Perdomo was optioned to the Diamondbacks' alternate training site Saturday. Perdomo got his first taste of major-league action early in the 2021 campaign and went 1-for-10 with a run, three walks and two strikeouts in four games. However, he'll head to the team's alternate camp after Nick Ahmed (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Josh Rojas should serve as the backup shortstop for Arizona now that Ahmed is healthy.
Perdomo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game at Colorado. Perdomo is 1-for-9 with one run, two walks and two strikeouts through his first three big-league games, and he will take a seat Wednesday. Josh Rojas is starting at shortstop while Eduardo Escobar and Asdrubal Cabrera start at second and third base, respectively.
Perdomo will start at shortstop and bat eighth Sunday against the Padres. After making his debut off the bench Saturday, Perdomo will enter the starting lineup for the first time as a major leaguer to face right-hander Chris Paddack. The expectation is that Josh Rojas will get the majority of the starts at shortstop while Nick Ahmed (knee) is sidelined, but Perdomo is a top prospect in the organization and his running ability makes him an interesting streamer in leagues that allow daily roster moves.
Perdomo made his MLB debut Saturday and struck out in his lone at-bat in a 7-0 loss to the Padres. Perdomo entered the blowout loss in the eighth inning and got his first MLB at-bat. He's up with Arizona while Nick Ahmed (knee) is on the injured list, but Josh Rojas is expected to get the majority of starts at short, per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com.
Perdomo is being called up to the majors Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Arizona's shortstop of the future, Perdomo is not expected to be up for good, but it sounds like Nick Ahmed (knee) is headed to the injured list, so Perdomo will fill in at the six in the short term. Of course, if he were to really impress, those plans could change. Perdomo lacks big raw power, but the 21-year-old switch hitter has an excellent approach at the plate and is an above-average runner.
