Build: Athletic and sturdy frame; power bottom; maxed framed.
Mechanics: Low 3/4 arm slot; above-average arm speed; short arm action; top and bottom half consistently out of sync; front side opens up; mild drive; stiff; reliant on upper half for most of FB velo; delivery times 1.20 - 1.35.

T94 4x; lacks plane and is flat more often than not; armside run; elevated offering throughout start and was consistently barreled; command and control both need significant refinement; velo will not be enough to succeed unless he can tighten command and control.
Inconsistent arm speed replication; sweeping action; release points are highly inconsistent; refinement in arm speed and release points will improve offering a tick.
Poor arm speed replication; poor pitch with no feel or movement.

Peralta has a lively FB but lacks the plane, command and control to efficiently work through a lineup. His SL and CH are not strong enough to stick as a SP, but there is enough with the FB/SL to work as a org arm or potential up-and-down RP. The risk is high, as there is much worked needed with refinement of the arsenal.
