Biography Timeline


The Cleveland Indians signed Peralta as an amateur free agent in 1999 and assigned him to the Dominican Summer League Indians that season. Peralta batted .303 with a .398 on-base percentage (OBP) and a .514 slugging percentage (SLG); 41 percent of his hits went for extra bases. Those figures were boosted by an unsustainable .373 batting average on balls in play (BABIP). Nevertheless, the Indians promoted him aggressively.


In 2000, the 18-year-old Peralta played for the Columbus RedStixx, the Class A affiliate of the Indians in the South Atlantic League. He batted .241 in 106 games, playing all but one game at shortstop (the other was at third base). The following season he advanced to the Kinston Indians, the Cleveland Indians High-A affiliate in the Carolina League. In 125 games, he batted .240. In 2002, Peralta moved up to the Double-A Akron Aeros, where he hit .281. In 2003, he batted .257 in 63 games with the Buffalo Bisons. After his 2003 call up to the major leagues, Peralta began to draw widespread attention for his hitting with the Aeros and Bisons.


Peralta made his Major League debut with Cleveland on June 12, 2003, filling in for the injured Gold Glove shortstop Omar Vizquel. He finished with a .227 batting average with four HR and 21 RBIs. The next season, despite his accomplishments at the Triple-A level, Peralta saw just 25 at bats (AB) in eight games at the major league level due to the presence of perennial fan-favorite Vizquel, who left the Indians as a free agent following the 2004 season.


In 2004, he batted .326 with 15 home runs (HR) and 86 runs batted in (RBI). He also scored 109 runs and stroked 44 doubles, the most ever in the Bisons' modern era, followed by 39 for Kevin Pillar in 2014. This offensive leap helped him win the International League Most Valuable Player Award that year and helped Buffalo win the Governors' Cup as the International League champions. He also received the Lou Boudreau Award as the Indians' 2004 Minor League Player of the Year.


Peralta became Cleveland's full-time starting shortstop early in 2005 and batted .292. On July 3, he became affixed in the Indians' third slot in the batting order. Cleveland then won 23 of their next 33 games to put them one game behind the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics in the Wild Card race late in August. He joined Woodie Held as the only shortstops in Indians' history to hit at least 20 HR. His 24 HR and 78 RBI set records for an Indians shortstop.


On March 10, 2006, Peralta agreed to a five-year contract with an option for a sixth year to stay with the Indians until the 2011 season. However, his 2006 season saw a decline both offensively and defensively from the previous season. At the start of spring training in 2007, it was revealed that Peralta suffered from vision problems in 2006 and had corrective LASIK eye surgery to deal with it.


After breaking an 0 for 8 skid on May 1, 2009, against the Detroit Tigers, Peralta's 86th career home run with the Indians broke the team record for shortstops Woodie Held had held. His HR was solo, providing the margin of victory for Cleveland in a 6–5 score.


Peralta hit his first inside-the-park home run on July 18, 2010, against Tigers pitcher Andy Oliver on a play in which outfielder Ryan Raburn crashed through the bullpen door attempting to catch the ball.


Peralta was named to his first career All-Star Game as a replacement for Derek Jeter on July 8, 2011. He finished the regular season with a career-high .299 batting average and collected 21 home runs and 86 RBI. Playing a full season at shortstop for the first time since 2008, he committed just seven errors in 608 chances for a career-best .988 fielding percentage. Peralta hit his first walk-off home run as a Tiger against the Chicago White Sox on May 4, 2012.


However, the signing drew scrutiny because he had served the suspension for his connection to the Biogenesis scandal. Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler spearheaded a cacophony of complaints that the 50-game suspension was not enough of a deterrent, because he viewed that it failed to prevent players who violated the collective bargaining agreement's banned substances use policy to receive compensation for their performances equal to those who had not been found to violate the policy. Cabrera had signed with the Toronto Blue Jays for two years and $16 million following his suspension in 2012; however, little protest had arisen from those relatively modest figures.


On June 20, 2013, Peralta hit a walkoff two-run home run off Boston Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey to secure the Tigers' victory, 4–3. It was the Tigers' first walkoff win of the season. That season, Peralta was named to his second AL All-Star team as a reserve shortstop. This was his first selection by player vote (his previous selection was as an injury replacement). Peralta entered the All-Star break with a .303 batting average, eight home runs and 46 RBIs.

On November 24, 2013, Peralta signed a four-year contract worth $53 million with the St. Louis Cardinals. Featuring a declining salary structure, the contract commenced with his salary at $15.5 million in 2014, then $15 million, $12.5 million, and finally $10 million in 2017. Without a qualifying offer from the Tigers, the Cardinals were not obligated to return a first-round draft pick.


On April 27, 2014, Peralta hit his first multi-homer game in Busch Stadium against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It also gave him six home runs for the month, surpassing Édgar Rentería's club record of five in April he set for shortstops in 2000. Peralta surpassed another team record for shortstops Rentería set in 2000, hitting his 17th home run of the season on August 20. While he produced his usual amount of home runs, his batting average was inconsistent early in the season. In each month from April to August, it progressed from .196 to .237 to .241 to .252 to .270.


On May 25, 2015, Peralta hit a walk-off home run in the tenth inning against the Diamondbacks, his seventh home run of the season. In his time with the Cardinals through June 1, he ranked first in extra-base hits (80) and home runs (29), third in RBI (101), second in slugging percentage (.461) and OPS (.804) and fourth in on-base percentage (.361) among MLB shortstops. On defense, he did not rely heavily on range, but on smart positioning and making the routine plays, qualifying him for +1 defensive runs saved after saving 17 the year before.

He was selected as the National League's starting shortstop in the All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati after batting .298 with 13 home runs and 46 RBI over the first 87 games in 2015. After the All-Star break, he batted .243, and produced three doubles and two home runs over the final two months, or 54 games. Peralta finished the season with a .275 batting average, 17 home runs, 71 RBI, 26 doubles, and 159 hits in 155 games played.


Thumb injuries caused Peralta to miss significant time in 2016. While fielding a ball during spring training on March 7, he damaged an ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. He underwent surgery to repair the ligament and was expected to miss 10 to 12 weeks of play. He began a rehabilitation assignment with the Single-A Peoria Chiefs on May 20, 2016, and the club activated him for game action before a series against Cincinnati on June 7. The Cardinals placed him back on the on disabled list on July 19 due to swelling in the left thumb, although that injury appeared unrelated to the torn ligament and an MRI had revealed no structural damage, per Mozeliak. In 2017 he batted .204/.259/.204. He was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on June 9, 2017 and he was released on June 13.


The Boston Red Sox signed Jhonny Peralta on June 23, 2017. The Red Sox were in serious need of a third baseman after Hernandez and Holt suffered season-ending injuries, Rutledge juggled 2B and 3B after an injury to Pedroia, Marrero was struggling with his bat, and an injury-plagued Pablo Sandoval made multiple mistakes at the plate and at the hot corner before an ear infection. The Red Sox were left with Marrero at third, when Dombrowski announced the team would be making serious improvements at third. That came on the same day as the Peralta signing.

Peralta never played in a Major League game for the Red Sox, and on July 13, 2017, he was released by the Red Sox.
