Reds | Jose Peraza in center field Thursday

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 13:01:25 -0700

Cincinnati Reds 2B/OF Jose Peraza is starting in center field and is batting seventh against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Thursday, June 30. OF Billy Hamilton (head) remains out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza is an intriguing Cincy prospect that should be owned in NL-only leagues, mainly for his speed. He could become useful in deeper mixed leagues, too, if Hamilton is forced to the 7-day concussion DL. Peraza could split time in center with Tyler Holt, too, especially since Peraza's outfield defense has been shaky.
