David Peralta News
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David Peralta isn't in the team's lineup on Monday for a matchup with the Boston Red Sox and veteran left-handed starter Rich Hill. Peralta is batting .249 with a .313 on-base percentage, 12 home runs, and a stolen base in 486 plate appearances this season. Instead, Manuel Margot will move over to right field with Jose Siri entering the lineup in center field. Siri is batting ninth against Hill and the Red Sox on Monday. He's logged a .214 average to go along with a .270 on-base percentage, seven home runs, and 14 stolen bases in 319 plate appearances this season. The outfielder could be worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers in deeper leagues.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David Peralta was removed from Sunday's contest against the Astros early with an apparent injury. There hasn't been an official reason given as to why he left the game but beat writer Mark Topkin noted that Peralta was "grimacing after his swing and looking uncomfortable as he ran to 1B" following his first at-bat of the contest. The veteran outfielder was replaced by Jonathan Aranda. The team should provide a reason for the early exit soon enough.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder David Peralta (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Manager Kevin Cash has opted to give some of his left-handed batters a rest against southpaw DL Hall. Roman Quinn will cover right field and bat eighth in this game. Fantasy managers should expect Peralta to be in the lineup for their next contest. Quinn doesn't offer enough upside with the bat to warrant using as a reliable streaming option.
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.
