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.

Manager Craig Counsell wouldn't commit to Peralta making his next scheduled May 21 against the Mets, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta, the Brewers' Opening Day starter, has been abysmal throughout the season, and things got even worse during Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Padres, as the right-hander served up six runs on eight hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. Counsell and the team's staff will likely take another day or two before determining the next course of action with Peralta, but at this point, he's doing a lot more harm than good for his fantasy owners. Peralta is sitting on a 2-4 record and a 7.30 ERA across 40.2 innings on the campaign.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander has give up at least five runs in four of his eight starts this season. Somehow he's managed to go 1-2 in those four outings, and he is 2-4 despite owning a 7.30 ERA and 1.99 WHIP. He also has 25 strikeouts and 18 walks. His next start will be Saturday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Monday's start was just the second time Peralta has been able to finish six innings in his seven starts this season. The 27-year-old has been brutal this season, recording a 6.75 ERA and 1.94 WHIP to date. Peralta's next start will come Saturday against the Padres.

Peralta was activated from the paternity list and will start Monday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta will return to action after spending the weekend with his growing family. His last start came against the same Marlins team he will face Monday; and although he picked up the win in that outing, he did give up 13 hits and five earned runs while failing to strike out a batter over 5.2 innings.
