Player Outlook
Oswald Peraza entered 2023 with a shot at a starting spot in the Yankees infield, but it was fellow rookie Anthony Volpe who won the shortstop job with a strong spring and managed to hang onto the role over the length of the campaign. That resulted in Peraza spending much of the season in Triple-A, where he performed well enough with a .268/.357/.479 slash line, 14 homers, 36 RBI and 16 stolen bases over 300 plate appearances. When he did get an opportunity with the big club, however, Peraza largely struggled, finishing with a poor .539 OPS and 26.2 percent strikeout rate over 52 games. Aside from defense and his 84th percentile sprint speed, all of the youngster's advanced metrics were well below league average, and he often appeared overmatched by big-league pitching. Peraza looked far better during his initial MLB cup of coffee in 2022, and he'll almost certainly get more opportunities in the majors next year. There's a chance he could compete for the Yankees' vacant third-base spot, but a more likely scenario has the team utilizing his positional flexibility and plugging him into a utility role.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Returned to Triple-A

    Peraza was optioned back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Sunday's 3-1 loss to Atlanta. Peraza was called up to replace Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) on the major-league roster after Stanton was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, but Peraza failed to appear in the team's contest against Atlanta before being returned to Triple-A. With Stanton expected to miss approximately four weeks with a left hamstring strain, it's possible that Peraza makes multiple trips between the big leagues and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre over that time frame.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Gets call-up from Triple-A

    The Yankees recalled Peraza from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. Peraza will join the big club as a replacement on the 26-man active roster for designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton, who was placed on the 10-day injured list due to a left hamstring strain. After opening the season on the IL with a shoulder injury sustained during spring training, Peraza joined the Yankees' Triple-A club on May 19 and had played there ever since, slashing .178/.313/.215 with one home run and four stolen bases in 128 plate appearances. Given that his production at Triple-A didn't necessarily warrant a call-up, Peraza is unlikely to serve as little more than a depth option for the Yankees while he's in the majors.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Set to join Yankees

    The Yankees are expected to recall Peraza from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of reports. Peraza is expected to join the Yankees' roster for the first time this season after suffering an injury during spring training and sticking at Triple-A after reinstatement from the injured list. While a corresponding move has yet to be announced, Peraza's call-up could indicate Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) needs an IL stint after exiting Saturday's game. Regardless, Peraza should provide additional infield depth for the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Reinstated, optioned to Triple-A

    Peraza (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. Peraza has been on the injured list since suffering a shoulder injury in February, but he began a rehab assignment May 7. Most recently, he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his only contest with Triple-A, where he will now remain for the time being. The organization will likely allow the 23-year-old to find his footing with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before ultimately elevating him to the major-league roster down the road.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Headed to Triple-A

    Peraza (shoulder) was transferred to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to continue his rehab assignment Saturday. Peraza went 2-for-16 with two solo home runs, four runs scored and a stolen base over 16 at-bats in five games with Double-A Somerset, and he'll now advance to the final step of his recovery from the shoulder injury he suffered in February. The 23-year-old could return to the Yankees at some point during their four-game series with the Mariners beginning Monday.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Rehab moving to Double-A

    The Yankees transferred Peraza (shoulder) from Single-A Tampa to Double-A Somerset on Friday. Peraza went 2-for-5 with a homer, two walks and three runs in two games at Single-A and will now move his rehab assignment to the Double-A level. The 23-year-old suffered a shoulder injury in late February and was shut down in early March, so he likely still needs a significant number of at-bats in the minors before being cleared to come off the injured list.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Beginning rehab assignment

    Peraza (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Tampa on Tuesday. Peraza is finally ready to test things out in a game setting after working his way back from a right shoulder strain which he initially suffered back in late February. Given how much time he's missed, he will presumably require more than a handful of rehab games. Peraza also isn't a given to immediately be added to the big-league roster, although the status of DJ LeMahieu (foot) will be a factor.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Weeks away from rehab assignment

