St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta has gone 2-for-4 in each of the past three games and has homered in two of them.
Fantasy Tip: His early season struggles seem to be coming to an end. A lot of it was due to poor luck as he has hit the ball hard in a lot of at-bats. If you can buy low, now is the time.

The St. Louis Cardinals will take their time in developing Cuban SS Aledmys Diaz by having him serve as depth in the minor leagues. He's on the 40-man roster and will be optioned this spring. A solid March could allow him to start the year at Class AA Springfield.
Fantasy Tip: Diaz had to sit out a full year as MLB-mandated punishment for misrepresenting his age, so he's behind the curve to get involved heavily in St. Louis' plans this year. Jhonny Peralta's presence and four-year deal obviously complicate the 23-year-old's timetable, as well. Diaz could develop significant power for a shortstop, and keeper leaguers shouldn't hesitate to spend a farm-roster spot on him.
