Dec 17, 2018: Like several of his Reds teammates, shortstop Jose Peraza decided that his offseason base needed to be at the team's player development complex in Goodyear, Ariz. Peraza's reasons were both professional and personal.
"My wife is pregnant," said Peraza, who is from Venezuela. "I wanted to stay close to her, work out in the morning and then stay the rest of the day with my wife. I like Arizona. It has good weather."
When he is at the complex, Peraza is focused on building his core strength, especially his left side muscles. He's been doing a lot of weightlifting and training because he wants to keep feeling stronger.
"It's what I did last year. I like working hard, hard, hard, and it feels good," Peraza said.
Partially because he struggled during 2017, Peraza was often written off before last season and sometimes overlooked even as he performed well.
With his improved strength, Peraza quietly improved his hitting skills and produced throughout 2018. Still only 24, he batted .288/.326/.416 with 14 home runs, 58 RBIs, 23 steals and a 97 OPS+ over 157 games. He was valued at 2.3 wins above replacement by Baseball-Reference.
