Latest Update David Peralta is not in the Diamondbacks' starting lineup Tuesday. Tue Sep, 23, 05:06 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.
Cody Ross is going to get the start in place of Peralta. This is an odd situation as the Diamondbacks are going against a right handed starting pitcher, but are choosing to start Ross instead of Peralta. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Peralta was out for quite a while with a back injury, but was back on the field Friday, going 0-1. He'll likely see a solid amount of playing time for the remainder of the season as long as his back is feeling ok. Analyst: Ben Diamond
He has been out since September 5, while dealing with a back issue. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
That seems promising, but Cody Ross will continue to start in right in place of Peralta. With the Ross production, Peralta's owners and the Diamondback fans are hoping he will return to the lineup soon.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
