Royals' Wily Peralta: Poor showing Monday
Peralta retired two of the four batters he faced in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers in Cactus League play. He conceded a double and a base hit and struck out one in the outing.
Peralta allowed one of the runners he inherited to score and gave up an additional run on Logan Forsythe's two-out double, but he was at least able to close out the fourth inning to end his day. Manager Ned Yost remains non-committal regarding his plans at closer this season, but Peralta is making a case to hold onto the job with a 1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP over five spring appearances. Peralta's top competition for the ninth-inning role, Brad Boxberger, made just his second appearance of the spring Monday after missing nearly two weeks with a leg injury.
