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.
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.
