Wily Peralta SP MIL 7 days ago

Peralta (oblique) threw his first bullpen session since going on the disabled list Monday, and indicated that it went well, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Peralta hopes to depart on a rehab assignment within the next couple weeks, but that should unfold as he continues to throw bullpen sessions. His timetable hinges on his progress through rehab, but he took a positive first step forward Monday.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Thursday that Peralta (oblique) is likely a bit behind the initial timetable of four-to-six weeks, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "We're probably a little behind," Counsell said. "I think obliques, you've got to get it completely out of there and then you can move forward. It takes time especially for a pitcher to build the arm back up when you take time off."

Peralta threw from 105 feet on flat ground Thursday, but he still hasn't gotten back on a mound since suffering the injury four weeks ago. He'll likely need a rehab start or two, and he may now be targeting a return shortly before the All-Star break.

Peralta was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday with a rib-cage strain.

Manager Craig Counsell said Peralta will miss at least four weeks with the injury. David Goforth will be recalled Tuesday to take Peralta's spot on the roster, but Peralta's replacement in the rotation is to be determined. Michael Blazek could be an option after tossing three scoreless, one-hit innings in relief of Peralta on Friday.

Peralta is headed for the 15-day DL with a rib-cage strain, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Peralta's injury was initially labeled left side tightness, but it's now being classified as a rib-cage strain and the right-hander will land on the DL as a result. David Goforth will be recalled in a corresponding move, but Goforth hasn't started since 2013, so it seems likely the Brewers will turn elsewhere to fill Peralta's rotation spot.

Peralta (side tightness) is at risk of missing Wednesday's scheduled start, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Peralta exited Friday's game against the Braves due to side tightness, but was optimistic that he wouldn't have to miss a turn in the rotation as a result. That notion may no longer hold true, however, as he isn't considered "a sure thing" for that start anymore. Peralta is one of the few consistent options in the Milwaukee starting rotation, so his loss, in any capacity, would be a tough hit for a team that is shallow at the position.

Peralta (side tightness) will play catch Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The right-hander said he felt "a little better" Saturday, a day after leaving a start after four scoreless innings with left side tightness. Peralta is hoping he won't have to miss a turn in the rotation, but he'll likely need to complete a bullpen session in the coming days to get the green light to toe the rubber.

Peralta left Friday's game against Atlanta after four innings with left side tightness.

Peralta seemed to be in a groove before being lifted for a pinch hitter, allowing one hit and two walks over four scoreless frames, but evidently he was battling through some side tightness. Consider Peralta day-to-day and questionable to make his next start until more information becomes available.

Peralta was lifted for a pinch hitter in the fourth inning of Friday's game, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

It wasn't obvious that something was ailing Peralta and the Brewers have not yet issued a statement, but it seems he's dealing with an injury of some kind given the circumstances. The Brewers were leading 9-0 against the Braves when Peralta left the game.

Peralta struck out four and walked one while holding the White Sox to two runs on six hits over six innings Monday night. He did not factor in the decision.

The Brewers' bullpen coughed up a five-run lead following Peralta's exit, while Jonathan Broxton was credited with the victory despite giving up two runs on four hits in his lone inning. Peralta has been quietly chipping away at his ratios since back-to-back rough starts against the Cardinals and Reds in mid-April. He's scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Mets at Citi Field.

Peralta pitched eight innings of two run ball on Wednesday in a 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

Peralta gave up two runs on seven hits, striking out six batters without walking anyone. After getting terrible run support up to this point, Peralta finally got help from the offense to earn his first win of the season. He's been much better than his 1-4 record speaks.
