|Jhonny Peralta slugs 17th home run Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(12:08 am ET) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta went 1 for 4 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-4 win over the Reds Tuesday.
Peralta homered in the bottom of the sixth inning with his team down 4-1, scoring the first of four unanswered runs that ended with a walkoff hit batter. The shortstop has been on fire in August, going 23 for 67 at the plate while swatting three home runs. He owns a .266/.340/.458 line with 17 home runs and 56 RBI in 432 at-bats.

(8/14/14) The power outage that has plagued Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta since May has continued in August, but he has picked it up at the plate.
The 32-year-old Peralta is batting .350 since Aug. 2 with 14 runs scored in 11 games. He owns a stat line of .260/.336/.441. But he has just five home runs since May 20.

(7/25/14) A current .256 batting average owned by Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta might not seem too impressive, but it is when considering it's at its highest point in more than two months.
Peralta has been steadily improving all his numbers. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games, during which time his average has soared 17 points. He has three home runs since July 3. His overall production has been decent. Peralta owns a stat line of .256/.331/.453 with 14 home runs and 44 RBI in 344 at-bats.
|Jhonny Peralta helps lead comeback with homer |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) Cardinals infielder Jhonny Peralta put together a big performance Friday, as he helped lead the way in a 7-6 win over the Brewers.
Peralta went 3 for 4 in a comeback win, and his two-run home run in the sixth inning helped get the rally going. He finished the game with the one run scored and two driven in.
Peralta has three home runs in 10 games during the month of July, and is now hitting .248/.324/.453 with 14 home runs and 42 RBI in 322 at-bats.
|A 50-game suspension stemming from his connection to the Biogenesis investigation kept Jhonny Peralta off the field for almost the entirety of the season's final two months, but he made the most of the time he did play. Peralta's .303 batting average was his first over .300 in his career, and he was on a 40-doubles pace prior to his suspension. A 28 percent line drive rate helped Peralta to boost his batting average and power numbers, but it's unlikely he will repeat that mark in 2014. And while Peralta has not been blessed with hitter-friendly home venues over his career, the move from Comerica Park to Busch Stadium won't do much for his home run total. The Cardinals should provide Peralta with similar run producing opportunities to those he experienced as a Tiger. Even so, at his best, Peralta has been a marginal option in standard mixed leagues, and we may not see his best this season. He should be viewed as an option for deeper mixed and NL-only leagues.
