There was no outlook written for Ofelky Peralta in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Tanks in first season at High-A
PBaltimore Orioles  A+
September 14, 2017
Peralta went 2-10 with a 5.42 ERA and 1.86 WHIP over 26 starts during his first season at High-A Frederick.
ANALYSIS
It certainly wasn't the campaign the 20-year-old had hoped for. Despite leading the Keys in starts, Peralta's ERA and WHIP ranked last among the team's rotation. The prospect's 95:86 K:BB was particularly disturbing, and Peralta's .269 BAA was by far the worst of his four-year professional career. A jump to Double-A in 2018 is almost certainly off the table following his disastrous 2017 performance.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
At 19 years old, Peralta more than held his own at Low-A Delmarva in his first shot at full-season ball. There, opposing batters hit just .230 against the projectable righty. The 6-foot-5 hurler throws hard, but his command remains erratic, and his secondary pitches are still works in progress. Nevertheless, the Orioles expect the Dominican product to put on some muscle and fill out, and the strikeout potential is certainly evident (22.4 percent strikeout rate). There's an argument to be made that Peralta has the most realistic upside of any starting pitching prospect in the Baltimore system right now, although that is not saying much. He is still rather raw, but will start the season at High-A Frederick where he will work on hitting his spots and honing his offspeed offerings.
