Player Outlook
The right-hander was limited to 18 outings (17 starts) in 2022 due to lat and shoulder injuries, but he was able to stay healthy in 2023 and set career highs in starts (30) and innings (165.2). Freddy Peralta was one of the best strikeout pitchers in the league, with his 30.9 percent strikeout rate ranking fourth, and his .211 batting average against was also elite. However, a 1.4 HR/9 (double his 2022 figure) helped lead to a less impressive 3.86 ERA, though his 1.12 WHIP and 7.9 percent walk rate were also strong. A 16 percent HR/FB ratio was well above his career average entering the season, which could indicate some incoming positive regression after giving up 26 homers. Peralta's career-high workload sets him up for a potential ace-level campaign in 2024, especially if he's able to cut down the long balls closer to his career average of 1.1 HR/9.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Bounces back against Marlins

    Peralta (3-3) took the loss Wednesday against Miami, allowing one run on four hits and a walk across seven innings. He struck out seven. Peralta was locked into a pitcher's duel with Jesus Luzardo, with a leadoff home run by Jazz Chisholm in the first inning being enough to push Peralta into the loss column. Still, fantasy managers saw the dominant version of Peralta that garnered early Cy Young consideration before his ERA ballooned from 1.90 on April 19 to 4.17 before Wednesday's outing. Through the ups and downs, Peralta's strikeout production has maintained, with 71 K's across 56.2 innings on the year. The 28-year-old is lined up to pitch Monday against the Cubs at American Family Field.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Coughs up five runs

    Peralta (3-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against Houston. All five runs against Peralta came on Houston home runs; Jake Meyers knocked a two-run shot in the second inning followed by Jeremy Pena's three-run blast in the fifth. Peralta forced 13 whiffs -- including seven with his slider -- and has generated double-digit swinging strikes in each of his nine starts this season. After beginning the year with a 1.90 ERA through 23.2 frames, he's posted an ugly 6.23 ERA over his last five outings. Peralta's next start is lined up to be in Miami next week.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Strikes out eight in quality start

    Peralta allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings in a no-decision versus the Cardinals on Saturday. Peralta threw 71 of 100 pitches for strikes in his return from a five-game suspension. The right-hander earned his first quality start in four outings and his fourth of the year, though he's yet to pitch past the sixth inning this season. He's at a solid 3.63 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP and 58:16 K:BB over 44.2 innings through eight starts. Peralta's next start is projected to be on the road in Houston.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Back from suspension Saturday

    Peralta was reinstated from his five-game suspension and will start Saturday's game against the Cardinals in Milwaukee. Peralta was handed the five-game ban for throwing at the Rays' Jose Siri in an April 30 game, but he initially appealed the suspension and made his next turn through the rotation this past Sunday against the Cubs. He dropped his appeal a day later and began serving the ban, which concluded Friday. Peralta was presumably able to stay on his usual between-starts throwing regimen while he was suspended, so he shouldn't face any restrictions with his pitch count as he returns to the rubber Saturday.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Drops appeal, serving five-game ban

    Peralta dropped his appeal of a five-game suspension and will be begin serving the ban Monday. Peralta was handed the suspension for intentionally throwing at the Rays' Jose Siri in an 8-2 win over Tampa Bay last Tuesday. The right-hander was ejected from that contest, but after appealing the five-game ban, Peralta took the hill Sunday on normal rest and was dealt the loss in the Brewers' series finale with the Cubs. With Peralta ending his appeal, he won't be able to make his next turn through the rotation that would have fallen Friday versus the Cardinals, though he could make his next start as soon as Saturday. The Brewers are likely to either call up Robert Gasser from Triple-A Nashville to start Friday, or the team will treat Friday's contest as a bullpen day.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Served first loss

    Peralta (3-1) allowed three runs on three hits and six walks over five innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Cubs. Despite the command issues all afternoon, Peralta kept the Cubs off the board until coughing up three runs in the fifth inning. He took his first loss of the year and has now failed to complete six frames in three straight outings. During that stretch, he's posted a 6.00 ERA with a 17:11 K:BB. Peralta forced 13 whiffs Sunday but threw just 51 of 97 pitches for strikes. His season ERA climbed to 3.49 through 38.2 frames. As of now, it's unclear when Peralta will make his next start, as the decision on his pending suspension still needs to be determined.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: May drop appeal after start

    Peralta implied that he could drop his appeal of a five-game suspension following his start Sunday against the Cubs, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Peralta was handed the ban Wednesday after he was deemed to have intentionally thrown at Rays outfielder Jose Siri in Tuesday's 8-2 win. The right-hander was ejected from the game immediately after hitting Siri, who then exchanged punches with Brewers reliever Abner Uribe following his next plate appearance in the eighth inning, inciting a benches-clearing brawl. Peralta seemingly appealed the suspension to give the Brewers more time to prepare for his absence, as it doesn't sound as though he's expecting a reduction in his five-game ban following the appeal process. With that in mind, fantasy managers should prepare for Peralta to have his next turn through the rotation skipped, with Milwaukee preparing to turn to a spot starter Friday in St. Louis. Robert Gasser is scheduled to pitch Sunday for Triple-A Nashville and could be called up to fill the void for Peralta on Friday, though manager Pat Murphy also floated the possibility of that game being treated as a bullpen day, per Hogg.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Gets five-game ban, will appeal

    Peralta was suspended five games by Major League Baseball on Wednesday for intentionally throwing at the Rays' Jose Siri in Tuesday's 8-2 win, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He'll appeal the suspension. The right-hander was ejected from Tuesday's contest after the umpiring crew concluded that Peralta threw at Siri intentionally one plate appearance after Siri had hit a home run. Since Peralta is appealing the suspension, he should be able to make his next scheduled start on Sunday against the Cubs, if the appeal process isn't completed before then.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Strikes out seven before ejection

