Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta is another fit for the Colorado Rockies

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta could be another fit for the Colorado Rockies since they need an outfielder.

Peralta, 34, didn’t hit for much power but he still had a decent season. He played in 150 games and he hit .259/.325/.402 with 30 doubles, eight triples, eight homers, 63 RBI, a 96 OPS+, and a 1.1 WAR.

In 2020, he played in 54 games and he hit .300 with an OPS of .773 and an OPS+ of 108. In 2019, he was injured for part of the season (99 games) but he still hit .275 with an OPS of .804 and an OPS+ of 106. Despite only playing in 99 games, he still won a Gold Glove award for his play in left field (7 DRS).

In 2018, he won a Silver Slugger Award after having 30 homers, 87 RBI, a slash line of .293/.352/.516 with an OPS+ of 127.

In his career at Coors Field, he has been a great hitter as, in 47 games, he has hit .337/.373/.543 with 12 doubles, three triples, six homers, and 29 RBI. His tOPS+ (his OPS+ compared to his career stats) is 126, which means he has been 26 percent better at Coors than in his career.

Like Marte, Peralta is entering the final year of free agency but there are not any team options on him so he would be much cheaper to acquire.

Our trade target series for the Colorado Rockies continues with the Los Angeles Dodgers up next.
