News: Peralta is out of the lineup Wednesday, Fox Sports Midwest reports. Impact: Pete Kozma will get a rare start at shortstop to give Peralta well-deserved day off. A shortstop who has 20 home runs, 66 RBI and a .266/.342/.456 slash line is a pretty rare commodity in fantasy. What makes Peralta's season even more valuable is he was dirt cheap on draft day. The primary reason for this is that, while we've seen 20 homer seasons from him before, he had only hit 24 total big flies in his previous two seasons (257 games) combined.(RotoWire, )

News: Peralta went 1-for-4 with a run scored and one RBI as he hit his 19th homer of the year Friday against the Brewers. Impact: The Cardinals shortstop also drove in his 63rd RBI of the year, while continuing to show his value as a good power source at an infield position. Peralta (.264/.341/.453) gives fantasy owners consistent production year-to-year.(RotoWire, )
