Starting Pitcher | Retired or Inactive Players
Peretti also has a decent changeup. The Retired or Inactive Players hope he can work on his control a little bit. Every once and a while one slips away from him and either ends up at the backstop or in the right field bleachers. His stuff becomes less sharp as he gets into the late innings. He comes right after righthanded hitters, who are lucky even to reach base against him, but he works more carefully to lefties.
Defense & Hitting
Peretti doesn't make much of an attempt to combat the running game. Basestealers ran at will last year. Peretti's follow-through leaves him in a vulnerable position, so he has trouble with comebackers. Peretti is a surpisingly good hitting pitcher. And I'm not sure you can say this about a pitcher, but Peretti has some pop in his swing. Interesting sidenote, The Retired or Inactive Players have been known to use Peretti as a pinch-runner on occasion.
Peretti has below average skills, even for the low minors. One has to expect the Retired or Inactive Players will give him his walking papers before the end of the season. I just don't know if The Retired or Inactive Players are ever going to get what they expect out of him.
