Peralta (hip) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday.
Peralta had been sidelined since mid-June with a strained right hip flexor. He recorded an unremarkable 5.96 ERA in 22.2 innings prior to suffering the injury. Josh VanMeter was optioned to Triple-A Louisville over the All-Star break in a corresponding move.
Peralta (hip) will throw a rehab inning for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peralta has been out with a strained hip flexor since mid-June. He could be available soon after the All-Star break if all goes well.
Peralta (hip) had a successful bullpen session prior to Thursday's game against the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peralta landed on the 10-day injured list June 15 with a right hip flexor strain and has now thrown two bullpen sessions this week. The 27-year-old will likely require a rehab stint before returning to the majors, but he could still rejoin the Reds shortly after the All-Star break.
Peralta (hip) had a good bullpen session Tuesday and is slated to pitch another Friday, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports. "It went well," manager David Bell said prior to Wednesday's game. "Another one tentatively scheduled for Friday, but everything went well."
Peralta is already eligible to return from the IL, but his timetable won't be determined until after Friday's session.
Peralta was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hip flexor strain.
The injury perhaps partially explains Peralta's poor outing Friday against the Rangers, when he allowed three runs on two hits and two walks while recording just two outs. Outfielder Phillip Ervin was called up in a corresponding move.
Peralta was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
Peralta was demoted to Triple-A on Tuesday but can make a quick return to the majors with Robert Stephenson (neck) heading to the injured list. Peralta has a 4.87 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB over 20.1 innings this season.
Peralta was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peralta has struggled to a 4.87 ERA through 20.1 innings this season, so he'll head to the minor leagues in an attempt to find his groove. Lucas Sims was recalled in a corresponding move and will start Tuesday evening against Pittsburgh.
Peralta struck out the side in his one inning pitched Tuesday night against the Cubs.
With the outing Peralta's ERA dropped to 3.14 and his WHIP went down to 1.12, and he has a 13:5 K:BB over 14.1 innings. He's usually pitching when the Reds are trailing, as he did Tuesday, so he has no saves and only one hold.
Peralta hasn't allowed an earned run in eight appearances so far this season, covering 7.1 innings. He has five strikeouts and three walks.
Due to the improvement of Amir Garrett and Robert Stephenson, Peralta hasn't pitched in too many high-leverage situations, and he has no decisions, holds or blown saves yet this season.
The Reds informed Peralta on Tuesday that he would be included on the Opening Day roster, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peralta and Robert Stephenson claimed the final two available spots in the bullpen after the Reds reassigned Matt Wisler to the minors. The 27-year-old lefty has made 138 appearances in relief for Cincinnati over the past three seasons, submitting a 4.68 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 7.1 K/9.
Peralta threw a scoreless inning in Thursday's spring training game against the Dodgers, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out one.
In four big league outings this spring, Peralta hasn't allowed a run over four innings, striking out three while giving up three hits and a walk. He's a likely bet to make the Reds' Opening Day roster in the bullpen as one of their top two lefties.
Peralta was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
The 27-year-old lefty has a 6.14 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 29.1 innings (37 appearances) out of the big-league bullpen this season. He should work as a lefty specialist in lower-leverage spots.
Peralta was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday.
Peralta has been unable to replicate his 2017 form (3.64 ERA across 64.2 frames), scuffling to an unsightly 6.14 ERA across 29.1 innings this season. His struggles culminated in blowup against the Tigers on Tuesday in which he allowed five runs on four hits and a walk without recording an out. The lefty will now try to sort things out in the minors before returning to the big-league bullpen sometime later in the summer. Kyle Crockett was promoted from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding roster move.
Peralta gave up a home run to the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez in Tuesday's loss and allowed three runs overall, raising his ERA to 4.94 in the process.
While this was the first homer allowed by Peralta in 2018, he has given up 27 hits and 23 walks in 27.1 innings so far. The fact that this was his first homer allowed is the only thing keeping his ERA from stratospheric levels. Though he has five holds on the season, he's been used less frequently in high-leverage situations lately.
Peralta allowed three runs on a hit and two walks while retiring two batters in Monday's loss to the Brewers.
Perversely, he also managed to pick up his second hold of the season -- only because he exited the game with two runners on and the Reds still leading, only to see his inherited runners score. His ERA climbed to 4.40 with the outing.
Peralta threw two perfect innings Saturday against the Pirates and picked up the win when the Reds rallied in the eighth inning.
Peralta has thrown four scoreless innings to start the season, including the two Saturday that included three strikeouts. He got off to a great start last year but wilted a bit over the second half due to overuse. On its surface, the Reds' rotation looks a little better this season, so perhaps their key relievers won't be as taxed.
Peralta snagged his first hold of the year in Monday's win over the Cubs, but needed some help from closer Raisel Iglesias to get out of the eighth inning.
Peralta struck out the first two batters he faced, but then allowed a walk to Ben Zobrist and a single to Ian Happ before getting lifted for Iglesias. He has already pitched in three of the Reds' first four games, which is a concern given how his performance declined after heavy early use last year.
Peralta left Saturday's game in the eighth inning with what appeared to be a right hip injury, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Peralta will likely be unavailable Sunday and will undergo further evaluation when the team returns to Cincinnati on Monday. It was clear something wasn't quite right Saturday when Peralta allowed four earned runs and only recorded one out, and it now seems as if the problem might have been something physical. There hadn't been much fantasy appeal here to start with, though Peralta has collected a career-best 13 holds this season. Consider the reliever day-to-day.
Peralta (3-4) gave up three runs on four hits while recording just two outs against the Cubs on Tuesday, sticking him in the loss column.
He's been one of the bright spots in Cincy's bullpen this year, but Peralta has had his stats damaged by a few blowups like this one. The 26-year-old lefty can't be expected to provide much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues that count holds.
Peralta has struck out 38 in 40.2 innings with an ERA of 3.10 for the Reds this year.
The young reliever has been successful keeping batters off base with a low WHIP of 0.93, but he's also given up five long balls. The velocity is high, a good indicator that Peralta's stats, specifically strikeouts, should improve as he continues to get experience in the majors.
