Freddy Peralta was placed on the paternity list Thursday.
Peralta will take a few days off to be with his family. He has pitched well recently, allowing just one run in his last five outings. It in is unclear if he will return before the season ends. Eric Lauer was recalled in a corresponding move.
Freddy Peralta picked up the win in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Cubs, allowing only one hit over two scoreless innings of relief while striking out five.
Peralta is now 1-1 on the season and has pitched well in long relief with nine shutout innings with a 19:2 K:BB over his last three appearances. If Peralta can regain a spot in the rotation he would be worth adding in deeper fantasy leagues.
Freddy Peralta (0-1) allowed four runs on three hits and two walks across three innings in Sunday's 9-1 defeat to the Cubs. He earned his first loss of the season.
Peralta cruised through the first three innings until unraveling in the fourth. He was bumped up a spot in the rotation due to Brett Anderson (finger) being placed on the injured list. Peralta may not be in rotation every fifth day as manager Craig Counsell said "not to get stuck" on traditional starting roles. The 24-year-old is currently not scheduled to start next week.
Freddy Peralta will start Sunday July 26th against the Cubs.
Peralta will take the mound in the series finale against the Cubs. He was moved up in the rotation once Brett Anderson (blister) was placed on the IL. Peralta owns a career 5.27 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 211:77 K:BB across 163 1/3 innings .
Freddy Peralta is in the process of finalizing a five-year extension with the Brewers Wednesday morning. The five-year deal totals $15.5 million, plus two club options that could bring the total to $30 million.
Peralta ended 2019 on a high note, registering a 1.86 ERA over eight September appearances. The Brewers have tabbed Peralta as a candidate competing for the fifth starter's role in 2020, but he can certainly serve as a reliable bullpen piece if he fails to crack the rotation. The final details of Peralta's extension should come over the next few days.
