Peralta struck out three batters over a scoreless inning of relief in Saturday's victory over the Giants.
Peralta was able to work around a couple one-out walks by eliminating any balls in play from the other three batters he faced in his frame. Peralta started eight games in the first half, but he came out of the bullpen in his last seven appearances, and figures to continue working in relief with the Brewers' rotation set coming out of the All-Star break.
Peralta replaced starter Jhoulys Chacin in the fifth inning of Monday's loss to the Pirates and threw 2.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen.
Peralta was on top of his game Monday, stranding three inherited runners by recording the final out of the fifth inning, hitting 97 on the radar gun and allowing just one runner to reach base. However, the extended outing, in which he threw 35 pitches, likely prevents him from starting for the Brewers anytime soon, as the rotation is already full and Gio Gonzalez (arm) is close to returning. That may not be the worst outcome for Peralta, though, considering he owns a 7.07 ERA over 35.2 innings in his eight starts this season, and a far better 1.84 ERA over 14.2 innings of relief. If the Brewers do want Peralta to continue working as a starter, they could decide to send him down when Gonzalez comes off the injured list.
Peralta (3-3) took the loss Tuesday as the Brewers fell 10-8 to the Astros, coughing up six runs on eight hits and a walk over four-plus innings while striking out seven.
Five of the eight hits by Houston went for extra bases, including homers by Tyler White and Yuli Gurriel. Peralta now has a 5.81 ERA and 59:14 K:BB through 48 innings, and with Jhoulys Chacin (back) nearing a return, he could be headed back to the bullpen.
Peralta (3-2) allowed one run on four hits and struck out nine over six innings Thursday in a win over the Marlins.
Peralta has struggled to get through the first inning of his starts so far this season, but he managed to breeze through the first Thursday and would go on to deliver a quality start. His only run allowed came in the sixth inning on a single to center field. The 23-year-old right-hander found success by pounding the strike zone (62 of 91 pitches were strikes) and by inducing seven groundouts. Peralta now owns a 5.11 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with a 52:13 K:BB over 44 innings this season, though he figures to be used as a reliever going forward.
Peralta has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Marlins.
Peralta pitched out of the bullpen in four of his last five appearances, but he will get a chance to start Thursday with fellow starters Jhoulys Chacin (back) and Gio Gonzalez (arm) on the injured list. Peralta owned an unsightly 8.31 ERA after his May 2 start, but he has been better since, posting a 2.20 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 18:3 K:BB in 16.1 innings over the previously mentioned five-game stretch.
Manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that Peralta is likely to make a spot start later this week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Brewers are being forced to shuffle their starting rotation with Gio Gonzalez (arm) and Jhoulys Chacin (back) landing on the injured list, and Peralta looks to be one of the beneficiaries. Monday's off day means the team won't need an additional starter until Saturday versus Pittsburgh, but the young righty could be slotted in earlier if Counsell wants to provide someone an extra day of rest. Peralta allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits over 3.1 innings during his last appearance Friday.
Peralta will be available out of the bullpen beginning Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
With Chase Anderson (finger) set to rejoin the rotation Saturday, Peralta will transition to a relief role. The right-handed Peralta has struggled with command and inconsistency this season, resulting in a 6.16 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 30.2 innings. Peralta could rejoin the rotation should an opening arise, but he'll offer length out of the bullpen for the Brewers for the time being.
Peralta didn't factor into the decision against the Phillies on Monday, giving up two runs (one earned) on seven hits over four innings, striking out five, and walking none as the Brewers fell 7-4.
Peralta only conceded one earned run, but wasn't efficient, as he needed 80 pitches to get through four frames before exiting the contest. The right-hander tossed an eight-inning, 11-strikeout gem against the Reds on April 3, but he's struggled on the whole so far this season, as he's sporting a 6.16 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP over 30.2 innings.
Peralta will start Monday's game against the Phillies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Peralta threw the ball well his last time out as a primary pitcher out of the bullpen, tossing five scoreless frames against Washington. The 22-year-old has struggled to get through the first inning at times throughout his young career, but skipper Craig Counsell will give him another shot in the series opener.
Peralta (2-1) allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five across five scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Nationals.
