BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 After an excellent 2011 campaign, Peralta regressed to his 2009-10 levels. The doubles that had turned into home runs couldn’t handle success and went back to life as doubles. He also shifted a large chunk of his fly balls into groundballs, many of which were turned into outs, resulting in a career-low 127 hits. Despite the downturn, he is easily worth his $6 million option, especially in a paper-thin free-agent market at the position. The Tigers wasted no time bringing him back. He has averaged 48 extra-base hits the last four years, with no more than 49 and no fewer than 47, but the distribution between the doubles and home runs seems to bounce around. The Tigers would gladly trade some doubles on Tuesday for some home runs today.
2012 Last year in these pages we questioned Dombrowski’s decision to re-up the left side of the Tigers infield with multi-year deals. As right as we were about Brandon Inge, that’s how wrong we were about Peralta, who last year ranked among the top shortstops in the American League. Peralta made good on his promise of improved flexibility and conditioning to play above-average defense, offsetting his limited range with sure hands and an accurate arm, and hitting for both power and average. That last part won’t continue so long as he gets under nearly two-thirds of his balls in play; odds are that more of those fly balls will settle into outfielders’ mitts going forward. Even so, now that he has rediscovered his shortstop glove, he has a much lower offensive bar to clear, meaning he can survive a likely drop in OBP and still remain an asset.
2011 The Tigers traded for Peralta at midseason to help shore up the left side of their infield, and the former Indians third baseman impressed his new employers enough to wrangle a new two-year deal at shortstop. What made Peralta special earlier in his career, other than his unique taste in consonant placement, was an ability to provide punch at shortstop, but there’s little in his recent history to suggest that he remains either an offensive force or a shortstop. Sure, he launched a few more bombs last year, but Peralta’s single-minded quest to renew his slugger’s license caused his ground-ball rate to fall an astonishing 16 percent, further eroding an already sub-par batting average and OBP. While his bat plays better at shortstop, his glove certainly doesn’t—there’s a reason the Tribe exiled him to the hot corner—making this a regretful decision on several levels.
2010 Since 2005, the hot corner has been an offensive black hole for the Indians. A logical change was to have the emerging Asdrubal Cabrera play short and move the increasingly immobile Peralta to third. Unfortunately, Peralta’s OPS dropped over 100 points after the move, and it wasn't just a bout of bad luck—his BABIP stayed about the same. For the first time since his rookie season in 2003, he hit more ground balls than flies. When he did hit a fly ball, they only went out of the park 5.6 percent of the time, as compared to his 9.7 percent average over the previous two seasons. These two factors led to his home-run rate to be cut in half, which makes up for most of his significant drop in OPS. Peralta has never been the most consistent player, but given the gross similarities of his 2007-2008 seasons, any bounce-back seems likely to be similar in form—good, but just barely that.
2009 After two seasons of frustration, the power that Peralta displayed in 2006 returned, as he set a franchise record for extra-base hits by a shortstop (surpassing Hall of Famer Lou Boudreau's 65 from 1940). Peralta was the best offensive shortstop in the weak post-"trinity" American League field, and is signed for the next three seasons at just $15 million total. The bad news is that he's growing increasingly immobile at the position. He'll need a move to third at some point, and it's possible that the acquisition of Luis Valbuena from the Mariners in the Franklin Gutierrez trade will give the Indians the depth to try it now.
2008 After a great 2005 and an awful 2006, Peralta arrived at a happy medium last year. This version of Peralta is likely the real deal, as it was almost an exact match for his career numbers. He attributed his rebound last year to laser eye surgery, but it's too bad there's no medical procedure that will help his range at shortstop. The Indians insist that he's staying put, but it seems like a forgone conclusion that he'll eventually have to move to second or third, an impression only made stronger by the emergence of Asdrubal Cabrera. Still, as a middle infielder with patience and good power, Peralta's a valuable part of this team.
