Rays' David Peralta: Hitting well with Rays
Peralta went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored Monday against the Yankees.
Peralta led off the fourth inning with a triple and was driven in by Isaac Paredes one batter later. Peralta has consistently hit in the top half of the order since joining the Rays -- primarily cleanup -- and has maintained a .282 average with four RBI and two runs scored across 10 games. He may dip in the order upon the return of Manuel Margot (knee) and/or Harold Ramirez (thumb), but Peralta should still get regular at-bats in the outfield when righties are on the mound....

Rays' David Peralta: Takes seat Sunday
Peralta is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The lefty-hitting Peralta could see most of his days off against lefties moving forward, but he'll exit the Tampa Bay lineup for the first time since being acquired from the Diamondbacks on July 30 while Detroit brings a righty (Matt Manning) to the hill.

Rays' David Peralta: First hits in Tampa Bay
Peralta went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Peralta collected his first hit as a Ray with a single in the fourth inning before tallying an RBI knock in the sixth frame. He's hit sixth and fifth in the order in each of his first two appearances with the club and was notably included in the lineup with a lefty starter on the mound Wednesday. Given the depleted state of Tampa Bay's outfield, Peralta should remain a near everyday player for the foreseeable future.

Rays' David Peralta: Dealt to Rays
Peralta was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Rays in exchange for catching prospect Christian Cerda on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Peralta went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Padres.
Peralta snapped an 11-game homer drought with his 12th blast of the season. The 34-year-old outfielder's playing time has dwindled in 2022, as manager Torey Lovullo has taken to sitting him against southpaws -- just 35 at-bats against lefties. In the final year of a contract, Peralta is a prime candidate to be traded in the next few weeks to a team in need of a left-handed bat.... See More ... See Less
