Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that the Mets view free agent right-hander Wily Peralta as a potential swingman option.
It's not going to excite many Mets fans, as Peralta struggled with a 7.85 ERA and 52/32 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings with the Brewers this season and was even outrighted off the 40-man roster in August. The 28-year-old probably won't require more than a minor league deal, which could be why the Mets are willing to take a look at him. Nov 13 - 8:34 PM

Wily Peralta has elected free agency.

A former Opening Day starter with the Brew Crew, Peralta held a 7.85 ERA over 19 appearances -- eight starts -- this season, spending a chunk of the year in the minors. He'll likely be just a minor league flier for some team this winter.
Oct 6 - 3:45 PM

Brewers sent RHP Wily Peralta outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peralta was designated for assignment by Milwaukee at the end of July after posting a hideous 7.85 ERA and 1.83 WHIP across 57 1/3 innings. He will remain with the club as organizational pitching depth after passing through waivers unclaimed.
Aug 3 - 2:42 PM

Brewers designated RHP Wily Peralta for assignment.

The 28-year-old right-hander has been a complete disaster this season, compiling a 7.85 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 52/32 K/BB ratio across 57 1/3 innings. He's an intriguing enough talent that he could attract interest on waivers.
Jul 29 - 3:49 PM

Brewers activated RHP Wily Peralta from the 10-day disabled list.

Peralta missed the last month with a strained calf. He'll be used in middle relief.
Jul 23 - 8:57 AM

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.
