Latest Update Peralta drives in two runs in winning effort Mon Jul, 21, 06:26 AM
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.
Peralta logged his second multi-hit game of the second half on Sunday, as he now sits on a .331 average with three home runs, 18 RBI and 19 runs scored through his first 142 at-bats. He has managed to keep up the pace after coming out the gates firing, and should now start to gain some interest from those in deep league formats while continuing to get the job done as he gets regular playing time.

Peralta scored from first on Goldschmidt's walk-off hit in the 10th inning for the winning run showing that his sore groin that kept him out of Tuesday's game must be fine. The 26-year old continues to be on of the few bright spots on a DBacks team that owns the worst record in the NL with a slash line of .325/.351/.460 in 34 games played, unfortunately his days as a starter may be numbered as Mark Trumbo's return from the DL is right around the corner.

Consider Peralta day-to-day for now. He's batting .331 with three home runs, 15 RBI, 17 runs scored and two stolen bases over 121 big league at-bats. We'll see what happens to his playing time once Trumbo returns, but if the Diamondbacks are going to have a fire-sale, Trumbo could be one of the key guys out which would leave things open for PeraltaAnalyst: Howard Bender
Do we have a new P-Diddy in DBack land? The soon to be 27-year old continues to get it done as he now has a four-game hit streak going with three muliti-hit games over that span with two of his three home runs coming over his last seven games.Analyst: Michael Pichan
