Peralta gave up two runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in a no-decision against Pittsburgh on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It took him 100 pitches to navigate through those five inefficient frames, ending his streak of three straight six-inning starts. Once a promising young starter, Peralta's now 27 years old and has been among the worst pitchers in baseball this year. On the bright side, though, he's given up two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, a stretch that's seen him finally pull his ERA under the 6.00 mark.

Peralta (5-8) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings to earn the victory Sunday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

After owning a 7.30 ERA on May 14, Peralta's now brought that number all the way down to 6.00 in his seven starts since then. This is the first time in his five-year career that the righty has posted higher than a 4.72 ERA. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mariners.

Peralta (4-8) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a loss Tuesday to Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta notched a quality start in his first start back in the majors since June 11, something he failed to do in each of his final six starts before his demotion. Unfortunately, it's hard to get too excited about this start -- Peralta had a horrid 6.31 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs. His success Monday was likely more due to the awful Braves lineup, which is dead last in the National League at 3.56 runs scored per game.

Peralta will be recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start Tuesday's game against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta will start in place of the injured Junior Guerra (elbow). In his 13 starts with the major league club this season, he posted a 6.68 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 66 innings pitched before being demoted to the Triple-A level in June.

Peralta was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite earning the win Saturday against the Mets, Peralta still surrendered two home runs, leaving his ERA at a disappointing 6.68 on the year. Manager Craig Counsell may have tipped the organization's hand following that contest, as he remained non-committal when asked whether Peralta would be making his next scheduled start. The right-hander is one of the hardest throwing starters in the Milwaukee rotation, but has been victimized heavily by walks (3.68 BB/9) and home runs (19.4 percent HR/FB) this season, with both of the aforementioned marks representing career lows. The 27-year-old will now have to work things out in the minors before getting another chance with the big league club. Milwaukee has yet to officially announce a replacement in the rotation, though the expected return of Matt Garza (back) this week would represent a logical choice.

After Saturday's game, manager Craig Counsell would not commit to Peralta taking his next turn in the rotation, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Counsell stressed that there were no physical issues that led to Peralta's removal from Saturday's game against the Mets after 63 pitches. Peralta earned the win over New York but was not good by any means, giving up three runs on five hits (including two homers) and one walk while striking out four over five innings. Matt Garza (back) looms as a threat to take Peralta's spot late this upcoming week.

Peralta has not yet officially lost his rotation spot, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta had a favorable matchup against the Phillies on Sunday, as the team checked in with the second-worst wOBA (.281) in all of Major League Baseball entering the contest. The right-hander effectively failed to keep the light-hitting Phillies in check, allowing six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. It was the fifth time this season that Peralta has allowed five or more earned runs in a start, and the 27-year-old has yet to make it past the sixth inning in a start this year. Despite the struggles, manager Craig Counsell and the Brewers plan to stick by their starter in hopes of Peralta eventually righting the ship. If improvement doesn't begin to show in the near future, however, this topic of conversation will almost surely be revisited.

Peralta (3-6) allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks with two strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta still isn't missing bats. He drew five swinging strikes in 97 pitches and failed to strike out more than two batters for the fourth time in 11 starts. Peralta has a rough 37:24 K:BB and still can't find the reliable secondary pitch he needs to keep hitters off balance. His ERA sits at 6.51 and it won't be going down by much until he can resolve his horrendous 13.5 H/9.

Peralta (3-5) only tossed 5.1 innings allowing two earned runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts, but it was enough to get the win Thursday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta struggles with effectiveness, and needed 95 pitches to cover 5.1 frames, but this time it was enough for the win. For what it's worth, Peralta also contributed at the plate with a two-out, two-run single in the fourth inning. Peralta saw his ERA drop for the second straight game, and now it sits at 6.62. His next start will happen against the Cardinals next Tuesday.

Peralta allowed three runs on six hits, walking two and striking out six over 5.2 innings of a 3-2 loss against the Mets on Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

While still not very efficient - he needed 108 pitches to cover the 5.2 innings - Peralta (2-5) was better than he has been recently, and saw his ERA drop to a still bloated 6.99 on the year. His spot in the rotation has been rumored to be in jeopardy, but perhaps this outing was good enough to earn him another turn against the Braves in Atlanta next week.