    Peralta (3-0) earned the win Tuesday against Tampa Bay, allowing two earned runs on one hit while striking out seven batters across 5.1 innings. Peralta was fantastic again Tuesday, needing just 66 pitches to get through 5.1 innings while only allowing one hit -- a Jose Siri home run. The 27-year-old pitcher wasn't showing any signs of slowing down on the mound, but his start came to an abrupt and controversial end when he hit Siri with a pitch in the sixth inning. The umpires deemed the HBP an intentional act, leading to Peralta's ejection from the game. Despite being tossed, Tuesday's outing was a strong bounce-back performance from his five-run showing Thursday against Pittsburgh. He has now struck out 45 batters in 33.2 innings this year and will carry a 3.21 ERA and 0.86 WHIP into his next start -- currently projected for Monday in Kansas City.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Fires six shutout innings

    Peralta allowed four hits and two walks over six scoreless frames in a no-decision Friday. He struck out seven in the win over St. Louis. Peralta was in line for his third win of the year before the Cardinals tied the game in the bottom of the ninth inning. The 27-year-old has been terrific to begin the 2024 campaign, registering a 1.90 ERA with a 33:4 K:BB over 23.2 frames. He's forced double-digit whiffs in each of his four starts this season, including 13 on Friday. Peralta is lined up to start in Pittsburgh next week.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Brewers-Reds postponed Thursday

    Peralta and the Brewers won't face the Reds on Thursday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in CIncinnati. The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Aug. 30. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers will push each of their starting pitchers back one day in the pitching schedule as a result of the postponement, so Peralta will take the hill for Friday's series opener in Baltimore.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Falls apart late

    Peralta yielded three runs on four hits and a walk over 5.2 innings and did not factor in the decision Friday. He struck out seven during a win over Seattle. Peralta looked terrific through five shutout frames, allowing just three Mariners to reach base during that stretch. He was then tagged with three runs in the sixth inning and wasn't able to record a quality start. The 27-year-old forced seven whiffs with his slider and 13 total. Peralta has a 3.09 ERA with an impressive 15:2 K:BB through 11.2 frames. He's currently lined up to start in Cincinnati next week.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Shines on Opening Day

    Peralta (1-0) earned the win Friday against the Mets, surrendering just one hit -- a solo home run -- while striking out eight batters and walking one through six innings. The 27-year-old righty was brilliant in his first career Opening Day start, and a solo shot by Starling Marte in the second inning ended up being the Mets' only hit of the game. After the next batter, DJ Stewart, reached base on a walk, Peralta responded by retiring 13 consecutive batters. He will have some big shoes to fill as the Brewers' ace this year with Corbin Burnes now in Baltimore and Brandon Woodruff (shoulder) out for the season, but Thursday's outing may have been a good sign of what's to come this year. Peralta's next start will likely come Wednesday against the Twins in Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Mets-Brewers opener postponed

    Peralta and the Brewers won't face the Mets on Thursday after the game was postponed due to rain being in the forecast at Citi Field. The season opener for both teams will be pushed back to Friday, which had been an off day for the three-game Brewers-Mets series. Peralta will presumably be moved one day back in the schedule to start Friday's game, with the Mets set to counter with Jose Quintana.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Starting Opening Day

    Peralta has been named the Brewers' Opening Day starter, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. With Corbin Burnes now in Baltimore, the Opening Day duties for the Brewers were inevitably going to fall to Peralta. The 27-year-old held a 3.86 ERA and 210:54 K:BB over 165.2 innings covering 30 starts for Milwaukee in 2023. He'll be going up against the Mets' Jose Quintana on March 28.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Officially starting Game 2

    Peralta will start Game 2 of the Brewers' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. With Brandon Woodruff nursing a shoulder injury and out indefinitely, Peralta will be bumped up to start Wednesday. Peralta put up a 3.38 ERA and 0.83 WHIP through 26.2 innings across his final five starts of the regular season, though he surrendered four runs in just three frames during his most recent outing.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Resting on final turn

    Peralta will not pitch this weekend against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Peralta appeared lined up for Saturday's game versus Chicago, but the NL Central-champion Brewers will instead give him extended rest leading into the playoffs. The 27-year-old right-hander finishes with a 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 210:54 K:BB in 165.2 regular-season innings.

  • Brewers' Freddy Peralta: Mashed in loss

    Peralta (12-10) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits and no walks over three innings against Miami. He struck out four. The Marlins peppered Peralta for nine hits, equaling his season high last given up April 15 against San Diego. The results Sunday were highly unusual as the Brewers starting pitcher had produced a 2.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 99:16 K:BB over 70.2 innings in the second half before this outing. Perhaps the Marlins were able to take advantage of Peralta's average fastball velocity sitting at 93.5 mph, down a tick from its normal 94.5 mph. He'll look to bounce back in his final start of the season, currently scheduled to be at home against the Cubs.

Peralta's now allowed just one run in three of his last four starts while working to a 1.89 ERA in his last eight outings (47.2 innings). However, Willson Contreras' solo home run proved enough to stick Peralta with the loss Monday in a 1-0 defeat. Overall, the 27-year-old right-hander sports a 3.71 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and 206:54 K:BB across 29 starts (162.2 innings) this season. Peralta's currently lined up for a road matchup with the Marlins this weekend in his next outing.

The 27-year-old is tentatively scheduled to make his next start in St. Louis against the Cardinals early next week.
