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, though he'll continue earning periodic starts against left-handed pitchers.
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.
Peraza was recalled by the Mets on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peraza was sent down by New York earlier in the day, but he'll return to the major-league roster after Luis Guillorme (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Peraza has yet to appear in a game this season and should continue to serve as a bench option.
Peraza was optioned by the Mets on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Peraza may bounce on and off the fringe of the Mets' roster throughout the season, as his defensive versatility makes him a decent bench option but it's mostly offset by his 62 wRC+ over the last two seasons. He's already spent two separate stints on the roster this season but is yet to get into a game. Reliever Daniel Zamora was recalled in a corresponding move.
Peraza was recalled from the Mets' alternate training site prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.
The Mets will temporarily go with an extra man on the bench, as they sent reliever Stephen Tarpley down in a corresponding move. Peraza will likely be used primarily as a pinch runner in the short term.
Peraza was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Saturday.
Peraza gave the Mets an extra infield option with J.D. Davis sidelined with a bruised hand. He didn't get into any games and will now head back to the alternate site with Davis returning to the roster.
Peraza's contract was selected by the Mets on Saturday.
Peraza failed to make the Mets' Opening Day roster after he signed a minor-league contract with the team in November. However, he'll be added to the 40-man roster to serve as infield depth after J.D. Davis (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Peraza hit .130 with two RBI in 17 spring games this year.
Peraza was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.
Peraza signed a minor-league contract with the Mets in November but was unable to make the Opening Day roster after he hit .130 with two RBI in 17 spring games. The 26-year-old's major-league numbers have declined in recent years, but he could return to the big leagues at some point in 2021.
Peraza signed a minor-league deal with the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old spent the shortened 2020 campaign in Boston after inking a one-year, $2.85 million deal, and he posted a .225/.275/.342 slash line with one home run in 120 plate appearances. Peraza has been unable to secure his spot in the majors over the past few seasons, so he'll have to prove it on the minor-league deal with New York.
Peraza was outrighted by the Red Sox on Wednesday and elected free agency.
Peraza was a likely non-tender candidate heading into the offseason, but he'll become a free agent after refusing his outright assignment. The 26-year-old began the 2020 season on the major-league roster but was sent to the alternate training site in September to give Christian Arroyo more playing time at second base. Peraza hit .225 with one home run and eight RBI over 111 at-bats in 2020.
Peraza was optioned to the alternate training site following Wednesday's game.
More interesting in fantasy than reality, Peraza doesn't project to be a part of Boston's long-term plans, so the team appears to be clearing space to get Christian Arroyo everyday playing time at second base down the stretch. He hit .225/.275/.342 with one home run and one stolen base in 111 at-bats before being demoted. Peraza will likely be non-tendered this offseason.
Peraza went 1-for-2 with a walk, a home run, two RBI, and a stolen base against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Peraza had a busy day at the plate, with his first RBI coming on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Two frames later, he delivered a solo home run -- his first of the campaign. Peraza also chipped in his first stolen base of the year, though he has also been caught once. Overall, Peraza is hitting .231/.282/.352, but has managed 13 runs scored across 117 plate appearances.
Peraza isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Peraza sat out Friday's nightcap, and he'll take a breather again Saturday. Michael Chavis will shift to second base with Bobby Dalbec starting at first.
Peraza isn't starting Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
Peraza won't start in back-to-back contests Friday against Toronto. Michael Chavis will start at second base for the nightcap.
Peraza isn't in Thursday's lineup against the Blue Jays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Peraza has gone hitless with five strikeouts over his past 12 at-bats, and he'll take a seat for the fifth time in the past 10 games. Michael Chavis will shift to second base with Bobby Dalbec starting at first.
Peraza is not in the lineup Tuesday against Atlanta.
Peraza sits for the fourth time in Boston's last eight games. He's hitting just .232/.283/.323 on the season, so it's not a surprise to see him out of the lineup on a semi-regular basis. Jonathan Arauz will get the start at second base.
Peraza is not in Saturday's lineup against the Nationals, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Peraza will head to the bench for the third time in the last six games despite getting at least one hit in each of his last five starts. Michael Chavis will start at second base and hit ninth Saturday.
Peraza isn't in Wednesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
Peraza went 1-for-3 with one run Tuesday, but he'll take a seat for the second time in the past three games. Michael Chavis will start at second base Wednesday.
Peraza is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Peraza will retreat to the bench after drawing four consecutive starts at second base, during which he went 3-for-15 with a double, two runs and an RBI. Jonathan Arauz will spell him at the keystone in the series finale.
Peraza is not starting Tuesday against the Phillies, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
Peraza sits for the third time in Boston's last five games. With a .636 OPS on the season (a near match for his .631 mark from last year), it's hard to argue that he deserves a true everyday role. Michael Chavis will be the second baseman Tuesday.
