MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2016 Medium 50 45; Solid Middle Infield Contributor Yes
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Hands drift during load, direct path to ball, some upper-body lunge, front-foot hitter, minimal leverage; contact-oriented, middle- and opposite-field approach; aggressive hitter, won't work many walks
Power 20 Reactive, contact-driven swing lacks loft, strength; approach of a singles hitter, speed to accumulate extra bases
Baserunning/Speed 60 4.21 home-to-first; possesses speed to have impact on bases; plays up underway; track record of accumulating stolen bases
Glove 50 Capable glove at short; comfortable using backhand, solid-average range in both directions; developing reads, struggles with reactions, can get hesitant, may benefit from extra time afforded at second
Arm 55 Above-average arm strength that plays at short, accurate with solid velocity; would be plus on right side

Athletic middle infielder with above-average hit tool and plus run. Peraza was acquired from the Dodgers in the Todd Frazier trade. Bat is a tick above average, with a contact-heavy approach and an on-base profile tied tightly to his batting average. He's not a power threat, but he has speed to make an impact as a competent base-stealer. He has the tools to project for an average defensive profile, with both the glove and arm potentially ticking up with a full-time move to second base. Likely future as solid middle-infield contributor.
