He still came stateside in 2013, going 0-3 with a 7.88 ERA for the Bristol White Sox. He split 2014 between the AZL White Sox (4-2, Sv, 3.55) and Great Falls Voyagers (0-1, 3.68); his control was improving as he walked 9 in 38 innings in the Arizona League. He split '15 between the AZL White Sox (1-1, 5.40 in 2 G) and Kannapolis Intimidators (4-8, 6.04 in 21 G). He tied for 7th in the South Atlantic League with 79 runs allowed.

The right-hander was with Kannapolis (1-4, Sv, 3.82 in 24 G) and the Winston-Salem Dash (0-2, 4 Sv, 3.57 in 16 G) in 2016 as well as in 2017 (0-2, 4.97 in 19 G for the Dash; 1-0, Sv, 3.86 in 14 for the Intimidators). He spent a third year with the same two clubs, going 1-0 with a 2.51 ERA in 8 games for the 2018 Kannapolis team and with a save and a 6.00 ERA for Winston-Salem. Let go by the ChiSox, he was with the Jersey Wise Guys in 2020 (0-1, 4.73 in 9 G). He pitched for two Colombian League teams in 2022-2023, then had a save and a 3.00 ERA in 3 outings in the 2023 Caribbean Series.

Peralta got a no-decision. He also started versus Mexico (Mexico's lone loss) and pitched 3 1/3 IP (2 H, 2 BB, 2 K, 2 R, 2 ER); Rosario again took over. He tied for the Games' lead in starts. [2]