2007 While various defensive metrics suggest that Peralta was pretty good defensively, the Indians sure didn`t think so, with manager Eric Wedge being a particularly vocal critic. At the plate, PECOTA expects something in between last year`s low and the high of 2005, and more in keeping with his minor league track record, meaning he`ll once again be one of the top hitters at his position. The Indians know they can`t really deal him just one disappointing year after signing him to an arbitration-erasing extension through 2010, and with the defensive upgrades to his right and left, and the equally reasonable expectation that his bat will bounce back, sticking with him isn`t just the path of least resistance, it`s a good idea.
2006 If one discounts 2003, when Peralta was forced into the Indians` starting shortstop job well ahead of schedule due to an Omar Vizquel injury, one can see that his outstanding 2005 campaign simply continued the progress he has made at the plate since hitting Double-A in 2002. Handed the shortstop job in spring training, Peralta had nothing less than one of the 20 best seasons ever by a shortstop under the age of 24. In what should have been his rookie season, Peralta was a legitimate Gold Glove and MVP candidate who was overlooked for the former and shut out of the voting for the latter. He should be a cornerstone of this franchise for a long time.
2005 Peralta and Brandon Phillips, who may be 2006's double-play combination, have two things in common: they each bombed in their initial big league exposure in 2003, and their offensive games are way too reliant on batting average to be trusted. It was time for Cleveland to move on from Omar Vizquel, but unless Peralta's jump in BA comes to the majors and then sustains—and both those things almost never happen—he won't be an impact player. PECOTA doesn't penalize him for having an unnecessary consonant in his first name, but it should.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-14 18:00:00 (link to chat)Who should Tiger fans be rooting for out these last 4 teams? Perhaps the Royals, since that would ensure years more employment for Dayton Moore and Ned Yost?
(John from Cincinnati)
The Orioles have Quintin Berry (non-rostered) and Delmon Young, but a championship may fatten the Andrew Miller price tag. For the ERoyals, I think Moore and Yost are hanging around regardless, and if they win then we can say the AL Central's lifespan has seen dynasties by the Indians, Twins and Tigers but championships from the Royals and White Sox. What a world. Inherently Tigers fans cannot wish well on the Giants nor the Cardinals for pseudo-clutch reasons. But Jhonny Peralta deserves to be happy, so if that's what happens then good for him. After all that's how Gerald Laird got his ring. (Matt Sussman)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)20-team mixed dynasty, I own Tulo. His DL time this year killed me in the playoffs, and I am now looking to deal him. Obviously youth/health are the way to go, I know, but Segura and Bogaerts are probably not workable deals (team dynamics won't work). I also own Addison Russel, but I hesitate to trust rookies right away, especially as a top 3 team right now. Suggestions?
(AJ from Phoenix)
Shortstop is a pretty mixed bag at the moment. You could downgrade to Hanley and change but that's not going to ease your mind when it comes to health injuries. Your other options are Jhonny Peralta, or hoping someone like Ian Desmond can bring the batting average up a bit. No one is going to give you what Tulo does when healthy though. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 5x5 (with obp) in which I have a big lead in steals, should I drop Jean Segura for Alexei Ramirez or Jhonny Peralta? I was wondering this before his tragedy, and now I wonder if he will even be able to come back any time soon. Hopefully he and his family can find a way to get through this.
(Hangin on from D.C.)
Yeah, it's just horrific what happened to Segura and his family. Awkwardly shifting to the fantasy angle, I'd go for Peralta if you're looking for non-speed offense. (Paul Sporer)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a 5x5 (with obp) in which I have a big lead in steals, should I drop Jean Segura for Alexei Ramirez or Jhonny Peralta?

