Cardinals' Jhonny Peralta hoping to recreate 2014 season in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta wants to be able to do a lot of the things he succeeded doing in 2014.

Peralta hit .263 with 21 home runs and 75 RBI in 560 plate appearances. His manager, Mike Matheny, wants to see a similar guy in 2015.

"He's been very consistent with getting himself ready and what he needs to do and who he needs to be. He came in here last year with a very workmanlike approach and went about it to build up for opening day," Matheny said.

Bad BABIP burying batting average for Jhonny Peralta


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta can blame Dame Fortune or Lady Luck for much of his struggles this season, especially in regard to his .239 batting average.

Peralta owns a BABIP of just .252, which pales in comparison to the league average of .291 and his .374 mark of a year ago. Some of that indicates he's simply not hitting the ball as consistently hard, but his power numbers suggest otherwise. Peralta has nine home runs and 11 doubles among his 44 hits.

Despite a batting average that is 66 points under what he achieved with the Cardinals in 2013, his slugging percentage of .446 is nearly identical to the .457 mark he managed a year ago.
