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. Mar 26 - 10:43 PM

Wily Peralta kept the Royals off the scoreboard in Saturday's Cactus League contest, scattering three hits over 5 2/3 frames.

Peralta struck out three and walked two over his 5 2/3 innings of work. This past season, the 27-year-old right-hander posted a 4.86 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 93/43 K/BB ratio over the course of 23 starts. While there's some promise in Peralta's arm, he has not put that promise to work at the major league level, at least not very often, posting ERA's north of 4.35 in three of the last four seasons.
Mar 25 - 6:52 PM

Wily Peralta pitched well in Sunday's start against Colombia in the World Baseball Classic, racking up six strikeouts over four innings of one-run ball.

The right-hander allowed just two hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Giovanny Urshela in the first inning. Peralta finished the 2016 season strong and has a secure spot in the Brewers' rotation heading into 2017.
Mar 12 - 5:56 PM

Wily Peralta walked two and gave up one hit but managed two scoreless innings Sunday in his Cactus League debut against the Dodgers.

A decent Winter Baseball Classic tuneup for the Dominican right-hander. Peralta surrendered a leadoff single to Andre Ethier in the top of the first and walked the next batter, Justin Turner, but the Dodgers ran into some outs in that opening frame and no damage was ultimately done on the scoreboard. Peralta was sharper in the second, issuing a one-out walk to Enrique Hernandez before promptly inducing an inning-ending doubleplay. The 27-year-old avoided arbitration with Milwaukee in January with a one-year, $4.275 million deal.
Feb 26 - 4:33 PM

Brewers and RHP Wily Peralta avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.275 million contract.

He's getting a sizable raise in his second year of arbitration eligibility even though he spent a chunk of 2016 in the minors. Peralta holds a career 4.18 ERA over parts of five seasons.
Jan 13 - 2:32 PM

Wily Peralta fired six shutout frames against the Rockies at Coors Field but did not factor into the decision in a game the Brewers eventually won 4-3 in extra innings.

He gave up five hits and didn't issue any free passes while striking out three in the quality start. All five hits were singles. He had a three run lead when he left the game but that was blown by the bullpen. He finishes the season with a 7-11 record and a 4.86 ERA in 127 2/3 innings. His 6.56 strikeouts and 3.03 walks per game are both slightly worse than league average.

Wily Peralta delivered six innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Brewers' 3-1 win over the Cubs.

Peralta gave up nine hits and a walk, but he was able to keep the Cubs from doing any major damage. The one run he allowed came on Tommy La Stella's RBI double to left field in the bottom of the sixth inning. Peralta has found new life in the second half, boasting a 3.26 ERA over his last eight starts. A meeting with the Reds is next.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 05:10:00 PM

Wily Peralta yielded three runs over six innings in Monday's loss to the Reds.

Peralta actually pitched very well in this one, as he was the victim of some batted ball luck by the Reds in the first inning when they plated three runs on four hits and a walk. The righty permitted only two hits across five scoreless frames the rest of the way. Peralta has pitched much better since rejoining the rotation last month, posting a 3.50 ERA over seven starts. He'll get the Cubs at Wrigley next.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 10:45:00 PM

Wily Peralta allowed four runs -- including three home runs -- over 7 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Peralta wasn't perfect, but he didn't need to be on a night the Brewers posted 12 runs against Cubs starter Jason Hammel and company. He gave up just six hits and a walk while striking out six in the win. Peralta has been surprisingly good since being recalled on August 9, lowering his ERA from 6.68 to 5.47 in those six starts. Peralta is 6-9 overall this year and will try to continue lowering that earned run average Sunday against the Cardinals.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 11:09:00 PM

Wily Peralta struck out 10 Cardinals hitters over seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday.

Peralta gave up a solo homer to Jedd Gyorko, something every National League starter has sworn to do this year, but he was otherwise stellar in a no-decision. Stellar is also a word that could describe Peralta's performance in general since being recalled in early August. In five starts, the 27-year-old has a 3.00 ERA with 27 strikeouts in 30 innings of work. The brilliance came basically out of nowhere, and there's no guarantee he'll keep it up -- this is a guy who had a 6.68 ERA in June -- but adventurous owners could do worse than Peralta right now. A start against the Cubs on Monday could shed some light on just how real this renaissance is.
Wed, Aug 31, 2016 12:03:00 AM

Wily Peralta allowed two runs over five innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Pirates.

Don't look now, but Peralta, who was left for dead in June after compiling a 6.68 ERA, has given up two runs or fewer in three of his four starts since being recalled earlier this month. Like in those starts, it wasn't pretty Thursday, but he did enough to keep the Brewers in the game. Peralta has gotten his ERA down to 5.87 through 17 starts, and he'll look to keep that positive momentum going heading into Tuesday's tilt with the Cardinals.
Fri, Aug 26, 2016 12:17:00 AM

Wily Peralta surrendered four runs on eight hits across six innings in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

He managed only one strikeout and issued two free passes in the game. His record falls to 5-9 with an ugly 6.00 ERA. He had been pitching well since being recalled from the minors two weeks ago but regressed tonight. He has a poor 54 to 33 strikeout to walk ratio in 84 innings. He is too risky to use in standard mixed leagues.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 12:40:00 AM

Wily Peralta tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Brewers' defeat of the Reds.

Peralta held the Cincinnati offense to one walk and four hits while striking out five. The one run he gave up came on a Joey Votto RBI double in the top of the sixth. Peralta has looked sharp now in two starts since returning from the minor leagues and may be a sneaky source of fantasy value for the stretch run. He'll get the Mariners on the road next.
Sun, Aug 14, 2016 05:11:00 PM

Wily Peralta pitched well but took the loss Tuesday, allowing two runs over six innings against the Braves.

Making his first major league start since June 11, Peralta gave up just four hits and walked three while striking out six. It was certainly unexpected after he entered the start with a 6.68 ERA in his first 13 starts with the club, and after he put up an equally unimpressive 6.31 ERA with Triple-A Colorado Springs. With Junior Guerra on the disabled list, the 27-year-old will get at least one more start, the next one coming Sunday against the Reds.
Tue, Aug 9, 2016 11:12:00 PM

Brewers recalled RHP Wily Peralta from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peralta will replace the injured Junior Guerra (elbow) in the Brewers' rotation. The 27-year-old had an ugly 6.68 ERA in 13 starts prior to being demoted in June and posted a 6.31 ERA over his 10 starts in Triple-A. He's not a fantasy option.
