BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 45% of Yahoo Leagues

ANALYSIS: David Peralta continues to prove his worth as an OF3 in fantasy leagues with production across multiple categories. His slash line is up to .305/.349/.461 with four home runs, four steals, and 24 runs scored. His weak area of production is RBI, as he's only driven in 12 over 154 at-bats. He's already matched last year's power totals, but with a much lower strikeout rate (16.9%). Truth be told, Peralta has never hit more than 17 HR in a pro season and will be lucky to reach double-digit steals, so you're getting him for a high average and runs alone.

He will continue to sit against most lefties, thanks to a .222 average versus LHP. He is also yet to crack a homer and has scored only one run in his 29 plate appearances against a left-hander, so you will need to monitor his matchups on a semi-regular basis. It's worth owning him despite this split, because he's got the 20th highest average against right-handed pitching in the majors. Pairing him up with a player like Kevin Pillar or Cameron Maybin could effectively give you the equivalent of a batting champ in your outfield, if you are vigilant about matchups on a daily basis.
