Jose Peraza
26-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Boston Red Sox
2020 Fantasy Outlook
After a breakout season in 2018, Peraza gave back all of his gains at the plate and then some in 2019. A glance at his batted ball data reveals a sea of red flags. His exit velocity (84.6 mph), hard hit rate (31.9%) and Barrel/PA percentage (0.3%) were among the very worst in the league. Even his one skill that was expected to be a positive, his speed, turned mediocre -- he stole just seven bases, getting caught six times. It's no wonder that the Reds decided to non-tender him in December instead of going through the arbitration process. The Red Sox signed him to a one-year, $3 million deal, and he could conceivably win the starting job at second base, although he would almost assuredly be batting ninth in the order. His raw speed is still in the 75th percentile, but based on his 2019 season, we are skeptical he will get on base enough to really put that speed to work. Read Past Outlooks
