Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta progressing

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:34:51 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will report to Class AA Springfield Friday, May 27, after going 3-for-13 in a five-game stint with Class A Peoria, and manager Mike Matheny said Peralta is on the "immediate radar" to help.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta has above average power for a player with shortstop eligibility, and with third base eligibility likely in his near future, he should be stashed in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta playing third with Peoria

Wed, 25 May 2016 16:17:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is playing third base for Class A Peoria Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta has plenty of experience at the position with 203 starts at the hot corner, and he projects to see some time there with the Cards to help find at-bats for him while keeping Aledmys Diaz in the lineup, too. Peralta should be back before long, and the prospect of eligibility at multiple positions and his power in a strong lineup make Peralta a must-own bat in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta not ready

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:04:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) is not ready to come off the disabled list and needs more rehab games in the minors, according to manager Mike Matheny.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should be ready to return sometime in June, and he's likely to be an everyday player despite the emergence of shortstop Aledmys Diaz. Peralta could be moved around the diamond in order to keep his bat in the lineup, and he could gain fantasy value as a result. Peralta should remain stashed in all leagues.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta continues rehab

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:45:22 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will play one more rehab game with Class A Peoria and then move to Class AA Springfield Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should be able to return to the Red Birds sometime in June. Even with Aledmys Diaz tearing it up, Peralta should return as an everyday player in St. Louis, and he could see time at other positions, which may boost his fantasy value. Continue stashing Peralta everywhere. Kolten Wong could be the biggest loser in playing time once Peralta is back.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta hitless in rehab game

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:05:41 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta went 0-for-2 in a rehab assignment with Class A Peoria Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Aledmys Diaz isn't going anywhere, but St. Louis will likely find some ways to insert Peralta's bat in the lineup when he returns. Meanwhile, he will still have shortstop eligibility, so he is worth stashing in most mixed formats.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta set for rehab assignment

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:40:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will begin his rehab assignment with Class A Peoria Friday, May 20. General manager John Mozeliak said the organization will not rush Peralta back.

Fantasy Tip: Rehab assignments can last a maximum of 20 days, so expect Peralta back with the Cards by mid-June. Some might view Aledmys Diaz's emergence as a negative for Peralta, but it should actually enable Peralta to gain additional position eligibility. Stay tuned for updates and continue to stash Peralta in all fantasy formats.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta takes batting practice

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:34:05 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 22 Jhonny Peralta (thumb) took on-field batting practice with teammates Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta appears ready to begin a rehab assignment sooner than later following his March thumb surgery. The original timeline projected an early June return, and Peralta is worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues because of his pop from the shortstop position. With the emergence of Aledmys Diaz, Peralta could also see time around the infield and gain additional positional eligibility, which can't be spun negatively.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta rehab update

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:54:46 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak believes SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) will be cleared to resume all baseball activity soon. If all goes well, he could begin a rehab assignment this week.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should remain stashed in all fantasy formats, even though Aledmys Diaz has done nothing to warrant losing playing time. The two could see action all around the infield once Peralta returns in order to keep both of their bats in the lineup. Expect him to return to action by early June.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta cleared to swing

Tue, 10 May 2016 23:26:43 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) has been cleared to begin swinging a bat.

Fantasy Tip: Jhonny P still has hurdles to clear over the next couple of weeks before he can begin a rehab assignment. It's clear that Aledmys Diaz will continue to play, and the duo will have to shift around the infield to make it work. Peralta will have to perform in order to play every day. Diaz is worth consideration to sell high on, but it's not imperative you do so. Keep Peralta stashed if you own him.

Cardinals | Jhonny Peralta could be moved around

Thu, 05 May 2016 15:08:40 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta (thumb) could play some first or third base in addition to shortstop when he returns from the disabled list in order to keep SS Aledmys Diaz's bat in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. It's unknown if he'll play any other position enough to gain eligibility at a position other than shortstop, but it's probably unlikely. The biggest takeaway is that Diaz's scorching start out of nowhere has earned him a spot on the roster for the rest of the year, most likely.
