David Peralta

More from Call to the Pen

David Peralta has been an Arizona Diamondback fan favorite for many years.  He has done just about everything the organization has asked of him.  The unfortunate thing is he is in the third year of arbitration and it’s time for the team to cash in on their investment.

Peralta slashed .275/.343/.461 last season with 12 home runs and 57 RBI’s.  He has been a great outfielder, but having Marte, who can play both outfield and infield positions, there is not a way to justify having him, if they can turn around and get some good value out of him.

I am one of those who loves Peralta and the energy he brings to the dugout.  For his career, Peralta is slashing .290/.346/.461 with 85 career home runs and 330 RBI’s.  He did win the silver slugger award last season, which has been his best season statistically.

He, unfortunately, has yet to live up to his potential at the plate, so despite anything he brings energy-wise to the dugout, the team can’t justify the investment.
