Freddy Peralta, starting tonight for the Brewers against the Giants, left the game in the third inning due to injury. In an official statement, the club said that the right-decreased hander’s velocity is due to shoulder stress. Manager Craig Counsell told reporters after the game, including MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy, that Peralta will likely return to the 15-day injury list.
This has to be very disheartening news for the 2021 All-Star, who has already missed significant time due to a lat injury. He’s had some problems since coming back from the IL with keeping his best form every fifth day.
Since the Brewers wanted to give Peralta a little extra rest before his scheduled start on Monday, they moved his scheduled start from Monday to tonight. Nothing came of it, and it appears the team will give him at least two weeks off before he pitches again.
Neither Peralta nor Counsell seemed very concerned for his long-term health, but it’s clear that this is not a good situation. Initial inspections uncovered no structural issues, so the club is fairly convinced that the problem is merely fatigue-related. As reported by Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Peralta assured the media that he will return to pitching this season after taking some time off to rest his arm.

The ailments have kept Peralta from matching his performance from the previous year when he posted a 2.81 ERA in 144 1/3 innings of work. Despite only being able to take the ball 15 times, his 3.45 ERA and above-average 26.6% strikeout rate show that he is still quite successful when healthy. Needless to say, losing half of that arm’s workload has been a major setback for a Milwaukee team fighting for a postseason place.
Because of shoulder discomfort, the Brewers have been without Aaron Ashby since August 20. Yesterday, Milwaukee was dealt another scare when left-handed starter Eric Lauer exited with an elbow issue and did not return. McCalvy reports that tomorrow, Lauer will go in for further evaluation after an initial MRI showed positive results. So far, Milwaukee hasn’t put him on the injured list, so there’s hope that he can play in his next start.
Even with Peralta’s early exit, the Brewers were able to finish off a sweep of today’s doubleheader against the Giants. With about a month left in the season, it cut their deficit to 2 1/2 games over the Phillies for the NL’s final Wild Card spot.
The Seattle Mariners acquired Adam Lind from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for David Peralta, Daniel Misaki, and Carlos Herrera. In 2016, he split time between the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and the Biloxi Shuckers, where he went 4-4 with a 3.62 ERA across 82 innings.
2017 saw Peralta pitch for both the Carolina Mudcats and the Biloxi Blue Wave. Between the two teams, he appeared in 25 games (19 starts), posting a 3-8 record with a 2.63 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. After the season ended, he was included on the Brewers’ 40-man roster. Peralta entered the 2018 season as Milwaukee’s No. 10 prospect, according to MLB.com.
In 2018, Peralta started out with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox before getting called up to Milwaukee on May 13. He made his first appearance that evening at Coors Field, where the Colorado Rockies were playing. In 5.2 innings of work, he struck out 13 batters and allowed no runs, establishing a new Brewers record for strikeouts by a rookie starter.
He finished the year with a 6-4 record and a 4.25 earned run average. His.110 batting average against was the lowest of any MLB pitcher (in 30 or more innings). Peralta made 39 appearances with the Brewers in 2019, posting a 7-3 record, 5.29 ERA, and 115 strikeouts in 85.0 innings of work. A five-year, $15.5 million contract agreement between Peralta and the Brewers was signed on February 28, 2020.
Peralta made 15 appearances with the Brew Crew in 2020, posting a 3-1 record, 3.99 ERA, and 47 strikeouts in 29.1 innings thrown. Peralta made 28 appearances with the Brewers in 2021, recording a 10-5 record, 2.81 ERA, and 195 strikeouts over 144.1 innings of work.