Peralta began his outing in the third inning after Adrian Houser worked through two effective innings as the opener. Peralta followed suit, allowing multiple baserunners in only one of his five innings of work. While he still surrendered two walks, he began 14 of the 20 batters he faced with a strike, a positive sign for the potential of improved control numbers moving forward. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, manager Craig Counsell hopes to employ an opener again for Peralta's next outing, which lines up to be at Philadelphia early next week.
Peralta is expected to pitch Tuesday against Washington but is unlikely to be the starter, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Brewers apparently no longer trust Peralta as a starter thanks to his 8.31 ERA, but he could be given a chance behind an opener. Peralta's pitch mix has always been odd for a starting pitcher, as he's thrown his fastball 78 percent of the time over the course of his career and used his changeup just three percent of the time. Avoiding facing hitters three times through the order could be what he needs to climb out of his current slump.
Manager Craig Counsell was noncommittal when asked whether Peralta will remain in the rotation, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. "We're going to have to have a conversation about that," the skipper said.
Peralta was tagged for nine runs (six earned) on eight hits (two homers) and three walks while striking out three across four innings Thursday against the Rockies -- raising his ERA and WHIP to 8.31 and 1.75, respectively -- and prompting the Brewers to contemplate his status in the starting rotation moving forward. The young right-hander has flashed his potential at times, evidenced by his 25 strikeouts in 21.2 innings, but until he can show more consistency, the Brewers may be forced to turn elsewhere. Should Peralta temporarily lose his rotation spot, Corbin Burnes, Adrian Houser and Aaron Wilkerson would all be options to take his spot.
The Brewers activated Peralta (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Rockies.
Peralta endured a rocky rehab outing at Double-A Biloxi over the weekend -- he gave up three runs on four hits and a walk in 4.2 innings -- but the Brewers were pleased enough with how his shoulder checked out to reinsert him into the rotation. He'll assume the rotation spot of Chase Anderson (finger), who experienced a blister and was scratched ahead of Wednesday's start before landing on the IL. Coming back from an injury of his own, Peralta may have his pitch count monitored carefully, though the Brewers may loosen the reins a bit given that they essentially had a bullpen game a day earlier.
Peralta (shoulder) will return from the injured list to start Thursday against the Rockies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Peralta will wind up missing two-and-a-half weeks with a shoulder issue. The 22-year-old had mixed results over his first four starts of the season, with one start lasting eight scoreless innings and the other three each lasting no more than 3.1 frames.
Peralta (shoulder) will rejoin the starting rotation this week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Peralta has been cleared to return after completing a minor-league rehab start with no issues, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out seven across 4.2 innings of work. It remains to be seen when Peralta will start and whose spot he'll take in the rotation. Prior to landing on the shelf, the 22-year-old compiled a 7.13 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB across four starts (17.2 innings).
Peralta (shoulder) will make a rehab appearance for Double-A Biloxi on Saturday, and if everything goes according to plan, he'll immediately return from the 10-day injured list, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Peralta tossed a bullpen session Monday and Wednesday, but the Brewers want to give him one more test before activating him from the injured list. Depending on how long his outing lasts Saturday, he figures to make his next start for Milwaukee either Tuesday or Wednesday against the Rockies, assuming he's cleared to return.
Peralta (shoulder) could return to the rotation next week against the Rockies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Peralta tossed a 15-pitch light bullpen Monday without any setbacks. The 22-year-old will throw a full bullpen Wednesday in St. Louis and could return to the rotation on the next homestand if all goes well.
Peralta (shoulder) threw a light bullpen Monday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The Brewers have yet to decide when Peralta will vacate the injured list, although Monday's throwing session was another small step in the right direction. He could return from the IL on Friday at the earliest.
Peralta (shoulder) felt good Saturday after throwing the day before, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The Brewers haven't officially given a timetable for Peralta, but he appears to be on track for a short stay on the injured list. He's eligible to return Friday against the Mets.
Peralta was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to a shoulder injury.
Peralta was pulled surprisingly early from Monday night's outing (3.1 innings), but there'd been no indication that he'd suffered any type of injury prior to this update. It remains to be seen whether he'll be able to return following the 10-day minimum.
