Peralta (shoulder) has taken swings recently for the first time since landing on the injured list, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Peralta's been dealing with recurring shoulder issues since May and was not the same hitter when he returned from the original injury. He hit .309/.357/.524 before his first stint on the injured list and .252/.342/.388 after. The Diamondbacks have not offered a timetable for Peralta's return, but the outfielder is expected to partake in a rehab assignment.
Peralta (shoulder) is scheduled to resume baseball activities Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Manager Torey Lovullo didn't offer specifics as to when the club expects Peralta to return, but he suggested if the outfielder needs a rehab assignment, it will likely be a short one. "He still has two more days of just conditioning, letting things calm down and heal up a little bit," Lovullo said Saturday afternoon. Peralta has been out since July 3 with inflammation in the AC joint.
Manager Torey Lovullo said the Diamondbacks will be more conservative in bringing Peralta (shoulder) back from the injured list than they were the first time the outfielder landed on the IL, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Peralta was placed on the IL on Friday with inflammation in his right shoulder, the same shoulder that landed him on the injured list in May. He missed 11 games during that first stint, which may have been on the early side. "I think what we've learned with David is he's such a team guy and wants to be out there that we're maybe going to slow-play it until this is all done," Lovullo said. "We're going to be a little bit more cautious." While Peralta is unavailable, at-bats in left field will be split between Jarrod Dyson and Tim Locastro.
Peralta (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. It seems Peralta's MRI didn't show anything worse than right AC joint inflammation, which is great news, though he will still require some down time. Peralta notched three hits Tuesday but has only a .730 OPS in 27 games since his initial return from the shoulder injury. Jarrod Dyson appears likely to see most of the time in left field in Peralta's absence, with Ketel Marte in center and Eduardo Escobar at second.
Peralta (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies. As yet, no results have been released from Peralta's MRI. He left Wednesday's game after feeling discomfort in his right shoulder, the same shoulder that's been bothering him since late May. The overall numbers still look great, but Peralta hasn't been the same hitter since this issue popped up and it would not be a surprise if he were held out at least through the All-Star break. Jarrod Dyson starts in left field Friday.
