Manager Torey Lovullo said that
Peralta underwent wrist surgery back in August, but Lovullo seems to be pleased enough with the 29-year-old's past performance to expect him to fill a large role this coming season. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action, but Peralta will likely be an integral part of Arizona's lineup as long as he stays healthy.
Peralta (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.
This was merely a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Peralta was already ruled out for the year after undergoing surgery on his right wrist earlier this month.
Peralta underwent successful surgery on his right wrist Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Injuries plagued Peralta throughout 2016 -- he made three separate trips to the DL -- and this procedure will officially end his campaign. The 28-year-old wasn't awful when on the field, but his production represented a fairly significant step back from his stellar 2015 season (.893 OPS). While the Diamondbacks have not outlined a rehab plan, they are likely hoping to have Peralta close to 100 percent for the start of spring training.
Peralta will undergo a season-ending procedure on his right wrist Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Surgery was already being discussed as an option, and now it's now the confirmed outcome. He will finish his injury-shortened season having collected just four home runs and two stolen bases while slashing .251/.295/.433 over 48 games. Yasmany Tomas (neck), when healthy, figures to continue in the everyday role in right field, with Brandon Drury and Michael Bourn potentially seeing some action there as well.
An MRI on his wrist confirmed the inflammation, and more tests may be necessary before the team makes a final decision. The team's doctors will have to decide between giving Peralta another shot or opting for surgery. In any case, he is likely to miss several weeks, and is worth dropping in shallower formats without DL slots.
