Peralta is batting fifth and manning third base Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

He's batting only .200/.265/.200 in 49 plate appearances on the year, following a return from a complicated case of upper respiratory illness. Peralta will probably start for however long Jedd Gyorko inhabits the paternity list before resuming his role as a part-timer when the squad is at full strength.
