Peraza went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in a 10-9 loss against the Rockies on Sunday.
The 25-year-old smashed a pinch-hit homer to pull the Reds within a run during the sixth, but those were the last runs of the game. Peraza stayed in the contest as part of a double-switch and received another at-bat during the ninth but struck out. He went 5-for-8 (.625) with two extra-base hits and five RBI during the weekend series against the Rockies. Peraza is batting .236 with six homers, 25 RBI, 26 runs and five steals in 233 at-bats this season.
Peraza went 4-for-6 with a triple, three RBI and two runs Saturday in the 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.
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.
With Nick Senzel out with a migraine Saturday, Peraza is getting the start in center field.
Peraza had a big two-run triple in Friday's win over the Brewers. This will be his sixth start in the last eight games. When Scooter Gennett returns, it's going to be more difficult to get Peraza opportunities to start.
Peraza will start at shortstop and bat sixth Monday against the Astros, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peraza will enter the lineup for the second straight game and fourth time in five contests while Jose Iglesias (personal) remains on paternity leave. With Iglesias expected back by Wednesday, Peraza should soon shift back into the utility role he's occupied for the last few weeks.
Peraza avoided injury despite colliding with center fielder Nick Senzel in Wednesday's win over the Indians, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. He went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in the win.
Peraza ranged back on a pop fly and didn't hear Senzel calling him off on the play, after Senzel made a late call on the ball. Senzel elbowed Peraza in the head on the play, and Senzel banged his ankle, but both remained in the game.
Peraza went 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in the Reds' win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Peraza increasingly has been getting playing time in left field when the Reds face a left-hander, as they did Tuesday. His overall line is still a disappointing .213/.275/.335, but he's shown some signs of life at the plate over the last 10 days.
Peraza will start at second base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Pirates.
Peraza will stick in the lineup for a third straight game, but it's worth noting that Joey Votto (hamstring) has been sidelined for all of those contests. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, manager David Bell expects Votto to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Nationals, so it's likely that Derek Dietrich will shift over to second base for that contest and bump Peraza to a bench role. Peraza is slashing just .190/.301/.349 in May and has done little to justify receiving more work at the expense of Dietrich, who has upped his home-run total to a team-best 17 after slugging four long balls over the past two contests.
Peraza went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Pirates.
Peraza took Rookie Davis deep in the eighth inning to record his fifth home run of the season. However, he continues to lose playing time to both Jose Iglesias and Derek Dietrich, limiting his at-bats and fantasy utility. If Joey Votto's hamstring tightness lingers longer than expected, Peraza would benefit, with Dietrich sliding over to cover first base.
Peraza is not in the lineup for the first game of the Reds' doubleheader Monday against the Pirates.
Peraza continues to lose playing time to Derek Dietrich and Jose Iglesias as he earned just one start in the team's weekend series against the Cubs. His performance hasn't dictated his regular presence in the lineup, as he's hitting just .201/.258/.313 with four steals and four home runs across 155 plate appearances.
Peralta is in the starting lineup Sunday at second base against the Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu, batting seventh.
This is the third start of the week for Peraza, all against left-handers. Peraza has been considerably better (albeit not good) against lefties, posting a .650 OPS against them as opposed to a .522 OPS against righties.
Peraza remains on the bench Saturday against San Francisco.
Derek Dietrich starts at second base for the second game in a row. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Dietrich continue as the starter going forward, as his .238/.354/.650 slash line dwarfs Peraza's .198/.250./276.
Peraza will sit Friday against the Giants.
Peraza sits for the second time in four games. His .267/.353/.356 line over his last 13 games qualifies as a hot streak after he hit a miserable .157/.181/.229 over his first 23. Derek Dietrich gets the nod at second base Friday.
Peraza isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Athletics.
Peraza will get the day off after taking the collar Monday (0-for-3). Kyle Farmer draws the start at the keystone and will hit ninth.
Peraza will start in left field and bat eighth Monday against the Giants.
Peraza manned left field for two innings in a game earlier this season, but Monday's starting assignment will mark his first in the outfield since 2016. It's unlikely that Peraza ends up seeing regular action outside of the middle infield, as the Reds would most likely recall Scott Schebler or Phillip Ervin from Triple-A Louisville to fill a full-time role in the outfield if something should happen to the regular starting trio of Yasiel Puig, Jesse Winker and Nick Senzel. Peraza is merely spelling a resting Winker in the series finale.
Peraza is out of the lineup for Friday's series opener versus the Giants.
Peraza will have the day off Friday after starting the last seven games and going 8-for-25 with one double, one home run, four RBI and two stolen bases. Derek Dietrich grabs the start at second base in his stead, batting fifth.
Peraza will start at second base and bat fifth Thursday against the Mets.
After a two-game run as the Reds' leadoff man to begin the series with New York, Peraza dropped all the way to the No. 9 spot Wednesday. He'll move into the heart of the order Thursday, but the 24-year-old's lineup spot appears far from settled at this point. It's likely the impending arrival of top prospect Nick Senzel will only hurt Peraza's chances of re-emerging as the Reds' table setter.
Peraza will start at second base and bat leadoff Tuesday against the Mets.
Peraza led off against Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler in the series opener Monday and went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and stolen base. He'll now handle table-setting duties versus southpaw Jason Vargas, which may signal that manager David Bell tentatively views Peraza as a full-time answer above the order. Of course, Peraza will probably need to keep hitting to stick in the top spot permanently, but he's at least turned a corner from his miserable start to the season with a .300 average dating back to April 20.
Peraza will start at second base and serve as the Reds' leadoff man Monday against the Mets.
Joey Votto had managed a .423 on-base percentage while leading off in the Reds' previous six games, but he'll slide down a spot in the order as manager David Bell experiments with Peraza in the table-setting role. Peraza has begun to turn things around a bit lately with at least one hit in each of his past six starts, but his .188/.207/.288 slash line for the season probably won't afford him much security in the leadoff role.
Peraza is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves.
Peraza will ride the pine for the second straight day while manager David Bell rolls with Derek Dietrich at the keystone. Bell hasn't indicated that Peraza's time as the everyday second baseman is over, but the back-to-back benchings suggest the 24-year-old's place atop the depth chart may be tenuous. Among the 209 players who have received at least 70 plate appearances this season, Peraza's .398 OPS ranks 205th, with a career-worst 23.9 strikeout percentage contributed heavily to his demise.
