Yankees' Jose Peraza: Misses roster spot
Peraza was reassigned to the Yankees' minor-league spring training Friday.
Pereza joined New York as a non-roster invitee but was unable to nab a spot on the Opening Day roster. He appeared in 64 games for the Mets last season and hit .204/.266/.380 with six home runs and 20 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jose Peraza: Gets minor-league deal with Yankees
Peraza signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Monday, Eli Fishman of Pinstriped Pros reports.
Primarily a second baseman -- though he can also play around the diamond in a pinch -- Peraza hit .204/.266/.380 with six home runs and one steal in 64 games with the Mets last season. He gives the Yankees some extra infield depth after Tyler Wade moved on from the organization earlier this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Jose Peraza: Becomes free agent
Peraza declined an outright assignment to the minors Friday and elected free agency.
Peraza filled in for the injury-plagued Mets during the first half but wound up missing most of the second half with a fractured finger. His defensive versatility and speed could help him land somewhere this offseason in a bench role, but his .229/.279/.353 slash line over the last three seasons makes him rather unexciting even in that capacity....

Mets' Jose Peraza: Activated by Mets
Peraza (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Peraza spent just over two weeks at Triple-A Syracuse on a rehab assignment, and he hit .250 with two doubles, four runs, four RBI and a stolen base. The 27-year-old had been on the injured list since July 20 due to a fractured right middle finger, and he'll serve as utility depth for the major-league club after Albert Almora was sent down Wednesday....

Mets' Jose Peraza: Rehabbing at Triple-A
Peraza (finger) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Aug. 31 and has gone 9-for-36 (.250 average) with four runs, four RBI, a stolen base and a 2:2 BB:K in 10 games.
The veteran infielder has been on the 10-day injured list since July 20 after fracturing a finger on his right hand while turning a double play in a game against the Reds. Since Peraza has been on the shelf, the Mets acquired Javier Baez and got Francisco Lindor back from the IL, so the team doesn't have much of a need for Peraza to provide depth in the middle infield. He'll likely be activated from the IL and optioned to Syracuse once his rehab window comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Lands on IL
The Mets placed Peraza on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a fractured right middle finger, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peraza likely suffered the injury in Monday's game, in which he entered as a substitution and had two at-bats. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined by the fractured finger. Geoff Hartlieb was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Homers as pinch hitter
Peraza hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in a 4-3 win over Milwaukee in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.
The infielder tied the game at 2-2 with a one-out solo shot in the bottom of the seventh inning. Peraza has mostly worked in a bench role lately with Jonathan Villar back in action. Through 47 games, Peraza has six homers, 18 RBI and 18 runs scored.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Starting Saturday
Peraza (illness) is starting Saturday against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peraza wasn't available for Friday's doubleheader due to a minor illness, but he'll return to action a day later. The 27-year-old will start at second base and bat seventh.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Dealing with illness
Peraza is dealing with a "little bug" per manager Luis Rojas and wasn't available for Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Peraza has seen sporadic playing time recently, but he wasn't even available off the bench during Friday's twin bill. It's not yet clear when he'll be ready for game action again.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Pops fifth homer
Peraza went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 6-2 loss to the Nationals during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.
The infielder spoiled Jon Lester's bid for a seven-inning shutout, but it was the only highlight of the nightcap for the Mets. Each of Peraza's last two hits have left the yard, giving him five homers on the year, but he's seeing little playing time at the moment and remains a likely candidate to lose his roster spot when Jeff McNeil (hamstring) returns....

Mets' Jose Peraza: Losing work to Guillorme
Peraza is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Peraza will sit for the third day in a row in favor of Luis Guillorme, who appears to have overtaken him as the Mets' top option at second base. Since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on April 30, Peraza has handled a near-everyday role for the banged-up Mets for much of the past month and a half, batting .209 with four home runs and no stolen bases across 98 plate appearances. If Jeff McNeil (hamstring) returns from the 10-day injured list this weekend, Peraza could be optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move, while Guillorme moves into more of a utility role in the infield....

Mets' Jose Peraza: Goes deep Sunday
Peraza went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-3 loss to San Diego.
Peraza gave the Mets a 2-1 lead with his two-run blast in the fifth inning. The infielder has hit two homers in his last six games. He's still slashing a paltry .209/.265/.385 with four long balls, 12 RBI and 13 runs scored across 98 plate appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Smashes third home run
Peraza went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two strikeouts as New York defeated San Diego 4-0 Saturday.
Peraza got New York on the board with his fifth-inning solo home run and later walked in the eighth. The long ball snapped a 1-for-17 stretch as Peraza looks to build momentum with consistent playing time.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Homers in win
Peraza went 1-for-2 with a solo home run during the first game of Thursday's doubleheader win over the Rockies.
Leading off the third inning, Peraza produced the game's only offense by taking German Marquez deep with a 367-shot to deep left center. It was the second long ball of the year for the 27-year-old, who is batting .213/.260/.383 overall.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Drives in two in Game 2
Peraza went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a walk in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
After homering in the matinee of Thursday's doubleheader for the game's only run, Peraza knocked in a run on a single and drew a bases loaded walk in the nightcap. The 27-year-old is slashing .224/.283/.388 with a pair of homers, nine RBI and five runs in 153 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Starting Monday
Peraza (calf) will bat sixth and play second base Monday against the Rockies.
Peraza had been out of the lineup since leaving Friday's game against the Marlins after getting hit in the calf by a pitch, though he appeared off the bench in each of the next two games. He'll be involved from the start of this one and will look to improve upon his .211/.268/.342 slash line.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Remains out Sunday
Peraza (calf) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peraza will sit for the second straight game after suffering a bruised calf when hit by a pitch Friday. Jonathan Villar will shift to the keystone while Brandon Drury starts at third base Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Exits with bruised calf
Peraza exited Friday's game against the Marlins with a right calf bruise suffered on a fourth inning hit-by-pitch, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Peraza was 0-for-1 before being pulled. He should be considered day-to-day for now. Wilfredo Tovar replaced him at second base.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Homers in loss
Peraza went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 12-5 loss to the Rays.
The infielder got a middle-middle slider from Rays starter Shane McClanahan with two men on and didn't miss it, launching a homer to left-center field. Peraza has provided a nice spark since re-joining the Mets at the end of April, hitting .300 and aiding the team's offensive turnaround this month. He's unlikely to usurp Jeff McNeil as the starting second baseman, but he'll likely continue seeing occasional starts against left-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jose Peraza: Drives in two runs
Peraza went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a strikeout during Wednesday's 7-1 win against the Orioles.
The 27-year-old received the start at second base with Jeff McNeil (cramp) sitting out, and he delivered his first two RBI of the season. Peraza should return to a bench role relatively quickly with McNeil not expected to miss much time.... See More ... See Less
