Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta could return in June

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 10:49:04 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is scheduled to be re-evaluated in 10 days and could begin a rehab assignment around May 21, according to general manager John Mozeliak. He would likely need at least one week of rehab games and could rejoin the parent club in early June if all goes well.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is able to participate in defensive drills but has not yet been cleared to resume hitting. He should remain stashed in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues. Peralta's return is not expected to affect the status of 25-year-old rookie SS Aledmys Diaz, who is leading all National League hitters with a .420 average through his first 21 games this season.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta making progress

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:31:16 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) started light defensive drills this week in the next step to regain strength in his hand after he had surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left thumb March 10. Peralta will be re-evaluated by the team's medical staff in two weeks. He was initially believed to need 10 to 12 weeks to return. The return of Peralta won't necessarily mean SS Aledmys Diaz will be removed from the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Diaz, who is hitting a cool .466 (27-for-58 with three home runs and 11 RBI) could make things very interesting when Peralta returns. He could make playing time even more scarce for Jedd Gyorko or Kolten Wong at second base if St. Louis chooses to use him at the keystone. Stay tuned, but as long as Diaz continues to hit, he has value in all leagues at a shallow position.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta to start activities

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:12:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will meet with a doctor Monday, April 25, and is expected to begin baseball activities early next week. "We'll see what he says. After that, I think that I will start doing some work with the bat and the glove," Peralta said. "I also need to continue rehabbing to regain full motion in the finger, have to work on improving flexibility."

Fantasy Tip: Jedd Gyorko and Aledmys Diaz have really struggled defensively in place of Jhonny P, so there's little question that he'll return to the lion's share of work at shortstop. Thumb injuries are tricky, but he's worth stashing in mixed leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta has cast removed

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 15:39:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) had the cast on his left thumb replaced with a splint and has continued with cardio workouts and lower body exercises while his hand continues to heal. Peralta is optimistic about his return five weeks after sustaining the injury.

"I feel pretty good," Peralta said. "The doctor says there is nothing to worry about, that everything looks good. Now we have to work out and rehab."

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is likely still at least a month away from returning but remains a viable stash option in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Stay tuned for updates over the coming weeks, as Peralta will be an add candidate in the majority of seasonal leagues sooner than later. He has a .269/.335/.427 slash line over the past two years with an average of 62 runs, 19 home runs and 73 RBI, which are nice numbers for a shortstop.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta in cast for six weeks

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 09:07:17 -0800

Updating a previous report, St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will be in a cast four to six weeks before he starts a rehab process after having surgery on his thumb Thursday, March 10, and his rehab will take an additional month. The Cardinals are prepared to be without him until June at the earliest. St. Louis isn't chasing outside help at the position and are evaluating SS Aledmys Diaz, 2B Greg Garcia and 2B Jedd Gyorko.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta has always been an undervalued commodity at the 6, and he still might be worth stashing in really deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Gyorko is the front-runner at the position in the meantime if his defense holds up. He's worth a look in the latter part of deep mixed drafts. Diaz is probably an NL-only target if he wins the job this spring.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta has surgery

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 07:58:44 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) underwent surgery Thursday, March 10, to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to miss three or four months, and he could be affected by it all season because thumb injuries tend to wreck havoc on swings. Aledmys Diaz and Jedd Gyorko figure to at least platoon at shortstop for now. Stay tuned to this situation in camp.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta could miss 2-3 months

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 09:31:23 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (hand) could miss two to three months with a torn ligament in his left thumb. He will head back to St. Louis for a second opinion, at which time the Cardinals will have a better feel for his return timetable.

Fantasy Tip: The 34-year-old has been a consistent undervalued power source at a thin position, and this injury certainly hurts his outlook for fantasy players. The thumb injury could further sap his power. Still, he might be worth stashing as a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues for middle infield help. Jedd Gyorko sees a slight boost in his value as a late-round middle infielder with some pop, but Greg Garcia and Aledmys Diaz could also factor in at the 6 with Peralta sidelined.

Cardinals | Several STL starters resting in Game 2

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 13:13:12 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OF Matt Holliday, OF Jason Heyward, 3B Matt Carpenter, OF Stephen Piscotty, SS Jhonny Peralta and 2B Kolten Wong are all not starting in Game 2 of the doubleheader Sunday, Oct. 4, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Seeing this is the final game of the regular season, this is to be expected. Manager Mike Matheny is simply resting his starters. Of the reserves, OF Tommy Pham ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) might be worth a flier on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta resting

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:23:04 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, with SS Greg Garcia hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) hasn't done much in limited playing time. Sit him on FantasyScore against Shelby Miller.

Cardinals | St. Louis resting regulars

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 13:29:03 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals OFs Jason Heyward, Matt Holliday and Stephen Piscotty (head), 3B Matt Carpenter, 2B Kolten Wong and SS Jhonny Peralta are not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals boast strong depth, so their lineup isn't exactly a cast of Class AAA players. However, Braves SP Julio Teheran ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) owns a 3.06 ERA and held opposing hitters to a .596 OPS through his 16 starts at Turner Field this season. There are enough cushier matchups to target for FantasyScore players Friday.
