David Peralta News
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is getting the day off on Sunday vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. This appears to just be a routine day of rest for the veteran outfielder. He's gone 3-for-22 over the last five games and the D-Backs have lost 13 straight contests. Tim Locastro is starting in left field in Peralta's place with Josh Reddick starting in right and Ketel Marte manning center field. Peralta is having another solid season at the dish overall, slashing .263/.320/.442 with 12 doubles, five triples, four home runs, and 30 RBI over 190 at-bats.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta went 2-for-5 with a home run in an 11-4 win over the Nationals on Saturday. It was Peralta's fourth home run of the season, as he extended his hitting streak to five games. During this streak, Peralta is slashing .381/.409/.762 with three doubles, one triple, one home run, five RBI and four runs scored. He's been one of the better outfield options in fantasy this season, and is still available in nearly 40 percent of leagues.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta snapped a 1-for-18 skid on Monday night, as he finished 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, one RBI and a run scored in a 5-2 win over the Marlins. It was his first multi-hit performance since May 2, while his double and triple were his first extra-base hits since May 1. Despite the slow start to May, Peralta continues to be a productive outfielder in fantasy as he is slashing .270/.336/.467 with three home runs, one steal, 24 RBI and 17 runs scored in 33 games.
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.
