Insight: Peralta has gone 5-for-9 with four extra-base hits in his last three games after going 0-for-20 in his previous six.

Insight: Peralta missed roughly a third of the season while serving a PED suspension last summer but when he was out there, he was very productive (.303, 11 HR, 55 RBI). The deal also represents a sizable raise for Peralta, who earned $6 million in 2013.
