Mariners | Joel Peralta the eighth-inning man

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:35:14 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joel Peralta "will probably be the guy we'll lean on" to replace RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) as the eighth-inning setup man, according to manager Scott Servais.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is a relief veteran that has 15 career saves and has a 2.25 ERA with eight strikeouts in eight innings for the M's this year. Steve Cishek has performed nicely in the closer role for Seattle this year and isn't in any danger of losing the job anytime soon. Peralta is strictly a candidate in the deepest of leagues if you're speculating for saves.

Mariners | Joaquin Benoit says he's ready

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 14:49:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) says he's ready to pitch again after dealing with tightness in his upper back and shoulder for the last week. The Mariners turned to RP Joel Peralta twice in the eighth inning to protect leads when Benoit was unavailable, and Peralta gave up leadoff home runs both times.

Fantasy Tip: Despite being 38 years old, Benoit has closing experience and will return to eighth-inning setup duties for Steve Cishek. Cishek has had problems recently in the ninth inning for the Miami Marlins, and he may be on a short leash, meaning Benoit deserves ownership in deeper leagues for save speculators.

Dodgers | Three arms coming to help out

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:45:06 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers will promote Ps Mike Bolsinger, Joel Peralta and Ian Thomas to the big club Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters expand. The team is expected to make additional moves later in the month.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger has started games in the past and could be used in a pinch if the team feels there is a need. FantasyScore players likely need not bother with any of them, although Bolsinger likely is the best bet to make a splash again.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta placed on disabled list

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:16:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Dodgers have placed RP Joel Peralta (neck) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right neck strain.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta had served as the Dodgers' closer in the absence of Kenley Jansen (foot), who is not expected to return until the middle of next month. Yimi Garcia now appears to be the team's go-to guy in the ninth inning, although Juan Nicasio and Chris Hatcher could also be in the mix for save opportunities.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta likely for DL

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 15:26:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (back, arm) is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 26. He said he was dealing with a dead-arm phase that led to back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Yimi Garcia and Juan Nicasio could figure into save situations until Peralta and/or Kenley Jansen return. Garcia has been filthy with 16 K's in 9 2/3 innings and a 0.93 ERA. He's the best bet.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta being treated for stiff neck

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:06:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (neck) was treated for a stiff neck Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown if it will impact his availability, and if it does, for how long. Consider Chris Hatcher the stronger saves candidate in the short term, though. However, neither have anything more than fleeting value in deep leagues, as Kenley Jansen will take over closing duties when he returns in mid-May.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta injury update

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 17:00:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (shoulder) is expected to make his spring training debut Friday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: With closer Kenley Jansen (foot) sidelined due to injury, Peralta will likely be in the mix for save opportunities until he returns. Jansen could be sidelined until early May, but even a few April saves would make Peralta worthy of a late-round selection.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta to face hitters

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 14:16:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (shoulder) is scheduled to face hitters Tuesday, March 10, and he could make his first spring outing by Sunday, March 15.

Fantasy Tip: Because he's a relief pitcher, Peralta probably won't need many spring outings before being ready for the regular season. With Kenley Jansen (foot) out for at least the first month of the season, Peralta is the favorite to see the majority of the team's ninth-inning save chances. Target him in the late rounds of standard 12-team mixed league drafts if you're looking for more saves to open 2014.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta throws bullpen

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:09:45 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (shoulder) felt fine after a bullpen session Monday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: As a reliever, Peralta won't need many spring outings or innings to be ready for opening day. He's the likely candidate to see most of the save opportunities in the ninth inning with Kenley Jansen (foot) out at least the first month. Target Peralta as a cheap saves source at the tail end of deep mixed leagues or as a handcuff to Jansen.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta should be ready

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 11:22:46 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (shoulder) is behind schedule in camp because of right shoulder stiffness, but manager Don Mattingly is confident that Peralta will be ready for opening day. Peralta expects to throw his first bullpen session next week. The good news is that Peralta doesn't need many exhibition outings to be game-ready.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta is likely the leading candidate to fill in in the ninth inning with Kenley Jansen (foot) sidelined to start the season. The other candidates would be J.P. Howell and Brandon League. If you're speculating at the tail end of fantasy drafts, Peralta should be your pick, but keep an eye on how he recovers from his shoulder stiffness.
