Oswald Peraza News
New York Yankees shortstop Oswald Peraza (knee) has been dealing with some swelling in his left knee and is day-to-day after undergoing an MRI exam on Sunday that came back clean, according to manager Aaron Boone. The Yankees have a doubleheader on tap on Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox, but there's no guarantee that Peraza will be able to play in either game as he deals with a knee injury. The 23-year-old has really struggled in 36 games for the Yanks in his second major-league season in 2023, going 21-for-112 (.188) with no home runs, five doubles, 10 RBI, four stolen bases and eight runs scored in 126 plate appearances. Since being called back up from the minors on Aug. 22, Peraza has gone 12-for-60 (.200) with four doubles, four RBI and three runs scored in 17 games (16 starts).
The New York Yankees recalled a pair of prospects on Monday as infielder Oswald Peraza and outfielder Everson Pereira will join the club for Tuesday's series opener versus the Baltimore Orioles. Peraza, 23, has appeared in 19 games with the Yankees this season, hitting .173 with four stolen bases and a .520 OPS across 64 trips to the plate. He has fared much better at Triple-A Wilkes-Barre where he has hit .268 with 14 homers, 16 stolen bases, and an .836 OPS across 300 plate appearances. Tuesday could mark the big-league debut for Pereira, 22, who has done some serious damage as Peraza's teammate at Triple-A this season. The club's second-ranked prospect has hit a hefty .312 with eight homers, four stolen bases, and a .937 across 35 games after a successful 46-game stint at Double-A to begin the season.
The New York Yankees reinstated shortstop Oswald Peraza (ankle) from the 10-day injured list after Friday night's game and optioned him to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Peraza will most likely be back with the Yankees at some point this year, but he really struggled to a .188 batting average (6-for-32) with a double, three RBI, two stolen bases, four runs scored and six strikeouts in 12 games played in just his second major-league season. Meanwhile, rookie Anthony Volpe continues to operate as the team's starting shortstop at the big-league level. The 22-year-old Peraza's single-year stock is down and he can probably be left to the waiver wire in mixed leagues, but this isn't the last we'll see of him this year.
The potential starting shortstop for the New York Yankees, Oswald Peraza, has the tools fantasy baseball owners covet. He could be a five-category contributor with a little more seasoning. According to MLB.com, he has a 55-hit tool, 50-power tool, and 60-run tool, as well as one of the loudest bats in the system. Combine those with being in a potent lineup, and you can see the excitement. Peraza received a cup of coffee with the big league squad at the end of 2022 and produced a .306 average and .404 on-base percentage across 18 games. Peraza took a 2021 breakout to get noticed, and he's now a top-100 prospect. The 22-year-old stole 33 bases and hit 19 homers during 99 games in AAA last season, so the production is also there. If he wins the starting gig in New York, expect a 15-homer, 15-steal season from a shortstop, though his average may be closer to .260 than .300. ATC is on board with this assessment and projects a .247/.305/.390 slash line with eight homers, 31 RBI, 34 runs, and 12 stolen bases over 79 games. Peraza should provide double-digit steals and is a solid pick at his current ADP of 243.
