Profile: Peralta struggled with command like never before in 2016. The 39.7% of pitches he threw in the zone was good enough for 115th in the league out of 118 pitchers who tossed at least 120 innings. He doesn't induce many whiffs and, as has been the story throughout his career, gives up too many homers. The result belies his outstanding ground ball rate, the one truly elite skill he possesses. Peralta still throws 95 mph, but after nearly 650 innings of sub-average swinging-strike rates, it's a safe bet he'll never make good on the strikeouts that, at least on paper, he seemed destined to rack up. With his trouble locating, horrible supporting infield defense, and a home park that's 12% friendlier to homers than average, all the pieces are in place for a disastrous season. It's a combination of factors that exacerbates his weaknesses and negates his strengths. You should look elsewhere for innings. (Rylan Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Peralta once tantalized us with sleeper potential, but he never made good on it. It's unlikely he'll start now.
