  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Fans nine in 5.2 spring frames

    Peralta pitched in six Grapefruit League games, allowing one run on eight hits and two walks while posting a 9:2 K:BB over 5.2 innings.

    Peralta's 14.3 K/9 this spring probably shouldn't be hyped up too much given that the veteran has never averaged a strikeout per inning in any of his seven big-league campaigns. Still, it was a good spring overall for the left-hander, who is coming off a career-best performance last season during which he posted a 2.72 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB across 56.1 innings. Peralta is expected to have an important role in the Yankees' bullpen again this season, as he's currently the only lefty reliever slated to be on the Opening Day roster.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Signs one-year deal

    Peralta and the Yankees agreed to a one-year deal Saturday, avoiding arbitration.

    The 31-year-old lefty is coming off a career year, as he finished 2022 with a 2.72 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 56.1 innings of relief. He saved four games and could be one of the options for saves again this season if Clay Holmes struggles or gets hurt, though the Yankees may instead want to match Peralta up against opposing team's toughest lefties. Left-handed hitters slashed just .155/.211/.211 in 77 plate appearances against him last season.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Ready for ALDS

    Peralta (back) will be activated from the injured list and named to the ALDS roster ahead of Tuesday's Game 1 against Cleveland, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    Peralta was placed on the 15-day injured list Sept. 19 due to left thoracic spine tightness, but the veteran reliever will be activated prior to Game 1 of the ALDS. He appeared in 56 games for the Yankees during the regular season, accruing a 2.72 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with a 47:17 K:BB across 56.1 innings.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Won't return this week

    Peralta (back) won't travel with the Yankees on Monday for the final series of the regular season at Texas, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    The 31-year-old will continue his rehab at Somerset and could throw a live bullpen session this week. Peralta has been a key bullpen piece with a 2.72 ERA in 56 appearances for New York this year, and it appears he could be available for the start of the ALDS, which begins Oct. 11.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Throws bullpen session

    Peralta (back) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Marly Rivera of reports.

    Peralta has been on the injured list for a week and a half due to left thoracic spine tightness, but he's resumed mound work and felt good after Thursday's throwing session. The Yankees initially hoped that Peralta would be available for next week's series in Texas, and he'll likely be considered for activation as long as he continues to feel good.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Headed to injured list

    Peralta (back) will be placed on the injured list with thoracic spine tightness Thursday, retroactive to Sept. 19, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Peralta struggled Sunday against the Brewers, giving up two runs on three hits while failing to record an out. The move is backdated to Monday, and the Yankees hope that the left-hander will be available for the team's final series of the regular season since his injury isn't considered particularly serious, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Records extra-inning save

    Peralta picked up the save Tuesday against Boston. He allowed no earned runs on one hit and no walks while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning.

    Peralta entered the game up 7-4 with one out and two runners on in the 10th inning. He allowed a single and a sacrifice fly to score both inherited runners but struck out Rafael Devers to end the game and record his fourth save of the season and first since Aug. 23. Peralta has been effective for the Yankees, as he owns a 2.41 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 56 innings this season.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Yields run but earns save

    Peralta allowed a run on two hits and struck out two in one inning to earn the save in Friday's 3-2 win over the Athletics.

    It wasn't the sharpest of outings, but Peralta was able to protect a two-run lead. This was the second straight appearance in which he's earned a save. As a high-leverage lefty, he could be in line for some matchup-based opportunities in the ninth inning while Clay Holmes (back) and Scott Effross (shoulder) are on the injured list. Peralta has pitched to a solid 2.57 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 40:17 K:BB through 49 innings this year while adding three saves, eight holds and a 2-3 record in 48 appearances.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Collects second save

    Peralta recorded the final out of Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Mets to pick up his second save of the season.

    Clarke Schmidt tried to do his best Goose Gossage impression and save the rest of the bullpen by working three scoreless innings in relief of Frankie Montas, but after Schmidt loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth inning, Peralta was brought in and got Francisco Lindor to fly out. With Clay Holmes (back) and Scott Effross (shoulder) both on the injured list and Aroldis Chapman still untrustworthy, just about every Yankees reliever could find himself in a save situation, but Peralta might be the top high-leverage lefty the club has at the moment. On the season, he sports a 2.44 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB through 48 innings with two wins and eight holds in addition to his saves.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Records eighth hold

    Peralta needed only 12 pitches to retire four hitters, and he finished with his seventh straight scoreless outing. Over that span, he's allowed only two hits and posted a 9:3 K:BB over 6.2 innings. Peralta has been one of New York's best relievers this season, posting a 1.99 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 25:10 K:BB across 31.2 frames. He's registered eight holds, a save and two wins.

  • Yankees' Wandy Peralta: Notches win Monday

    Peralta (2-1) earned the win over Tampa Bay on Monday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he allowed one walk and struck out one batter.

    Peralta was called upon in the bottom of the ninth after the Yankees had taken a two-run lead in the top of the frame. He allowed a walk to begin his outing and also had a batter reach base on an error behind him, but the left-hander was able to close out the contest without allowing any runs to score. Though the situation in which he entered would typically net Peralta a save, the official scorer instead decided to credit him with the win per MLB Rule 9.17(c).
