Peralta is not starting Tuesday's game against the Pirates. Peralta will sit against lefty Tyler Anderson after logging a double and triple in Monday's win. Josh Rojas will shift to left field as Andrew Young mans the keystone.
Peralta went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple in Monday's 4-2 win over the Pirates. Peralta notched a two-out triple in the fifth, but the Diamondbacks were unable to bring him home. A similar situation happened the next time up, as he hit a two-out double but was left stranded in scoring position once again. Monday was his first game with multiple extra-base hits since June 11, but he's tripled twice in July.. For the year, Peralta is slashing .254/.328/.399 with four homers, 41 RBI, 32 runs scored, a steal and a 32:53 BB:K over 345 plate appearances. He's showcasing underwhelming power, as his .399 slugging percentage would be the lowest mark of his career.
Peralta went 2-for-4 with a run, RBI and strikeout in Arizona's 5-2 triumph over the Dodgers on Friday. Peralta reached base in his final two at-bats with an RBI single in the seventh and another single followed with a run in the ninth. The outfielder has cooled after a blistering month and a half to open the season -- he hasn't homered since May 15 -- and is now slashing .256/.323/.399.
Peralta isn't starting Thursday's game against the Rockies. Peralta had started in each of the last four games, going 3-for-13 with a double, three RBI and two runs. Josh Rojas will take his place in left field while Josh VanMeter starts at second base.
Peralta went 1-for-2 with two walks, a hit by pitch, a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Colorado. With the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, Peralta absorbed a hit-by-pitch to produce Arizona's walkoff victory. He was able to extend his hit streak to four games and post his first multi-RBI game since June 15. After a robust April, Peralta has scuffled the last two months, posting a .239 average and .666 OPS with one home run and 18 RBI over 55 games since May 1.