(Hangin On from D.C.)
I think this was a double question (Paul Sporer)
2013-11-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)I understand no qualifying offer for Jhonny Peralta, but Omar Infante and Joaquin Benoit? They need both guys and now if they don't sign they don't get a draft pick either.
(DetroitDale from Tallahassee (eternal spring training))
What relievers have ever made qualifying offer money? Rivera, and...Rivera. Papelbon, almost. Benoit is good, but he's not going to get that on the open market. I agree that there was a more compelling case to make for extending the QO to Infante. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-08-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)There is speculation in the Detroit media that the Tigers won't take Peralta back, despite the obvious boost he gives them at shortstop, because of "image" concerns. I think that, if they don't play him and lose at any point, their image is tarnished forever. The Giants got to the WS because of a huge contribution from Melky. What do you think?
(Tigerdog from Orange county CA)
Well, they did trade for Iglalasis.

Tigerdog, hijacking your question to run this. It's official:


Major League Baseball issued the following discipline today for violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program in relation to the Biogenesis investigation. Players receiving 50-game suspensions without pay for their violations of the Program are:

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo;
San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera;
New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli;
Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz;
• Padres pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas League;
Houston Astros pitcher Sergio Escalona, who is currently of the roster of the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks of the Texas League;
• Yankees outfielder Fernando Martinez, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League;
Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League;
• Free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto;
Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta;
New York Mets outfielder Cesar Puello, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League; and
• Mets infielder/outfielder Jordany Valdespin, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League.

Norberto’s suspension will be effective immediately once he signs with another Major League organization. All other suspensions are effective immediately. None of the players will appeal their discipline.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon and Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, all of whom already have served 50-game suspensions as a result of their violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program stemming from their connections to Biogenesis, will not receive additional discipline.
Major League Baseball’s investigation found no violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez or Baltimore Orioles infielder Danny Valencia.

STATEMENT FROM THE TIGERS:
The Detroit Tigers today issued the following statement regarding the suspension of Jhonny Peralta:

"We recognize the suspension of Jhonny Peralta for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program as a measure taken in the best interest of the game. The Detroit Tigers continue to fully support Major League Baseball's policy and its efforts to eliminate performance enhancing drugs from our game. Per the protocol outline by Major League Baseball's collective bargaining agreement, the Tigers' organization will provide no further comment on Peralta’s suspension."

STATEMENT FROM PERALTA:
“In spring of 2012, I made a terrible mistake that I deeply regret. I apologize to everyone that I have hurt as a result of my mistake, including my teammates, the Tigers’ organization, the great fans in Detroit, Major League Baseball, and my family. I take full responsibility for my actions, have no excuses for my lapse in judgment and I accept my suspension.
I love the fans, my teammates and this organization and my greatest punishment is knowing that I have let so many good people down. I promise to do everything possible to try and earn back the respect that I have lost.” (Maury Brown About Biogenesis and Business)
2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Aybar? I picked up Peralta as a replacement when he went down and he's been sooo much better.
(dandaman from Sea Cliff)
Hi dandaman.

