On the IL for the third time this season because of AC joint inflammation, Peralta will undergo season-ending surgery. Because he struggled between IL stints, the outfielder snapped a two-year streak of batting .293 with a .352 OBP at .277 and .345, respectively. If healthy, it's easy to see him falling under the radar as a late-round steal next season.

Peralta was raging hot earlier in the season but as the underlying numbers accurately forecasted, that was a mere fluke. Now that he is on the IL, you can make a case for cutting him loose if you need the extra roster spot.

Peralta isn't hitting for quite as much power as he did in his 30-HR season in 2018, but his batted ball metrics are nearly identical. Peralta is striking out more often this season, however, so while he's hitting well over .300 right now, it may not last.
