The Mets placed Peraza on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured right middle finger, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Peraza likely suffered the injury in Monday's game, in which he entered as a substitution and had two at-bats. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined by the fractured finger. Geoff Hartlieb was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move Tuesday.
Peraza hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in a 4-3 win over Milwaukee in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader. The infielder tied the game at 2-2 with a one-out solo shot in the bottom of the seventh inning. Peraza has mostly worked in a bench role lately with Jonathan Villar back in action. Through 47 games, Peraza has six homers, 18 RBI and 18 runs scored.
Peraza (illness) is starting Saturday against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Peraza wasn't available for Friday's doubleheader due to a minor illness, but he'll return to action a day later. The 27-year-old will start at second base and bat seventh.
Peraza is dealing with a "little bug" per manager Luis Rojas and wasn't available for Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Peraza has seen sporadic playing time recently, but he wasn't even available off the bench during Friday's twin bill. It's not yet clear when he'll be ready for game action again.
Peraza went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 6-2 loss to the Nationals during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader. The infielder spoiled Jon Lester's bid for a seven-inning shutout, but it was the only highlight of the nightcap for the Mets. Each of Peraza's last two hits have left the yard, giving him five homers on the year, but he's seeing little playing time at the moment and remains a likely candidate to lose his roster spot when Jeff McNeil (hamstring) returns.
