Peralta is out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta had recorded just four hits in 29 at-bats over his last nine games, so it looks as though manager Mike Matheny will give the infielder an extended break. With Peralta sitting for the second time in as many days, Matt Carpenter will move over to third base to take his spot in the lineup.

Peralta is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports.

EDGE Analysis

The day off will end Peralta's streak of 14 straight starts at third base, but it's likely just for maintenance purposes with the Cardinals set to play their third consecutive day game on Labor Day. Greg Garcia will spell Peralta at the hot corner Sunday.

Peralta went 3-for-4 in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop is finally starting to flourish at the plate in his first stretch of extended playing time during what has been an injury-marred campaign. Peralta has hits in three straight and multi-hit efforts in four games to date in August. His .296/.333/.426 line in the current month appears to be indicative of a potential offensive awakening and has helped bring his season average 29 points since Aug. 1.

Peralta is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals will go with a lefty-heavy lineup Wednesday against righty Doug Fister. Greg Garcia will get the start at shortstop and hit ninth as Peralta gets his third day off in the last 15 games. Peralta's counting stats are way down because he missed a little under three months due to injuries. His .411 slugging percentage is right in line with what he did last year, and his .263 BABIP (.311 career mark) suggests he hasn't been as bad as his .234 average suggests. Additionally, his 31.5 percent hard-hit rate is actually better than his 30.9 percent career rate, so he could finish the year on a high note if his batted ball luck normalizes.

Peralta is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The Cardinals are going with a lefty-heavy lineup against righty Anthony DeSclafani on Wednesday, meaning Greg Garcia gets the start at shortstop. Peralta has been raking of late, with eight hits across a five-game hitting streak. With Aledmys Diaz (thumb) out indefinitely, Peralta should see pretty regular playing time over the rest of the season.
