Jhonny Peralta placed on 10-day DL with respiratory illness

The Cardinals have placed Jhonny Peralta on the 10-day DL with a respiratory illness. LHP Tyler Lyons has taken Peralta's place on the roster.

Fantasy Impact

Peralta is off to an awful start this season, with just a .120/.185/.120 slash line. Jedd Gyorko will likely get the bulk of the playing time at third base, with Kolten Wong playing second most days.

Jhonny Peralta starts at third base and goes 1-for-4 in Opening Day win

Jhonny Peralta started at third base on Opening Day Sunday evening against the Cubs and went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Peralta was replaced at third base by Matt Carpenter for defensive purposes late in the game Sunday evening. This should be a consistent theme as Peralta is in the lineup more for his bat than his glove. He is expected to split starting duties with Jedd Gyorko, although Gyorko was already in the lineup at second base. Peralta should not be in your lineup in season-long leagues and is a desperate play in DFS.

Peralta to open season as starting 3B for Cardinals

Cardinals' manager Mike Matheny has indicated that infielder Jhonny Peralta will begin 2017 as the starting 3B. Going into Spring Training, third base was open for competition with Jedd Gyorko receiving consideration for the role as well.

Fantasy Impact

Peralta seems to have finally recovered from the thumb injury that plagued him for much of the 2016 season. While he has not torn the cover off the ball in Grapefruit League play, he has posted an encouraging 7 extra base hits across 38 AB entering Friday. If Peralta can recover some of his lost power, he could be a cheap source of production at 3B/SS for fantasy managers looking for a waiver wire grab at the beginning of the season. Alternatively, if Peralta struggles to produce, look for utility infielders Greg Garcia and Jedd Gyorko to strip away playing time.

Jhonny Peralta to return as primary SS

Jhonny Peralta will slide into the Cardinals' regular SS role when he returns from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Peralta will resume the role previously filled by Aledmys Diaz, who is now on the disabled list with an injury of his own. Peralta struggled since his return, and considering he wasn't over the thumb injury owners should take a cautious approach even though he'll slide back into a regular role.

Jhonny Peralta placed on the disabled list

Jhonny Peralta has been placed on the disabled list with a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact

Very disappointing news for Peralta, who missed the first two months of the season with the injury. Peralta had struggled even after coming back, and is droppable in all but NL-only leagues.
