Players will often take big steps forward in their third season at the big-league level. Peralta did not do that, but he did take steps back toward the player he was in 2015 before injuries marred his 2016 season. He gets on base at a solid rate but isn't given the green light on the base paths due to the fact he has a below-average stolen base conversion rate. The other issue with him is despite his ability to hit to all fields and hit lefties just enough to stay on the field, his power upside is limited by his inability to consistently loft the baseball (27.7 career flyball percentage). Chase Field's new humidor only makes his power outlook more bleak. The league is focused on launch angle and Peralta has a 2.0 groundball-to-flyball ratio in his last two full seasons. His offensive profile is a dime a dozen unless he retools his swing to get more loft on his batted balls in 2018.

  2. David Peralta 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Following a breakout 2015 season, 2016 was pretty much a lost cause for Peralta. The 29-year-old outfielder made three trips to the DL and only appeared in 48 games as he dealt with wrist and back injuries. He ended up getting shut down for good in August and finished with a .728 OPS, a far cry from the .893 OPS he posted in 2015. The injuries and natural regression are the top reasons for his decline on a per-plate-appearance basis. Peralta also struggles mightily against lefties (65 career wRC+) and the Diamondbacks have not yet moved him to a strict platoon, so that will suppress his batting average slightly until he is given a platoon partner. Keep an eye on his offseason recovery from August wrist surgery. If everything goes smoothly, Peralta could be a solid rebound candidate heading into 2017. His cost on draft day will no doubt dip from a season ago, and if he can approach the pace of his 2015 numbers (17 home runs and 78 RBI in 462 at-bats), Peralta will end up being a useful fantasy asset.
  3. David Peralta 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Peralta had a breakout 2015 season. The Venezuelan outfielder hit .312 (eighth best in the National League), slugged 17 home runs and drove in 78. He also led the National League with 10 triples. Peralta received 169 more plate appearances than he did in 2014, as he established himself as Arizona’s regular left fielder. He was neutralized somewhat by left-handed pitching (.250 batting average, versus .325 against righties), so Arizona will probably look to give him the occasional day off in 2016 when a tough lefty is on the hill. Lacking a lengthy track record, there is some concern that the unheralded Peralta, who was playing independent baseball just four years ago, will regress in 2016. However, he would still be a very useful fantasy outfielder even if he only does 90 percent of what he did in 2015. There will be those who are pessimistic about Peralta’s breakout, so his price on draft day should be very reasonable.
  4. David Peralta 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Originally signed out as a pitcher out of Venezuela by the Cardinals in 2004, Peralta never made it above rookie ball in the St. Louis organization, showing a live arm but battling shoulder issues and ultimately getting released in 2009. Following a return to his home country, Peralta resurfaced in North America as an outfielder in independent ball in 2011. The Diamondbacks gave him a look in 2013, signing him to a minor league deal and assigning him to High-A Visalia where he impressed with a .346/.370/.534 line over 51 games. A strong showing at Double-A Mobile to begin 2014 paired with a slew of injuries in the Arizona outfield opened the door for Peralta's first taste of the big leagues, and he became a regular from June 1 on. He could reprise a similar role in 2015, perhaps playing on the larger side of a platoon after hitting .312/.342/.506 against right-handed pitching in his big league debut. There may still be projection left in Peralta's bat given his limited experience as a professional hitter, but he will need to show a more discerning eye at the plate to take the next step after walking in just 4.6% of his plate appearances with the big club last season.
