Diamondbacks | David Peralta nearing return

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:58:43 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) expects to start playing in extended spring training games Wednesday, June 1. He's expected to play in a few games and then come off the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should return to an everyday role in right field with the Snakes when he's ready, so he should remain stashed in all fantasy leagues. He was hitting .260 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 123 at-bats before his injury. In the meantime, Brandon Drury has excelled with consistent playing time and is worth owning in the short term in the majority of seasonal leagues. Power prospect Peter O'Brien was just called up and could see time in the outfield until Peralta is back. He's a waiver wire target in deeper leagues for home runs.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta progressing slowly

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:28:09 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) could begin swinging a bat in a day or two, and the training staff is encouraged by his progress, manager Chip Hale said Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta isn't eligible to return until Tuesday, May 31, so plan to be without him until then. Arizona has mixed and matched lineups in his absence, but Michael Bourn could be a fleeting flier in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Continue to stash Peralta in all fantasy formats and check back for updates on his recovery.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta lands on DL

Sun, 15 May 2016 21:25:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right wrist inflammation Sunday, May 15. OF Michael Bourn's contract was purchased from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Peralta stashed everywhere. Brandon Drury, who has done nothing but hit for the D-backs (.320, six home runs, 13 RBI), played right field in all three games over the weekend and remains the biggest beneficiary with Peralta hurt. At this point, Drury should be rostered everywhere. Bourn figures to serve in a reserve outfield role along with Rickie Weeks. Bourn's main appeal is his speed, but the 33-year-old doesn't have much left in the tank after stealing 15 bags last year. Consider him a cheap flier in NL-only affairs.

It's progressively getting better."

Fantasy Tip: So Peralta is out again Friday night against the Giants, but it looks like he'll avoid a DL stint unless a setback occurs. Peralta has remained productive as a midrange outfielder for his fantasy owners. Keep him stashed. Brandon Drury replaces Peralta in right field again Friday. The third baseman has been one of the most productive hitters for the D-backs. Keep riding him in daily formats, especially while he hits near the top of the batting order.

Diamondbacks | David Peralta to see specialist

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:12:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF David Peralta (wrist) will visit with a doctor regarding his injured wrist Thursday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: That means Peralta will continue to be absent from the lineup at least through Thursday and possibly longer. The DL is a real possibility. If you own him, prepare for the worst. Rickie Weeks could fill in in the outfield in a pinch, but the most likely replacement is Brandon Drury, whose hot start has earned him regular playing time of late. Drury should be added in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues if he's still floating out there. He has a .298 average to go along with six home runs and 13 RBI.
