Latest Update David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 27, 04:42 PM
Generally, he makes consistent contact at the dish and his walk/strikeout ratio is usually pretty good. Can steal a few bases and hit a few home runs.
Flaws: : Is not an above-average defender, and his arm probably limits him to left field. Also needs to prove he can hit left-handed pitching with regularity.
With lefty Clayton Kershaw on the mound for the Dodgers, the Diamondbacks will stack some righties in their lineup. Perlata takes a seat in favor of the right-handed Alfredo Marte.Analyst: Howard Bender
Peralta is now slashing .290/.320/.461 with six home runs and 31 RBI through 245 at-bats as he continues to be a pleasant surprise in the desert. With Paul Goldschmidt out of action, Peralta has now slid into the three-hole for the Diamondbacks and with any luck will be able to keep being put in high leverage situations leading to solid fantasy production the rest of the way. This Diamondbacks outfielder should now be owned in all but the shallowest of league formats moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Peralta stayed hot Saturday night and is now 12-for-30 (.400 BA) with two home runs, 10 RBI, six runs scored and two stolen bases in the month of August as his solid rookie campaign continues. Considering he has now maintained a batting average north of .330 over 209 at-bats (.321 BA), it is time to start taking Peralta serious , especially since he has now logged five home runs since his promotion. Those in need of outfield depth in deep leagues will want to give him a look down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With the departure of Gerrado Parra, Peralta becomes a slightly more enticing player to considering owning in 12-team or deeper leagues, especially if he is going to hit like he has over his last four games. The left-handed hitting outfielder is hitting .438 (7-for-16) with a home run, a triple, a double, three RBI, three runs scored, and two walks to one strikeout over that span.Analyst: Michael Pichan
