Fans of the New York Yankees will one day have the opportunity to see highly regarded shortstop prospect Oswald Peraza in pinstripes, rather than just seeing his name in the box scores and highlights.

Oswaldo Cabrera has experience working as Peraza’s double play partner, so he is aware of what it is like to watch Peraza play on the field.

Because Peraza is so talented, Cabrera had no choice but to introduce him to his parents not too long ago.

Cabrera played second base for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre while Peraza played shortstop. Baseball America ranks Peraza as the Yankees’ No. 2 overall prospect behind Anthony Volpe, who has been mashing at Double-A Somerset but won’t see the majors until late next season. Peraza is ranked No. 78 by Baseball America.

Cabrera, Peraza’s Triple-A roommate, said he “makes hard plays look easy”

In 92 games with the Railriders, Peraza hit .259 with 17 homers, 45 RBI, and a .770 OPS. Peraza hit .323 with 12 homers, 30 RBI, and a .948 OPS since June 11. Isiah Kiner-Falefa has given the Yankees shortstop confidence. The Yankees are excited about Peraza’s future, said GM Brian Cashman.

After playing behind Peraza, righty Clarke Schmidt called him a “very special talent.”

Peraza’s arm strength impressed Schmidt.
