    • Peralta (neck, back) went 3-for-5 with two runs in the Diamondbacks' 11-8 win over the Rockies on Wednesday in the National League wild-card game. The Diamondbacks held Peralta out of the regular-season finale while he dealt with neck and back tightness, but he was never at any serious risk of missing the playoff elimination game. He proved his health by turning in his first three-hit performance since Aug. 23, setting the tone in the leadoff spot for a Diamondbacks lineup that rattled off 17 hits on the night. Peralta will have a tougher task in sparking the offense against a stellar Dodgers starting staff in the divisional round, with the outfielder drawing a tough lefty-on-lefty matchup in Game 1 versus Cy Young contender Clayton Kershaw.

    • Diamondbacks' David Peralta: In Wednesday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Peralta (neck, back) is in the lineup for Wednesday's wild-card game against the Rockies. Peralta missed the regular-season finale with a back and neck tightness, but returns to the lineup for the one-game wild-card tilt against Colorado in the leadoff spot, while manning left field. Since the beginning of September, Peralta is hitting .253/.340/.363 with one home run, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored.

    • Peralta (neck, back) said he expects to play in Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Rockies, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Peralta left Saturday's game with back and neck tightness, but he's apparently feeling much better after sitting out Sunday's regular-season finale. He'll have two more days to rest and get better before Wednesday's playoff bout, so barring any setbacks, Peralta should be good to go against Jon Gray and the Rockies. The 30-year-old has established himself as the Diamondbacks' everyday leadoff hitter thanks to his .293/.352/.444 line through 140 games this season.

    • Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Gets day off Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Peralta is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants. Arizona clinched home-field advantage for the wild-card game with Sunday's win, so Peralta will get the day off as manager Torey Lovullo looks to give his starters a rest. In his place, Gregor Blanco will draw the start in left field.

    • Peralta went 2-for-4 with a walk, run and RBI in Saturday's 12-6 loss to the Marlins. It's the third consecutive two-hit outing for Peralta, who has also racked up five runs and four RBI in those contests. The outfielder boasts a more modest .267/.329/.373 slash line in September, but manager Torey Lovullo has shown no inclination to move Peralta out of the leadoff spot, where he's been a dependable performer for much of the season.
