and walked one.

Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel pitched the fifth, allowing three runs on two hits. Pablo Sandoval went 2 for 3 with a homer, raising his spring average to .370.

The Phillies’ Daniel Nava went 4 for 4 with a triple, raising his average to .476.

TRADE: Philadelphia acquired switch-pitcher Pat Venditte from Seattle for minor league outfielder Joey Curletta.

The 31-year-old Venditte has pitched three times this spring for Seattle and twice for Italy in the World Baseball Classic.

Venditte had a 5.73 ERA in 15 games for Toronto and the Mariners last year. Able to throw with both arms, he’s 2-2 with a 4.97 ERA in 41 games in the majors.

ORIOLES: Right-hander Chris Tillman didn’t take his scheduled bullpen session Sunday after just 10 warm-up throws caused his shoulder discomfort to crop up, an ominous development in what has already been a cautious camp for the team’s top starting pitcher.
