Peralta, who went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Giants, is now 4-for-5 since returning from the disabled list due to an illness.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder looks like a new man at the plate since his return, singling in a pair of pinch-hit appearances in the first two games of the series against the Giants before reaching safely in three of four plate appearances in Sunday's start. Peralta had slashed .120/.185/.120 over his first 27 plate appearances of the season, a stretch that also included a .149 wOBA. However, it's becoming readily apparent that the virus and subsequent reaction to medication that Peralta endured affected his play significantly, and he could certainly revert back to his typical level of production now that he's returned to full health.
