Peralta had 120 IP in 2017 and 141 IP in 2018 between the minors and majors. I have a hard time believing that now that they are in the hunt (really in the driver’s seat) and probably need to win their division given both Wild Cards are probably going to go NL West, they are going to completely pull the plug on any of their big 3. They need those guys.

Id have to agree with you there, and he’s been absolutely sensational. I’ll admit I am biased though. Freddy has been a find, and all along the path all I have heard from prospect analysts and fantasy analysts is reasons why he wouldn’t be good.. and now he’s even better. No disrespect to Paul, hey he could be right, but I’ll bet on Freddy.

No worries on missing 2018. I’m heavily biased as a Peralta holder so take it for what it’s worth but unless they run away with it, I have a hard time seeing them totally bench him a la Strasburg back whenever. I can absolutely see either shortened starts or a phantom IL stint in which case I can just put him on the IL and deal with it
