    News

    Peraza will start at shortstop and bat sixth Monday against the Astros, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Impact

    Peraza will enter the lineup for the second straight game and fourth time in five contests while Jose Iglesias (personal) remains on paternity leave. With Iglesias expected back by Wednesday, Peraza should soon shift back into the utility role he's occupied for the last few weeks.

    News

    Peraza avoided injury despite colliding with center fielder Nick Senzel in Wednesday's win over the Indians, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. He went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in the win.

    Impact

    Peraza ranged back on a pop fly and didn't hear Senzel calling him off on the play, after Senzel made a late call on the ball. Senzel elbowed Peraza in the head on the play, and Senzel banged his ankle, but both remained in the game.

    News

    Peraza went 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in the Reds' win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Impact

    Peraza increasingly has been getting playing time in left field when the Reds face a left-hander, as they did Tuesday. His overall line is still a disappointing .213/.275/.335, but he's shown some signs of life at the plate over the last 10 days.

    News

    Peraza will start at second base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Impact

    Peraza will stick in the lineup for a third straight game, but it's worth noting that Joey Votto (hamstring) has been sidelined for all of those contests. Per Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer, manager David Bell expects Votto to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Nationals, so it's likely that Derek Dietrich will shift over to second base for that contest and bump Peraza to a bench role. Peraza is slashing just .190/.301/.349 in May and has done little to justify receiving more work at the expense of Dietrich, who has upped his home-run total to a team-best 17 after slugging four long balls over the past two contests.
