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.

Peralta has hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games, during which time he has 17 hits in 48 at-bats with five doubles, three home runs and seven RBI. Strangely, however, he has recorded an RBI in only two of those games. He has seven home runs and 15 RBI on the season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Johnny Peralta looking to turn reputation around


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Cardinals new shortstop Jhonny Peralta is eager to make a good impression and he took an important first step by showing up to camp three days earlier.

Peralta lost 50 games last season to a performance enhancing drug suspension while with the Tigers before returning to bat .333 in the postseason. The Cardinals were criticized by some for signing him as a four-year free agent contract for $53 million.

"I came here early to talk to everybody and let them know what kind of person I am," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It's hard to come back from that situation but I tried to forget about and I loved forward."

Peralta batted a career-high .303 last season with 11 home runs and 55 RBI before the suspension.
