David Peralta, a seasoned outfielder with a substantial Major League Baseball track record, has entered free agency after deciding to leave his minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs. At 36, Peralta is on the lookout for a new team where he can add value with his outfield expertise.

Peralta, a left-handed batter, signed with the Cubs in late February as he was on the mend from a flexor tendon surgery performed on his left elbow in the previous October.

During his stint with the Cubs' Triple-A team, the Iowa Cubs, he posted a batting average of .217, an on-base percentage of .341, and a slugging percentage of .381. His performance included two home runs and eight RBIs across 20 games.

The Venezuelan outfielder played the 2023 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, appearing in 133 games. His season statistics included a batting average of .259, an on-base percentage of .294, and a slugging percentage of .381, culminating in a .675 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS). He also contributed seven home runs, 55 RBIs, and accumulated 102 hits in 394 at-bats.

Before joining the Dodgers, Peralta spent over eight seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was then traded to the Tampa Bay Rays before the 2022 trade deadline. Over his career spanning 1,141 games, Peralta has achieved a .274 batting average, hit 117 home runs, and driven in 541 runs, showcasing his consistent presence at the plate throughout his MLB tenure.

Now a free agent, Peralta is poised to bring his experience and skill set to a new team in need of a veteran outfielder.
