Peralta, who missed significant time in 2019 due to a shoulder injury, tested the shoulder Monday when diving for a ball in the outfield, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Peralta admitted to trepidation when attempting the dive but reports no discomfort in the shoulder. "That's a good test for me," he said. "Now I'm going to be more confident I can make those plays." Peralta swung a productive bat through April and May last season before the shoulder injury, which lingered through the summer. A healthy shoulder should not only increase his confidence in the field, but it could also improve his hitting. Peralta slashed just .227/.313/.409 with three home runs over the second half of 2019.
Peralta has agreed to a three-year, $22 million extension with the Diamondbacks, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
This was going to be his final year of arbitration before hitting the open market, so the Diamondbacks paid him what they would have owed him while also giving him some financial stability over the next few years. If the 32-year-old outfielder maintains his recent production (7.5 fWAR over the last three seasons), the extension will look like a bargain, but he showed signs of decline last year. He underwent surgery in August to clean up loose bodies in his right shoulder and is expected to be ready for spring training. The deal includes $1.25 million in incentives.
Peralta (shoulder) posted on his personal Twitter account that his surgery Friday was successful.
Peralta's shoulder issue popped up in May and he dealt with inflammation in the AC joint on and off for months, with his production suffering greatly as a result. It was ultimately determined that surgery would be necessary to clean up the loose bodies, but the procedure is not expected to delay Peralta's spring preparation. He'll have a starting job waiting for him when he's back.
Peralta will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Friday, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.
The surgery will clean up loose bodies in his right shoulder and will be performed by Dr. Kremcheck in Cincinnati, according to Jack Magruder of the Associated Press. At this point, it's not yet known whether Peralta will be ready for spring training following the procedure. Look for Josh Rojas and Adam Jones to see time in the outfield down the stretch in place of Peralta.
Peralta will require surgery on his right shoulder and is set to miss the rest of the 2019 season.
Peralta landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to shoulder inflammation, and it's since been determined that surgery is necessary for a full recovery.
