RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Injuries to the Rays bullpen put Peralta in a setup role last season. His ERA rose to 3.63 from 2.93 in 2011, but he pitched in a career-high 76 games, logging 37 holds. He will be 37 in 2013, but still throws an effective splitter that opponents only hit .162 against. He signed a two-year deal in the offseason and will likely return to the same setup role for the Rays. His value will be limited in fantasy, but being the setup man could mean that he would be next in line to close should that opportunity open during the season.

2012

Peralta became something of a 2011 version of Joaquin Benoit, assuming the role of the setup guy for Kyle Farnsworth. Peralta finished the season with a sparkling 2.93 ERA with 19 holds and six saves. Peralta looked comfortable in the closer's role down the stretch when Farnsworth was a little banged up, giving the Rays another option in the ninth inning, if needed. There's no reason to think Peralta can't replicate his 2011 season while resuming setup duties, giving him fantasy value for those in leagues that count holds.

2011

After ditching his slider in 2009 and sticking with his split-finger and changeup as breaking pitches, Peralta finally put together a major league season to match his Triple-A numbers. His rocky track record made the Nationals unwilling to go to arbitration with him, but he landed with the Rays and fits their mold as a low-risk/high-reward bullpen asset.

2009

Peralta struggled a bit in 2008, and bounced between the majors and Triple-A Omaha. He continued to have a decent strikeout rate in the majors; striking out 38 in 52.2 innings while walking just 14, but also allowing 15 home runs. He should fight for a middle-relief role during spring training.

2008

Peralta was a versatile middle reliever for the Royals in 2007, coming in middle and late innings and pitching in a variety of circumstances. He pitched a career-high 87.2 innings in that role, striking out (66) nearly three times as many he walked (19). He also solved his issues against left-handed batters, who had historically hit him well. He’ll throw in a similar role in 2007 but won’t be in the closing mix.

2007

Peralta is stingy about walks, but an alarming number of hits, many leaving the yard, is keeping him from real success for the Royals. Twice, Peralta found himself in Triple-A Omaha after rough stretches. But the Royals didn't leave him down long because he throws strikes. That's what will keep him in the running for major league roster space.

2006

A testament to how strong the Angels bullpen is, Peralta was let go after compiling a 3.89 ERA and striking out nearly a man per inning. He allowed an abnormally high amount of home runs, but that is correctable. Expect Peralta to join the Royals bullpen in 2006.
