Brewers optioned RHP Wily Peralta to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Peralta started on Opening Day for the Brew Crew, but his demotion comes as no surprise after he put up a 6.68 ERA over 13 starts. Matt Garza (shoulder) will take his spot in the Milwaukee rotation. Jun 12 - 11:39 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell won't commit to Wily Peralta making his next start.

"We're going to assess over the next few days," said Counsell. Peralta was yanked after only throwing 86 pitches in Saturday's blowout loss to Philadelphia. With Matt Garza coming off the disabled list next week, Peralta's rotation spot could be in jeopardy. The Brewers' Opening Day starter owns the highest ERA of any starting pitcher in baseball (6.68) and the second-highest WHIP (1.88). Counsell insisted that Peralta is fine physically. Regardless of Counsell's decision, fantasy owners should have abandoned Peralta a long time ago.

Wily Peralta yielded three earned runs over five inning Saturday in the Brewers' defeat of the Mets.

Peralta gave up homers to Asdrubal Cabrera and Curtis Granderson, but the right-hander slugged a two-run shot of his own in the bottom of the fourth inning and moved to 4-7 on the season. He walked one, struck out four, and surrendered five hits. Peralta will carry a 6.68 ERA into his next start on the road against the Dodgers.
Jun 11 - 7:21 PM

Wily Peralta was hammered for six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks over 4 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Phillies.

Another brutal outing for the 27-year-old right-hander, who now holds a 6.79 ERA and 1.93 WHIP in 61 innings (12 starts) this season. Any other club might have pulled the plug already, but the rebuilding Brewers will probably just keep running Peralta out there. He's lined up to face the Mets at home next.
Jun 5 - 4:46 PM

Wily Peralta allowed three runs on nine hits over five innings in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The final score was lopsided, but Peralta actually did his best to keep the Brewers in the game. Alas, he took his sixth loss while improving his ERA to 6.51. You read that correctly. Peralta has been better in his past three starts, allowing three runs or fewer in each, and he'll look to continue trending in the right direction Sunday against the Phillies.
May 31 - 11:42 PM

Wily Peralta held the Braves to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win Thursday.

In what has been typical Peralta fashion this year, even in victory he wasn't overly impressive, allowing seven hits and walking two on the night. The Braves' offense is underwhelming enough to make it work, though, earning the right-hander his third win of the year. Peralta owns a 6.62 ERA and 1.90 WHIP through 10 starts and isn't showing many signs of improvement. The Cardinals offense gets the next shot at the 27-year-old when the teams meet up Tuesday.
May 27 - 12:00 AM

Wily Peralta surrendered three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Peralta held the Mets to just one run over the first five innings before giving up a go-ahead two-run homer to Michael Conforto in the sixth. He struck out six and walked a pair in the loss and now sits at 2-5 with a 6.99 ERA on the year. He figures to stick in the rotation for now, but fantasy owners should obviously stay far away at this point.
May 20 - 9:58 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that Wily Peralta will not be losing his rotation spot.

Not this turn, anyway. Peralta was lit up for six runs over just 4 2/3 innings Sunday by the light-hitting Padres and he holds a brutal 7.30 ERA and 1.99 WHIP through eight starts this season. If the Brewers had a better option, they'd have probably tried it already.
May 17 - 5:42 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Saturday's game that the team will discuss whether to replace Wily Peralta in the rotation.

Peralta allowed six runs over 4 2/3 innings against the Padres and now holds an ugly 7.30 ERA and 1.99 WHIP through eight starts. "We'll talk about it," Counsell said. "We have to look at the big picture of everything. It's certainly got to be better." It's unclear who the Brewers might turn to as Peralta's potential replacement, but Josh Hader has been dominant at Double-A Biloxi.
May 15 - 1:09 PM

Wily Peralta struggled Saturday, allowing six runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Padres.

Peralta served up two homers among the Padres' eight hits, and he also walked three in the largely ineffective outing. He had been better, relatively, in recent starts after a miserable first few weeks of the season, but "better" is only good for a 7.30 ERA and 1.99 WHIP through eight starts. The Brewers seem resolved to let the 27-year-old work through his issues every fifth day, so Peralta will next take the mound Friday at the Mets.
May 15 - 12:19 AM

Wily Peralta wasn't terribly sharp but managed to hold the Marlins to two runs over six frames in Monday's loss.

Peralta allowed 10 hits and walked a pair on the night. He also had a run wiped off the board when J.T. Realmuto passed Marcell Ozuna on the bases after hitting what should have been a home run. Sadly, it was still one of Peralta's better efforts this season. He's given up a whopping 55 hits over 36 innings this season and holds a 6.75 ERA. He'll get the Padres next.
May 9 - 10:37 PM

Wily Peralta will start Monday against the Marlins.

Peralta was placed on paternity leave Thursday following the birth of his daughter. With Peralta unable to make his scheduled start Friday, Tyler Cravy will fill in against the Reds. Zach Davies had been scheduled to start Monday's game but he'll be pushed back a day.
May 5 - 6:12 PM

Brewers placed RHP Wily Peralta on the paternity leave list.

Peralta's daughter was born on Thursday. Tyler Cravy was called up Triple-A Colorado Springs and will start in Peralta's place Friday against Cincinnati. Peralta should be fine to make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Marlins.
May 5 - 5:00 PM

Despite allowing five runs on 13 hits over 5 2/3 innings, Wily Peralta somehow picked up a win against the Marlins on Sunday.

Peralta should send a fruit basket and some sort of sympathy card to Marlins starter Tom Koehler, as the latter actually managed to pitch worse (allowing eight runs into the third) and gave Peralta a shot at a cheap victory. Neither pitcher struck out a batter. Victory is victory, of course. A victory for fantasy owners would be to bench the talented-but-struggling Peralta until he shows signs of righting the ship. At the moment, he holds a 7.50 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 18/13 K/BB ratio across 30 innings. A road start against the Reds shows next on his schedule.
May 1 - 6:21 PM

Wily Peralta pitched decently in Sunday's win over the Phillies, surrendering four runs (three earned) on seven hits over six innings.

Peralta struck out five and (in a nice change of pace) did not walk a batter on the afternoon. He allowed an RBI single to opposing starter Jerad Eickhoff in the first inning, a Maikel Franco RBI single in the second inning and a pair of RBI doubles to Cameron Rupp and Cesar Hernandez in the sixth to account for the scoring on his line. Peralta will carry a distressing 7.40 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 18/12 K/BB ratio (over 24 1/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a home date with the Marlins.
