Wily Peralta (calf) threw a hitless inning on Tuesday with Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Peralta issued a walk and allowed an unearned run, but it was a mostly encouraging outing from the 28-year-old right-hander, who was lit up for six runs -- five earned -- while recording only one out in his last rehab appearance with Colorado Springs back on July 8. Peralta has been on the disabled list since June 20 with a right calf strain. There is no definitive timetable for his return to the Brewers' bullpen. Jul 18 - 6:15 PM

Wily Peralta (calf) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday night with Triple-A Buffalo.

Peralta could be ready to rejoin the Brewers' bullpen right after the All-Star break, following a couple of minor league rehab outings. The 28-year-old right-hander has been on the disabled list since June 20 because of a right calf strain. He owns a highly disappointing 7.21 ERA through eight starts and nine relief appearances this season with Milwaukee.
Jul 5 - 2:08 PM

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a right calf strain.

There is no current timetable for Peralta's return. Prior to suffering the calf strain, the 28-year-old right-hander had been pitching to an unpalatable 7.21 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 17 appearances (eight starts). The Brew Crew shifted him over to the bullpen in mid-May.
Jun 21 - 7:49 PM

Brewers general manager David Stearns said that the team is not giving up on Wily Peralta as a reliever despite his recent struggles.

Peralta has given up runs in each of his last six appearances and owns a rough 6.66 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 52 2/3 innings. The Brewers will continue to give him opportunities, but to this point, the bullpen experiment has not been a smooth one.
Jun 14 - 4:17 PM

Wily Peralta picked up a win in his first appearance out of the bullpen on Friday, firing two scoreless innings against the Cubs.

Peralta was called upon in the seventh inning with the Brewers leading 6-3 and he came out firing, striking out five in his two frames while walking one. The right-hander looks like he could be a formidable weapon out of the bullpen and could be worth a look in mixed leagues if he works his way into a setup role.
May 19 - 7:56 PM

Wily Peralta has been moved to the bullpen.

Peralta was rocked for seven runs by the Mets in his last start and holds a cringe-inducing 6.08 ERA and 1.55 WHIP across eight starts (40 innings). Manager Craig Counsell said that he could potentially be used as an emergency arm out of the pen on Thursday and should be available in-full for this weekend's series against the Cubs. The team will name a starter for his rotation spot on Thursday.
May 17 - 8:53 PM

Wily Peralta was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings.

The right-hander walked one and struck out one on the afternoon. Michael Conforto slugged a solo homer off of him in the first inning while he and Neil Walker each delivered two-run doubles in the fifth inning. Peralta will carry a predictably poor 6.08 ERA and 1.55 WHIP into Friday's start against the Cubs in Chicago.
May 14 - 6:32 PM

Wily Peralta was charged with four runs over 4 1/3 frames in Tuesday’s 11-7 win over the Red Sox.

Peralta settled in for a while after allowing a Mookie Betts homer to lead off the game, but he ran into more trouble in the fifth, when the Red Sox chased him with an infield single and a couple doubles with one out. A fourth run was added to his ledger after an inherited runner scored. Peralta simply has too many outings like this in order to be trusted in fantasy leagues. He faces the Mets on Sunday.
May 10 - 1:04 AM

Wily Peralta gave up two runs while whiffing seven batters over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Cardinals.

He was inefficient as Peralta often is, throwing 99 pitches over his 5 1/3 frames. The right-hander exited with the game scoreless, though, before Jacob Barnes let a pair of inherited runners score. It was an improvement over his last couple outings, but Peralta will take a 4.88 ERA into Pittsburgh this weekend.
May 3 - 12:42 AM

Wily Peralta allowed four earned runs over five innings Wednesday in a win over the Reds.

Peralta was backed by five first-inning runs (and nine runs total) from the Milwaukee offense. He walked two and surrendered eight hits, including four solo home runs. The right-hander got off to a nice start this season and currently stands 4-1, but he's been roughed up in two straight outings against divisional opponents. A road matchup against the Cardinals is next.
Apr 26 - 4:41 PM

Wily Peralta was knocked around for six runs in four innings Friday against the Cardinals.

Peralta came into Friday’s outing with a 2.65 ERA through three starts, but he just didn’t have it in this one. Adam Wainwright did most of the damage against him, connecting for a two-run homer in the third and a two-run single in a four-run fourth. Peralta didn’t strike out any of the 20 batters he faced and had just one strikeout in 23 batters faced last time out. Some skepticism is warranted in mixed leagues right now.
Apr 22 - 1:23 AM

Wily Peralta picked up his third victory of the young season on Sunday, limiting the Reds to two runs on three hits over his six innings of work.

The right-hander unexpectedly struck out only one batter on the afternoon while walking three. The only blemish on his day was a two-run blast off the bat of Eugenio Suarez in the fourth inning. Peralta was tremendous in the second half of 2016 and through Cactus League play, and he hasn't missed a beat in 2017, compiling a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP while winning each of his first three starts. At this point, he should at least be owned in most mixed leagues.
Apr 16 - 4:23 PM

Wily Peralta was charged with three runs over six innings of work in Tuesday’s 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Peralta walked four batters, which elevated his pitch count to 112 over six frames, but he also struck out seven and gave up only five hits. It’s been a nice start to the season for the right-hander after he went five scoreless versus the Rockies in his first outing. Peralta takes on the Reds in Cincinnati on Sunday.
Apr 12 - 12:00 AM

Wily Peralta tossed five scoreless innings and struck out five to earn a win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Peralta averaged 96 mph with his fastball tonight and was able to get strikes with his slider. He still doesn't have a big weapon to use against left-handers, which is why we've been skeptical about him as a starter. We'll want to see more before recommending him for fantasy purposes.
Apr 6 - 12:32 AM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers have recently scouted Wily Peralta and may have interest in acquiring the right-hander.

The Rangers are in the market for upgrades to their starting rotation, preferably one that would be under team control for several seasons, and Peralta fits the bill. The 27-year-old right-hander finished the 2016 season strong and has pitched well in Cactus League play this spring. He's in line to earn $4.28 million in 2017 and is under team control through the 2021 season.
