Peralta was placed on the paternity list Thursday. Peralta has pitched well recently as he's allowed just one run over his last five appearances while earning two wins during that time. He'll take a few days off after the birth of his child. Players usually spend approximately three days on the paternity list, so it's unclear whether he'll return during the regular season. However, he could be available out of the bullpen if the Brewers qualify for the postseason. Left-hander Eric Lauer was recalled in a corresponding move.
Peralta (3-1) pitched two perfect innings and struck out three to earn the win in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals. Peralta followed opener Brent Suter in the contest. The 24-year-old Peralta was particularly impressive in the fifth inning, striking out the side on 14 pitches. He's posted a 3.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB across 25.2 innings this season. Peralta also has two holds in 13 appearances.
Peralta (2-1) picked up the win in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, allowing one unearned run on one hit while pitching the eighth inning. Tyler O'Neill started the inning on second base and later came around to score on Tommy Edman's two-out single. Peralta was not charged with an earned run and the Brewers rallied for a pair of runs in the bottom half of the inning to give him his second win of the season. The right-hander holds a 3.80 ERA across 23.2 innings on the campaign.
Peralta threw 1.2 scoreless innings in Saturday's loss to Cleveland. He did not allow a hit, struck out four batters and walked three. Peralta had some command issues Saturday, but he was able to prevent the opponent from putting any runs on the scoreboard. Peralta has allowed multiple runs on four separate occasions this season, but since giving up a season-high four tallies in his first outing he has posted a 3.06 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 35:8 K:BB in 17.2 innings over nine relief appearances.
Peralta (1-1) picked up the win in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Cubs, allowing only one hit over two scoreless innings of relief while striking out five. Entering the game in the fifth inning with the bases loaded and one out, Peralta needed only eight pitches to strike out Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber to end the Chicago rally. A three-run blast by Christian Yelich in the top of the sixth then made Peralta the winner. The right-hander has been incredible in long relief lately, reeling off nine shutout innings with an absurd 19:2 K:BB over his last three appearances, but whether that run of dominance will encourage the Brewers to give him another look in the rotation remains to be seen.
