Yankees’ Oswald Peraza starts injury rehab assignment with a bang

New York Yankees infielder Oswald Peraza began his injury rehab assignment Tuesday, and it went off without a hitch.

Working his way back from a shoulder strain he suffered during spring training, Peraza began his rehab assignment with the Tampa Tarpons—the Low-A affiliates of the Yankees.

In his rehab game Tuesday night, Peraza went 2-for-3 with a home run and a stolen base.

Peraza showed some flashes when he was called up during the 2023 season, but there’s still a long way to go before he claims a regular role on the Major League roster.

In 52 games during the 2023 season, Peraza hit .191 with two home runs and 14 RBI while walking 13 times.

It’s likely Peraza will need a handful more rehab games before the Yankees take him off the injured list, which means stops in Double-A Somerset and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre could be on the docket for the young infielder.
