David Peralta News
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is heading to the bench for Tuesday's game against left-hander Trevor Rogers and the Miami Marlins. Cooper Hummel will be covering Peralta's usual left field post in the game. Hummel will also serve as the team's leadoff hitter. Peralta had his best offensive game of the year so far on Monday as he went 3-for-4 and hit his third home run of the season. He's slashing .227/.294/.413 over 23 games on the year. He's gone just 1-for-10 in at-bats against lefties. Expect to see him back in the lineup against right-hander Elieser Hernandez on Wednesday.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies. He will head to the bench after driving in a run in back-to-back games. Barring a pinch-hit appearance, the Diamondbacks outfielder will finish the 2021 campaign slashing .259/.324/.402 with eight homers, 63 RBI, 57 runs scored, and two stolen bases over 537 plate appearances. Henry Ramos is starting in left field and batting sixth in Sunday's game. Ramos has struggled at the plate in 20201, slashing .191/.235/.298 over 51 plate appearances. Fantasy managers can avoid using Ramos as a streamer on Sunday.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta will take a seat on Monday against Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Peralta owns just a .691 OPS off of lefties this season, so it wouldn't be a good matchup. On the year, he's slashing .263/.327/.414 with eight home runs and two stolen bases over 133 games. He's irrelevant in most formats and is more of a streaming option against righties. Henry Ramos will take Peralta's spot in left field and bat sixth. Ramos has played in just five games thus far but is slugging .571 in 14 plate appearances. He put up a 1.021 OPS in Triple-A this season and could be a low-risk pick-up for fantasy managers.
Peralta finished in the Top 15 in BA last year with a ,300 BA, but that number is revealed to be stilted when you consider the .361 BABIP. Peralta's xBA was .263. He certainly is not an asset in power anymore, as the ISO has fallen 90 points over the past three seasons. Peralta has not made any real adjustments in Launch Angle, as his number remained in a consistent range at 6.4. The Exit Velocity also dipped a bit to 89.2 and the Hard Hit % fell from 40.9 to 36.3. There is no real reason for optimism at age 33. You are only going to get a mediocre to decent BA out of Peralta with some respectable pop. He is not making any apparent adjustments to his approach and trying to maintain his ho-hum levels of production. Peralta's ADP of 273 demonstrates what he is truly is, a player with little to no upside who you hope does not continue to fade if you settle for him as a late final pick for your outfield. Peralta did finish well in September/October, at .333 with 11 RBI. He will continue to hit sixth or seventh in the Arizona lineup. If you find yourself sighing and taking Peralta late, he figures to be just a decent stopgap in your lineup until you find someone more appealing.
