Diamondbacks returned RHP Starling Peralta to Cubs.
The Rule 5 pick impressed early on in D'Backs camp, but it became apparent over four Cactus League appearances that he wasn't ready, as he allowed seven runs and walked three over three frames. He'll likely enter the Cubs' High-A rotation. Fri, Mar 15, 2013 09:34:00 AM

Rule 5 pick Starling Peralta has impressed early on during Diamondbacks' camp.

Peralta, 22, has some work to do with his command, but he has a live arm that intrigues the D'Backs. "I don’t think right-handed hitters would be very comfortable standing in there against him," general manager Kevin Towers said. Barring an injury, Peralta will have a hard time cracking Arizona's Opening Day roster, as the rotation and bullpen appear set. It's possible the D'Backs will try to work out a trade with the Cubs in order to keep him.

Diamondbacks selected RHP Starling Peralta from the Cubs with the 14th pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft.

Peralta had a 3.44 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 86/42 K/BB ratio in 99 1/3 frames this summer at Class A Peoria. The 22-year-old is doubtful to stick with the Diamondbacks.
