He always been a good hitter but was a defensive liability coming up. He's probably more of a true 3rd baseman. Now that Alex Cora isnt around to steal PT, he should have a daily job. Probably wont steal many bases.

Reasonable prediction is about .280-.290 20+HR

The pre-season projections I saw for Peralta were right around a .270-.280 batting average with 11 homers, 50-ish runs and 50-ish RBI. Obviously, he's on pace to do a lot better than that this season.

I've been keeping an eye on him for a while, expecting him to slump, but so far, he's been solid.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

.280-.290 with 20+ homers was always kind of the upper-end of what he could do in his prime, not what he could be expected to do this year. That he's played as well as he has is a surprise, but he's been solid for a while now. He could keep it up.

Wait for the pitcher adjustment down-swing.

Check out his AAA numbers...he killed the ball and hit for power.

He's this months F lopez minus the occasional SB. Lopez has 14 Hr's, Peralta has 11...and this is while he was sharing time w/ Cora and batting 9th, going thru an opening season slump.

I'm hoping for 25 HR's total.

Yeah he was a minor league player of the year at some level or another. I actually had him on my SS depth chart before drafting this year after reading something Peter Gammons wrote about how the kid could play. I picked him up for a while in the middle of the season and had it not been for the juggernaut play of my team I would've kept him around. I saw him play on Friday night and yesterday at the stadium. The kid has great at bats, good discipline, a nice swing, he's huge for a SS, and from what I can tell kid can rake. Given his position and that lineup, he's definitely a guy who you want for a deep keeper league. Only thing that bugs me is that he bats 9th in Cleveland's lineup. I bet that changes next year.

Yea he's always been a great hitter in the minors. he was called up last year for a little while, and he struggled. I believe he won the AAA mvp a year ago if i'm not mistaken.... well anyway, i could deffinetly see him a 20-25 homer guy and a .280-.290 average hitter in his future.

Just out of curiousity, is there any player that you like? It seems like you dont like anyone.

Anyway, I like the kid. If they were gonna adjust to him, they would have done it at this point. If anything, it looks like the opposite has happened as he is peaking later in the season.
