The Washington Nationals have signed veteran pitcher Wily Peralta to a minor-league contract.
The pact also comes with an invite to big-league spring training. Despite limited interest this offseason, Peralta was excellent over the last two seasons with the Tigers. The 33-year-old pitched to a stout 2.93 ERA across 132 frames between the rotation and bullpen in that time with that ERA figure sitting 31st of the 203 pitchers with at least 130 innings pitched. Peralta's lack of strikeouts and elevated walk rates cap his value from a fantasy perspective even if he manages to crack the Nationals' rotation.
Wily Peralta has been placed on the 15-day injured list with a left hamstring strain on Wednesday.
Peralta was injured pitching in the eighth inning during Detroit's win over Cleveland on Tuesday. He'll hit the shelf after pitching well this season, collecting a 2-0 record with a 2.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 33 1/2 innings. In a corresponding move, Detroit called up right handed pitcher Will Vest from Triple A Toledo.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Wily Peralta threw two scoreless innings in a 5-0 loss to the Astros on Sunday. Peralta struck out three and walked three in the start.
Peralta has made seven appearances this season but Sunday's was his first start of the season. The veteran has yet to allow a run across 10 1/3 innings of work while posting 13 strikeouts.
Tigers pitcher Wily Peralta has been promoted to the majors, according to MLB.com's Jon Morosi.
Following a strong 2021 season, Peralta re-signed with the Tigers. However, due to the lockout and visa issues, he opened the year in the minors. Now, after 4.1 scoreless innings at Double- and Triple-A, the 32-year-old right-hander is returning to the big leagues. Peralta had a 3.07 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and .247 OBA through 19 outings (18 starts) last year. Detroit is expected to use him as a reliever going forward.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Wily Peralta, who started 18 games last season, is expected to spend 2022 in the bullpen once he's promoted to the majors.
Peralta had a solid 2021 season with the Tigers, posting a 3.07 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. He walked 38 batters but struck out a mere 58. The right-hander signed a minor league deal with Detroit last month, and his arrival to the States was delayed due to visa issues. After spending some time in the minors, he should be ready to join the Tigers' bullpen.
