      Reds' Jose Peraza: Blocked at second base

      Jose Peraza's path to playing time got more crowded with the Cincinnati Reds' acquisition of Freddy Galvis, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.Peraza is already a spot starter, but with Galvis getting most of his playing time at second base, that's one less position for Peraza to play. He'll still play a little left field and get an odd start at shortstop or second, but with Josh VanMeter also displaced, those opportunities will become less frequent for Peraza.

      Reds' Jose Peraza: Starting streak ends

      Jose Peraza is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.With Jose Iglesias missing the prior three games due to injuries and the Cincinnati Reds in the midst of a schedule featuring several opposing left-handed starters, Peraza has cracked the lineup in nine of the past 10 games. He batted a respectable .294 during that span, but it might not be enough for Peraza to retain ample work in the middle infield. In addition to Iglesias rejoining the lineup Monday, the Reds also scooped Freddy Galvis up off waivers from the Blue Jays. Galvis' arrival likely leaves him, Iglesias, Peraza and Josh VanMeter to contend for starts at either second base or shortstop in any given game.

      Reds' Jose Peraza: Takes seat Sunday

      Jose Peraza is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.Following Wednesday's trade that sent Scooter Gennett to the Giants, Peraza started in the middle infield in the Cincinnati Reds' subsequent three games. While Jose Iglesias appears locked in as the everyday shortstop, Peraza should get the chance to fight with Josh VanMeter and Derek Dietrich for playing time at the keystone the rest of the way.

      Reds' Jose Peraza: Playing time increase likely

      Jose Peraza will likely see some starts at second base and in the outfield following the trades of Scooter Gennett and Yasiel Puig before Wednesday's trade deadline.It's been an awfully disappointing season for Peraza, to the extent that the Cincinnati Reds might have a tough decision this offseason about whether to tender a contract and be subject to arbitration. He's hitting .237/.284/.359 on the season, but the Reds will probably want to see as much as possible from him if/when they decide they're out of the wild-card race.

      Reds' Jose Peraza: Bags four hits

      Jose Peraza went 4-for-6 with a triple, three RBI and two runs Saturday in the Cincinnati Reds' 17-9 win over the Rockies.Peraza was one of several players to take advantage of the favorable offensive conditions at Coors Field, as he matched his hit output from his previous 10 games combined. Though Peraza would likely make for an appealing DFS option if he joins the starting nine again Sunday in the series finale in Colorado, his season-long fantasy value remains limited while he fills only a part-time role for the Reds.

      Reds' Jose Peraza: Two mental errors

      Jose Peraza went 1-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Angels, but made two critical mistakes that contributed to the loss, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports. He got picked off first base early in the game, then later lost track of outs after catching a fly ball in left field, allowing a runner to score from second base after tagging up.Peraza is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game, but he's set to lose some playing time once Scooter Gennett returns this weekend. It's been a disappointing season -- not only is Peraza hitting .224, but he's only 5-for-9 on the basepaths after tallying 23 stolen bases last season.
