WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Peralta is a small lefty who got a bonus just into six figures at age 16.  He throws in the low-90s, with a curve and change.

2018
DSL:  3-4-1, 5.63 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, 48.0 IP, 4.9 BB/9, 11.6 K/9

Peralta made four starts and 15 relief appearances.  Apart from a high K rate, his numbers weren’t good.  His trouble came mostly in the starts, though.  Opponents put up a .909 OPS against him in the four starts, but only .626 in the relief appearances.

2019
DSL:  2-2-1, 2.01 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 40.1 IP, 3.6 BB/9, 7.6 K/9

The Pirates sent Peralta back to the DSL, where he made six starts and eight relief appearances.  He did much better overall, although with a much lower K rate.  This time he was better as a starter.

2020
DNP

Like most players, Peralta missed the pandemic season.

Peralta will be in the Florida Complex League in 2021.  He’ll be eligible for the Rule 5 draft after the season.
