As a player, Peláez made his debut with Club América in 1985, before moving to Necaxa in 1987 and becoming a mainstay for the club, making over 300 appearances and scoring 138 goals, making him the club's all-time leading goalscorer. He had a second stint with América in 1997, and transferred a year later to arch-rivals Guadalajara before retiring in 2000. Peláez also represented the Mexico national team at the 1998 FIFA World Cup.

Following his retirement, Peláez became a commentator for Televisa Deportes. In November 2011 he became Sporting President for Club América. From October 2013 to July 2014 he was the Sporting Director of the Mexico national team, returning to América immediately following the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. He left his position as sporting president in April 2017.
