Ofelky Peralta Named Orioles Minor League Pitcher of the Month

SALISBURY, MD - The Baltimore Orioles Player Development Department has named Delmarva Shorebirds Pitcher Ofelky Peralta as the Organizational Pitcher of the Month for July, 2016. This is Peralta?s first recognition from the Orioles Player Development Department this season.

A 19-year old right handed pitcher from Banao, Dominican Republic, Peralta dazzled in four South Atlantic League starts in July. He finished the month with a 3-0 record and a 2.57 ERA over 21 innings. He gave up six runs on eight hits with nine walks and 21 strikeouts.

Peralta?s capstone outing of the season was shortened to five innings because of rain, but he threw the third no-hitter in Delmarva Shorebirds history on July 8th against the Hagerstown Suns. He struck out eight batters that night and allowed just one walk over his five frames. That outing followed a six-inning scoreless effort against Hagerstown on July 2nd. He allowed just one hit with seven strikeouts in his first appearance of the month.

Through 19 games this season, all of which were starts, Peralta?s opponents have only managed a .234 batting average against him. That mark is the fifth lowest in the league among qualified pitchers.

Ofelky Peralta is widely regarded as one of the Baltimore Orioles top prospects. MLB.com rated him as the 13th best prospect in the Orioles farm system, while Baseball America recognized Peralta as the 17th rated prospect in the organization.
