Peraza was optioned to the alternate training site following Wednesday's game. More interesting in fantasy than reality, Peraza doesn't project to be a part of Boston's long-term plans, so the team appears to be clearing space to get Christian Arroyo everyday playing time at second base down the stretch. He hit .225/.275/.342 with one home run and one stolen base in 111 at-bats before being demoted. Peraza will likely be non-tendered this offseason.
