Breaking: Dave McKay Confirm Huge Boost With The Return of Another Top Star

Geraldo Perdomo will be returning for the Arizona Diamondbacks’ series opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, per John Gambadoro of AZSports. The D-backs will counter, but Eugenio Suarez won’t be involved, according to Gambadoro.
Since April 3rd, Perdomo has not been in the starting lineup because of surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Before being sent to the IL, the 24-year-old appeared in just seven games this season.

Perdomo scored 71 runs, recorded a.712 OPS, and became the first player in his career to reach 100 hits last year. He went to his first All-Star game as well.

Veteran Kevin Newman has mostly filled in for Perdomo. Before the current season, Newman was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today has speculated that the Diamondbacks may bench third baseman Eugenio Suarez and move Newman to the hot corner, with Perdomo taking over as the starting shortstop.

Rehab assignment: Perdomo recently participated in four games with the Reno Aces. He was 2-for-14 at the plate in those games, but he did not record a strikeout.

Tuesday at Chase Field, the first pitch for Arizona’s series opener versus the Angels is scheduled for 6:40 PM. The Diamondbacks’ expected starter is Jordan Montgomery. Montgomery has had a difficult season at home, going 5 starts with an 8.46 ERA.
