RotoWire News: Peraza is off to a hot start this spring, going 7-for-12 with three stolen bases in his first four games. (3/3/2017)

Profile: As the team stands right now, Peraza isn’t assured of a starting gig despite quite possibly being the second-best hitter on the team behind Joey Votto. A trade of second baseman Brandon Phillips might be the quickest and easiest way to playing time for the young athlete but he could also slide into the outfield with three decent-sized question marks currently projected to start (Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton and Scott Schebler). Just 22, Peraza has lots of time to establish himself but he won’t provide value to fantasy owners unless he finds consistent playing time, and it may end up being at a variety of positions - which would actually increase his value. As a rookie, he hit for a strong average — and, impressively, he got stronger as the year went on — but his offensive value is tied almost solely to that tool given that he doesn’t walk (less than 3% of the time) and doesn’t hit for much pop. His other offensive tool is his speed, and he nabbed 21 bases in 72 games during his debut. Added patience (and a higher walk rate) would take some of the pressure off of his bat and provide him with more added opportunities to utilize his speed.

The Quick Opinion: Peraza doesn’t have a guaranteed starting gig on the Reds as the 2017 season approaches but he’s arguably one of the top hitters on the club as he enters his sophomore campaign. As long as he gets 400-500 at-bats, he should have a lot of value due to his versatility, ability to hit for average and base-running prowess.
