St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is hitting third Wednesday, June 10, against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Jhonny P to be the three-hole hitter for a little while with Matt Holliday (quadriceps) likely out an extended period. Peralta ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has a .385-2-5 line the last week and has become an upper echelon shortstop on FantasyScore. Matt Carpenter profiles better hitting third with Peralta at cleanup, but the team has struggled to find a reliable two-hole hitter outside of Carp.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is hitting .310 as the fifth-place hitter this season.
Fantasy Tip: With Matt Adams (quadriceps) likely done for the season, Peralta will figure into the cleanup and fifth hole often. He's off to a .310-8-30 start. While the batting average will probably come down a bit, his power production is encouraging and he'll be in plenty of spots to drive in runs. At $4,600 (9.2% of cap), he's producing elite numbers at a midrange price.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is batting cleanup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is having a nice season, and he could take up temporary residence in the cleanup spot with Matt Adams ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) out with a quadriceps injury. It would be a slight boost to his fantasy stock, and Peralta is already a mid-tier shortstop. Currently, he has 23 runs, seven home runs, 25 RBI with a .308/.370/.506 batting average. While an excellent FantasyScore option, Peralta is somewhat pricey for a middle infielder.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta was a late scratch from the lineup Thursday, May 14, for OF Matt Holliday's (elbow) return.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta was slated to DH, but he is being given the day off instead. Pete Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in at shortstop, but he has no FantasyScore appeal.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is hitting third Thursday, May 7.
Fantasy Tip: Jhonny P ($3,500, 7.0% of your cap) has hit .316 in 19 at-bats against Thursday's starter Jake Arrieta. Arrieta has absolutely given the Cards fits, but Peralta is a good play for the price on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is hitting .333 (22-for-66) against right-handed pitchers with six runs, two home runs and 11 RBI so far this season.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to take note of Peralta's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) success against righties, especially considering he is a right-handed batter. He is locked into the middle of the Cards' lineup and should continue to see plenty of RBI opportunities. He won't break the bank in daily contests, either.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 30.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been off to a good start at the plate this season, so he is likely just receiving a day off. Pete Kozma ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start at shortstop for the Cardinals but is not a great option on FantasyScore.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta has hit safely in all eight games this year and 11 straight dating back to last season.
Fantasy Tip: Peralta ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) went 2-for-4 Thursday to raise his season average to .364 on the day. Hitting in the middle of a potent Cardinals lineup, Peralta is an intriguing shortstop play at FantasyScore while he's hitting well.
