Manager Torey Luvollo indicated after the Friday's contest that Peralta's absence was due to illness, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Peralta sat Friday for the first time all month. The left fielder has posted a .400/.459/.818 batting line with six home runs over 13 contests in August and will likely be slotted back into the starting nine as soon as he's feeling well enough to do so.
