David Peralta to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery

Leave a comment

Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, per MLB.com.

Peralta, 32, went on the injured list on July 4 with inflammation of the AC joint in his right shoulder and returned on July 24. He hit a lackluster .227/.313/.409 across 99 plate appearances. He was batting .289/.352/.476 when he went on the injured list initially.

The light-hitting Josh Rojas and Tim Locastro have been handling left field when Peralta has needed time off, so that figures to be the case through the end of the season.

Peralta will enter his third and final year of arbitration eligibility after the season. He figured to be a trade chip for the D-Backs during the offseason but that won’t be the case now.

Giancarlo Stanton is out of the lineup for today’s Astros-Yankees game for the second consecutive day due to a quad strain. The Yankees have yet to take him off the roster completely because, if they did so, he’d be ineligible to play in the World Series should the Yankees advance, so for the time being New York will play shorthanded once again.
