Earlier, we learned that free agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta was seeking a four- or five-year deal in the $56-75 million range. It is far and away more than even the most optimistic would have expected for Peralta when the off-season began, but a dearth of quality at shortstop and a glut of potential suitors has driven Peralta’s value up.
According to Peter Gammons on Twitter, Peralta has already received multiple four-year offers from teams worth $52 million. The Mets and Yankees were reportedly interested, as were the Orioles who could put him in left field. Jon Morosi of FOX Sports later added that the Cardinals could pursue Peralta as well, though they are not one of the teams that has put a four-year offer on the table.
