Perdomo was optioned to the Brewers' alternate training site Sunday.
The 26-year-old began the season on the injured list and was activated Aug. 11, but he struggled in three appearances with six runs allowed over 2.2 innings. Perdomo did record five strikeouts, but the seven walks were too much to overcome. He could rejoin the team later in the year if he can illustrate improved command at the alternate site.
Perdomo (illness) was activated from the injured list Thursday.
Perdomo is ready to make his big-league debut after a positive COVID-19 test prior to camp set him back to start the season. The southpaw reached Triple-A for the first time in 2019 and posted a 5.17 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 86:38 K:BB across 54 innings. Eric Lauer was sent to the team's alternate camp site in a corresponding move.
Perdomo (illness) was placed on the injured list Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
While the Brewers didn't specify a reason for the transaction, Perdomo tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the start of camp, which is presumably related to this move. It's unclear when he's expected to get back on the field.
Perdomo (illness) was added to the Brewers' 60-man roster Thursday.
Perdomo tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the start of the Brewers' camp last week, but he'll get a chance to work at the team's alternate training site once he recovers. It's unclear whether the left-hander is symptomatic, but under MLB protocol, he'll need to undergo two negative tests prior to joining the team.
Manager Craig Counsell revealed Monday that Perdomo tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the start of the Brewers' summer camp last week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Perdomo is currently asymptomatic, but he'll need to self-isolate and pass two COVID-19 tests before he's allowed to join the team. Though he was one of only four players on Milwaukee's 40-man roster who wasn't included in the initial club's 60-man roster pool released June 29, Perdomo was expected to report to the Brewers' alternative training site for summer camp.
Perdomo was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old was added to the 40-man roster in November and was in big-league camp prior to the suspension of spring training, but it appears he'll be beginning another season in the minors. Perdomo spent most of 2019 at San Antonio and posted a 5.17 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 86:38 K:BB across 54 frames.
Perdomo has appeared in four games this spring and has thrown four scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and posting a 10:2 K:BB.
Perdomo entered spring training with an outside shot at breaking camp with the big club, but he has given his chances a boost with a stellar showing to date. It's possible there is still no space for him in the bullpen, but even if his campaign opens in the minors, he will have a chance to make his big-league debut at some point in 2020 after being added to the 40-man roster over the offseason.
Perdomo's contract was selected by the Brewers on Saturday.
The 25-year-old had some struggles in limiting run production in the minors last season, recording a 4.28 ERA, but he also amassed a 107:46 K:BB over 69.1 innings in the minors. Perdomo's addition to the 40-man roster signals that he could make his major-league debut relatively soon, but he'd likely need to bring his ERA down prior to joining the Brewers' pitching staff.
Perdomo signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Monday.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training, though he figures to open the season in the minors seeing as he hasn't pitched above High-A. Perdomo, a 24-year-old left-hander, spent the past two seasons with High-A Dunedin, posting a combined 3.67 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 9.6 K/9 across 154.2 innings. While he still hasn't pitched above High-A entering his age-25 season, Perdomo showed promise by striking out 100 batters across 79.1 innings in his repeat season with Dunedin in 2018.
