Oswald Peraza, one of the New York Yankees’ promising prospects, missed Tuesday’s spring training game due to shoulder tightness, as Greg Joyce of New York Post Sports reported.

Initially slated to play against the Tampa Bay Rays, Oswald Peraza was scratched from the lineup because of discomfort in his right shoulder. Yankees manager Aaron Boone reassures fans that the setback appears to be a “day-to-day” issue and anticipates Peraza’s return later in the week.

Oswald Peraza’s versatility and role with the Yankees

Oswald Peraza’s absence highlights his value to the team, given his versatility across the infield positions of second base, third base, and shortstop. In his place, the Yankees fielded Jorbit Vivas at second, Anthony Volpe at shortstop, and Oswaldo Cabrera at third during their 4-2 loss against the Rays.

While Oswald Peraza’s injury seems minor, it underscores the uncertainty surrounding his role with the Yankees. At 22 years old, Peraza is highly esteemed within the team’s farm system and has been a subject of trade discussions. Despite his potential, Peraza’s major league experience is limited, having played in only 70 games.

The Yankees’ infield depth, including players like Gleyber Torres, Anthony Volpe, and DJ LeMahieu, has relegated Oswald Peraza to a bench role. Consequently, he has spent considerable time with the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre team and has frequently been mentioned in trade talks.

Nevertheless, Oswald Peraza remains determined to prove himself as a major league asset for the Yankees. However, with this recent injury setback, his opportunity to make a lasting impression will likely be delayed until later in the week.
