Profile: In his first season with the Cardinals back in 2014, Jhonny Peralta hit 21 homers. In 2015, he hit a respectable 17 homers despite a rough second half. Last year the bottom fell out for the soon-to-be 35-year-old shortstop turned third baseman. In spring training Peralta suffered a wrist injury that cost him the first several months of the season. Wrist injuries often linger, sapping strength, and that proved to be true for Peralta. He did manage eight homers in 313 plate appearances, so double-digit homers is still a possibility if he played a full season. Playing a full season is another issue. Aledmys Diaz ran with the shortstop job in Peralta's absence last season, moving Peralta to third base. If the Cardinals end up prioritizing Kolten Wong's playing time at second base, Peralta could be in a fight for time with Jedd Gyorko, who hit 30 homers last season. Peralta was an underrated player for a while with decent pop for a shortstop, but he's never been a high-average guy and he doesn't steal bases. He's probably looking at 10-15 homers, 50-60 runs and RBI and around a .260 average. Whether it is at shortstop (he only started/played seven games there) or third, there are other, higher upsides to take a chance on, and other more reliable players if you are looking for a high floor. (Craig Edwards)

The Quick Opinion: Jhonny Peralta's time as a mid-tier shortstop has come and gone. He might hit double digits in homers, but you can't expect much more than that.
