Jose Peraza

So there's a question that's going to be asked by the Braves FO very soon and that's what to do with Jose Peraza? Before being promoted to AA he was sitting on a .345/.373/.459 slash line with 40 steal and 9 triples. He projects to become the leadoff man we haven't had since Furcal left forever ago the problem is he's now blocked in the middle infield by Simmons and La Stella. Before anyone goes on a tangent about trading La Stella that's just something you don't do with a guy who has gotten on base at a .380 or better clip at every stop he's had on his way to the big leagues. So the question becomes and I ask all of you. If you were the Braves what do you do? Who do you move? And where do you play Peraza?

CF of the future. OBP is a little worrisome though.

He seems to be improving each year. Even if he's @ .350 he's still be OK at the top of the order with his speed. Look at Michael Bourn, he's been a successful lead-off man, and he's only topped .350 OBP once in his career.

And I agree, I suspect he'll end up in CF.

I'm more concerned at the fact that his OBP is so close to his average. Means it's all from hits. We don't need another Simmons at the plate.

Never seemed to bother anybody when Furcal was doing the same thing.

Actually Furcal carried his own OBP with 50/60 walks a season for the most part.

2000 - .295 AVG, 394 OBP, 73 BB, 80 SO

2001 - .275 AVG, .321 OBP, 24 BB, 56 SO (only played 79 games)

2002 - .275 AVG, .323 OBP, 43 BB, 114 SO

2003 - .292 AVG, .352 OBP, 60 BB, 76 SO

2004 - .279 AVG, .344 OBP, 58 BB, 71 SO

2005 - .284 AVG, .348 OBP, 62 BB, 78 SO

I guess we'll see how well Peraza's bat translates and if his plate discipline gets better.

Peraza is going to force his way onto the MLB roster. I know he'd look better on the bench than Uggla.

Except you don't put a promising young player on the bench. They need regular play time. Unless you're just speaking of September call ups.
