Freddy Peralta fires four scoreless Wednesday

Freddy Peralta pitched four scoreless innings in relief in the Brewers' 4-2 loss to the Mariners on Wednesday. He allowed two hits, walked two, and struck out five in the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact

Adrian Houser served as an opener, but Peralta did the bulk of the heavy lifting here. He has been much better as a reliever than a starter, with a 2.18 ERA and 4.6 K/BB ratio out of the bullpen.

Freddy Peralta tagged for six runs in loss Tuesday

Freddy Peralta allowed six runs on eight hits over four innings in the Brewers' 10-8 loss to the Astros on Tuesday. He walked one and struck out seven while falling to 3-3.

Fantasy Impact

This is vintage Peralta. Following up a good start with a dud, racking up enough strikeouts to make himself interesting, yet still living in unusable territory. Peralta isn't someone that should be relied on in fantasy. His next start comes Monday at San Diego.

Freddy Peralta strikes out nine in win Thursday

Freddy Peralta allowed one run on four hits over six innings in the Brewers' 5-1 win over the Marlins on Thursday. He walked none and struck out nine while improving to 3-2.

Fantasy Impact

It's starts like these that make us interested in Peralta, but don't let him fool you. He has a 5.11 ERA and 1.64 HR/9 for a reason; chiefly, he only has two reliable pitches. He's streamable against a team like the Marlins, but then again, so are most pitchers. His next start isn't as easy, Wednesday at Houston.

Freddy Peralta lasts four innings in no decision Monday

Freddy Peralta allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits over four innings in the Brewers' 7-4 loss to the Phillies on Monday. He walked none and struck out five in the no decision.

Fantasy Impact

This was death by 1000 papercuts for Peralta, as the Phillies knocked seven singles off him in four innings. On the bright side, Peralta did not allow an extra base hit or issue a walk. It's disappointing that he lasted just 80 pitches, but his early hook was due to a pinch-hitter, not his poor performance. The floor is too low to trust Peralta yet, but he's worth watching. His next start comes Saturday at Atlanta.

Freddy Peralta pitches five scoreless in win Tuesday

Freddy Peralta delivered five scoreless innings in relief in the Brewers' 6-0 win over the Nationals on Tuesday. He walked two and struck out five while improving to 2-1.

Fantasy Impact

Adrian Houser was used as an opener ahead of Peralta in this one, but Peralta did most of the heavy lifting and therefore got the win. It would be an oversimplification to say that the opener is the reason for Peralta's success, but less exposure is probably better for a pitcher with a limited repertoire like Peralta. Whether he starts or is used in long relief, his next outing would likely be Monday at Philadelphia.