Erick Aybar is a solid fantasy player because of the steals but he suffered a hamstring injury earlier this year and hasn't been running since he returned. He is doing absolutely nothing else, so while a bounce back is likely you can feel free to keep Jhonny Peralta and dump Aybar in a mixed format. (Mike Gianella)
2013-05-22 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Jason- here's my situation: I picked up Jhonny Peralta and Kelly Johnson to fill in for Aybar and Aaron Hill. They have both exceeded expectations to the point that I haven't put Aybar back in my lineup and I'm really not sure I'd put in Hill when he returns. Complicating the situation I just managed to pick up Profar as well. My dilemma is that I'm not sure any of them really have fair trade value for me and I don't want to drop them. Your thoughts on the players involved and what you would do with the situation? Thanks
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
Aaron Hill hasn't resumed baseball activities yet and Profar doesn't have a clear path to playing time after Kinsler returns. Johnson has been outstanding and I think he could be in line for more playing time out of the 2-hole here eventually because he's that productive with his plate appearances. I'd try to move Profar first, and then Peralta because at least Johnson is also running. (Jason Collette)
2012-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see big (or at least notable) regression from Alex Avila and Jhonny Peralta? The seasons posted by these two were key factors in the Tigers winning 95 last year.
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
I think any time you see a guy post a 6 WARP season who has never done anything like that before, you expect a good deal of regression. Peralta's numbers were more in line with his career, although again any time you see an outsized performance you expect some falloff. (Colin Wyers)
2011-08-26 16:00:00 (link to chat)With Carlos Guillen and Magglio Ordonez done, the Tigers have an extra $20M/year to play with in the offseason, I say go get Jose Reyes, put him at second, then you can run out an infield of C Alex Avila, 1B Miguel Cabrera, 2B Reyes, SS Jhonny Peralta, 3B Nick Castellanos. Sound like a plan? If not who should the Tigers go after with the $20m?
(DetroitDale from Florida (eternal spring training))
I would check with Dave Dombrowksi on that stuff -- he seems to have Tigers going pretty good these days (John Coppolella)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Jason Donald actually play shortstop? Because he hasn't thus far. Who plays 2B for CLE in 2012, Jason Kipnis? Should the Tribe let Jhonny Peralta play SS for two weeks in a desperate attempt to show off his "versatility?" (But seriously: Donald is an atrocious SS.)
(buffum from Austin TX)
What's wrong with Asdrubal? Is he going to be gone in 2012, guaranteed? (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would it take to get Aaron Harang from the Reds? I'm wondering if their desire to shed salary and his misleading numbers might make them likely to unload him. Their catchers and shortstop were horrific this season: could the Indians craft a package with Kelly Shoppach, Jhonny Peralta, and a pitching prospect not named Hector or Nick, or would the Reds be looking for a pure prospect package?
(buffum from Austin TX)
Do they have a desire to shed salary? They're not paying that many people as is. I can't see your offer getting it done, even granting your premise. That's a terrible deal. You'd have to do it with real prospects. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Andy Marte deserve a starting spot on the Indians next year? And what is the perception of Grady Sizemore? Still a top ten player to build around?
(Andy from Saskatoon)
He deserves consideration, anyway. The Indians' LF/1B/3B situation might need clarity, which I would provide with a long overdue trade of Jhonny Peralta. That still leaves Matt LaPorta, who ends up at first once Michael Brantley is deemed ready. Not sure Marte can fade all this competition. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of these SS's do you think would have the most value in a trade around the league: Jhonny Peralta, JJ Hardy, or Mike Young?
(Lincoln from Dallas)
Peralta has a better deal and more upside. I think we know who Hardy and Young are. Young's in decline and while I think he has value, that contract's going to look bad in a year or so. Now, put him on the right team where he's the hard-charging veteran or shift him to second and I think it improves. He'd work well on the Cubs. (Will Carroll)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)People in Cleveland are clamoring for Jhonny Peralta to move to 3B. Isn't he one of the best SS? Wouldn't the Tribe be better off signing a one year stop gap or giving Wes Hodges the gig in 2009?
(warclub from Strongsville, OH )
Asdrubal Cabrera is the best shortstop the Indians have, and should be playing there. Whether that means Peralta at second base, shortstop or another team is irrelevant.
Eric Wedge pinch-hit Jamey Carroll for Andy Marte the other day in a high-leverage situation. Why? What good is the rest of your season if not to find out if Andy Marte can be a major leaguer? (Joe Sheehan)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)What happened to the Indians? There are no sure things, but usually injuries play a part when things don't happen. Only Haffner, a huge disappointment, is hurt.
(john from ct)
The problem with trusting to your ability to put together functioning platoons in the outfield corners is that you have to have enough working parts to put them together, and the Indians didn't, not really. Andy Marte's failure to develop is something nobody really foresaw, but I think there's also a lot to be said for how much Jhonny Peralta's been a tough player to figure out what to do with, and Garko's limited upside doesn't really help, and add in Hafner's tragic case of the olds seems to really just cinch a system-wide failure on offense. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was surprised that Jhonny Peralta wouldn't be one of the top 14 shortstops with his power potential: I mean, having the range of a houseplant doesn't factor into 5x5, right?
(Buff from Austin TX)
I'm not the person to ask for positive things to say about Peralta. He was disappointing again last year, and if you adjust for his BABIP, he comes out even worse. PECOTA isn't a huge fan either, and remember how much it loved him last season. (Marc Normandin)
