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.
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.
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.
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.