    Peraza (shoulder) has been hitting at the Yankees' complex in Tampa while continuing to progress through his throwing program, but manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that the infielder remains weeks away from playing in minor-league games, per Peraza's shoulder issue first cropped up Feb. 25 and was followed by renewed soreness after he attempted to return to Grapefruit League play March 5. He has been throwing regularly since the first week of April, so the team appears to be giving the 23-year-old ample time to fully recover. Peraza is one of three Yankees third basemen currently on the injured list, as DJ LeMahieu (foot) was pulled early from a minor-league rehab start Tuesday while Jon Berti (groin) has yet to begin a rehab assignment.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Will begin throwing Wednesday

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said on the Talkin' Yanks podcast Tuesday that Peraza (shoulder) will begin throwing Wednesday. Peraza is working his way back from a subscapularis strain in his right shoulder, but Boone expressed optimism Tuesday that it wouldn't take the infielder long to get ramped back up. With Oswaldo Cabrera off to a hot start, Jon Berti now around and DJ LeMahieu (foot) likely to beat Peraza back from the injured list, the latter could be sent to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre once he's healthy.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Moves to IL

    The Yankees placed Peraza (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Peraza is facing an expected recovery timeline of 6-to-8 weeks for a right shoulder strain, an injury that first cropped up in late February. Per, manager Aaron Boone said last week that Peraza was expected to resume hitting soon, but it's unclear if the 23-year-old has advanced to that portion of his recovery program. Regardless, Peraza will be sidelined until around late April or early May, which likely gives Jahmai Jones a multi-week run on the active roster as a utility player.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Heading for more testing

    Peraza will undergo additional testing on his right shoulder Friday, including dye-injected imaging, David Lennon of Newsday reports. Peraza returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing time with the shoulder issue, but renewed soreness resulted in a round of medical imaging. The 23-year-old is now going back for additional testing to help determine the specifics of the issue. There should be more clarity on Peraza's status once all the results come back.

    Peraza (shoulder) is starting at second base and batting fifth for the Yankees in Tuesday's game versus the Mets in his return to Grapefruit League play.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Not ready to return yet

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Friday that Peraza is still feeling some "pinching" in his right shoulder, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

Boone doesn't believe the injury to be serious, but throwing is still problematic, particularly when Peraza would have to play third base. He's considered day-to-day.

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Peraza (shoulder) could return to Grapefruit League action as soon as Friday, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Hits first homer of season

    Peraza went 4-for-9 with a double, a home run, two runs and two RBI across both games of a doubleheader against the Red Sox on Thursday. Peraza notched two of New York's six hits in the matinee, though neither helped the team avoid a shutout. The infielder made more noise in the nightcap, coming home after a second-inning double and adding a two-run homer in the ninth that gave the Yankees some much-needed cushion. Peraza is in the midst of a modest seven-game hitting streak, during which he is slashing .379/.379/.586 with four extra-base hits, three runs and four RBI.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Active for Game 2

    Peraza (knee) will start at shortstop and bat seventh during Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. Peraza has been dealing with swelling in his left knee, but he seems to be feeling well enough to return to the lineup after sitting the first game of Tuesday's action. The 23-year-old has had a quiet season in the majors overall, but he's gone 10-for-31 with four RBI since the start of September.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Could play during doubleheader

    Peraza (knee) could be available to play at some point during Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Red Sox, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports. Peraza is not starting the first game of the double dip, which is the second straight contest he's been absent from the lineup. The swelling in his left knee has gone down, though, and while it doesn't sound like he'll start the nightcap, he should be available off the bench. Isiah Kiner-Falefa is handling third base in the first game.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: On bench again Monday

    Peraza is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox. Peraza has played regularly since rejoining the Yankees in late August, but he will be held out for a second day in a row with manager Aaron Boone turning to his left-handed hitters against Boston righty Kutter Crawford.

  • Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Takes seat Sunday

    Peraza is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will start at third base and bat sixth. Peraza has enjoyed a fairly productive week, but the 23-year-old carries a brutal .188/.278/.232 overall slash line in 126 major-league plate appearances this season.
