MLB: Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

David Peralta is set to rejoin the Diamonbacks, as the team reinstated him from the 15-day disabled list. He missed 20 games since being placed on the DL on May 15. Now, with him returning, the D-Backs are going to have to figure out what to do with their outfield.

Peralta will join Michael Bourn, Brandon Drury, Chris Owings, Rickie Weeks Jr. and Yasmany Tomas in the outfield, and manager Chip Hale is going to have to find playing time for all of them. One thing going for Hale is the fact that both Drury and Owings are infielders by trade, and can go there if needed, and Peralta can play center. That will allow Hale to mix-and-match as best as he can to keep his guys both fresh and in rhythm.
