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. Apr 24 - 5:26 PM

Wily Peralta held the Twins to two runs over five innings Tuesday in a no-decision.

It was the best start of the season for Peralta, even though he walked four and gave up five hits. Milwaukee wound up winning the game with a go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning. Peralta will carry an 0-3 record and 8.35 ERA into his next start at home against the Phillies. If he can't manage a win against that lineup, we're in real trouble here.
Apr 19 - 5:00 PM

Wily Peralta surrendered five runs in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Peralta, the Brewers' Opening Day starter by default, is 0-3 with a 10.13 ERA. The Brewers lack rotation alternatives with Matt Garza out, so Peralta probably isn't looking at a demotion just yet. It's getting ugly, though.
Apr 14 - 5:05 PM

Wily Peralta allowed six runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

Peralta was done in by the long ball, as three of the Astros' seven hits against him left the yard. Walks didn't help, either, as he issued four free passes while striking out four. He now owns a 10.80 ERA through two starts. The good news is that number will likely go down by season's end. The bad news is, it probably won't go down as much as Peralta would like. He'll take on the Pirates next on Friday.
Apr 9 - 11:03 PM

Wily Peralta allowed five runs -- four earned -- over four innings as the Brewers dropped their season opener Monday versus the Giants.

Peralta had a clean first inning, but the Giants got to him for two runs in the second, two more in the third, and another in the fourth. San Francisco's offense then went haywire on the Milwaukee bullpen in what became a 12-3 rout at Miller Park. Peralta has flashed high-level stuff at times in the past, but the inconsistency just isn't there. He's not a great fantasy bet this year on a rebuilding Brewers team.
Apr 4 - 5:53 PM

Wily Peralta allowed three (unearned) runs over four innings Tuesday in a loss to the Reds.

Rule 5 Draft pick Colin Walsh made three errors in the field, just hours after he had been told he will be on the Brewers' major league roster when the team heads north. Peralta isn't totally free of fault, though, as he gave up six hits and a walk in just four frames. He'll wrap up the Cactus League schedule with a 6.30 ERA in 20 innings. This is Milwaukee's Opening Day starter.
Mar 29 - 7:11 PM

Wily Peralta tossed six innings of one-run ball in a 9-2 win over the Royals on Thursday.

It was easily his best outing of the spring. Peralta held the Royals to just four hits while walking none and striking out three. The lone run scored on a solo homer by Eric Hosmer. The strong outing improved his Cactus League ERA from 11.70 to 7.88, which should at least make Brewers fans feel a little better that he's starting Opening Day. Just a little.
Mar 24 - 7:11 PM

Wily Peralta will start Opening Day against the Giants.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell made the announcement Monday morning in camp. Peralta has struggled mightily this spring in the Cactus League, yielding 23 hits and 19 runs -- 13 earned -- over 10 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander registered an ugly 4.72 ERA across 108 2/3 frames for Milwaukee in 2015. That's the state of this rapidly-rebuilding organization.
Mar 21 - 1:19 PM

Wily Peralta got demolished by the Angels on Saturday, allowing 10 runs -- seven earned -- on 11 hits over 2 2/3 innings.

It's only March, but the start was still a bad look for the right-hander. He allowed two home runs, both to Albert Pujols, and failed to register a strikeout in the disaster. He exited the start with a 11.70 ERA, but even before the beatdown Peralta owned a 7.36 ERA and 1.91 WHIP this spring. The Brewers don't have incentive to remove him from the rotation, but it could be a long year in Milwaukee.
Mar 19 - 8:23 PM

Wily Peralta was touched up for six runs -- three earned -- across 3 2/3 innings on Monday against the Dodgers.

The good news is Peralta struck out five and walked just one. The bad news is he surrendered five hits -- including a homer and a couple doubles -- while getting pasted for the six runs. It's the second straight start where he's struggled. Peralta will hope to right the ship over the weekend.
Mar 14 - 7:45 PM

Wily Peralta struggled against the Royals on Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings.

Tough outing for Peralta, who could probably use a nice spring training to ease into the regular season. Last year, he held a disappointing 4.72 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 60/37 K/BB ratio across 108 2/3 injury-plagued innings. He has never posted a WHIP of lower than 1.30 in a full season. Use caution when drafting here.
Mar 9 - 6:56 PM

Wily Peralta allowed one hit and struck out one batter over two scoreless frames Friday against the Mariners.

Peralta is looking to rebound after a disappointing and injury-plagued season in which he posted a 4.72 ERA with 5.0 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 over 20 starts. Getting some of his old velocity back would really help his cause. It’s something worth watching this spring and early on in the season.
Mar 4 - 5:44 PM

Brewers and RHP Wily Peralta avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.8 million contract.

It had been announced earlier in the day that the two sides reached an agreement, and now Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel adds the details. The 26-year-old right-hander will look to bounce back from a disappointing and injury-plagued 2015 season where he registered a 4.72 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 108 2/3 innings.
Jan 15 - 10:57 PM

Wily Peralta (oblique) won't pitch again this season.

The Brewers announced it on their Twitter feed, citing left oblique tightness. He missed nearly two months with a strain of the same oblique earlier this year, so with nothing left to play for the team is opting to play it safe. Peralta's season ends with a disappointing 5-10 record, 4.72 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 20 starts.
Wed, Sep 23, 2015 06:20:00 PM

Wily Peralta took his 10th loss of the season on Monday after allowing the Cubs to score six times in 4 2/3 innings of work.

Peralta saw 13 Cubs reach base: eight on hits, four on walks, and one after being hit by a pitch. It was a forgettable evening. The right-hander has a subpar 4.72 ERA with a 1.54 WHIP and a 60/37 K/BB ratio over 108 2/3 innings. Peralta will have to deal with the Cardinals in a road match-up next.
