Peralta is set to become a free agent at this end of this season.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander elected free agency Friday, and will attempt to restart his career elsewhere after spending his entire professional career in Milwaukee. Peralta only appeared in 19 games for the Brewers this season, eight of which were starts, while accumulated a 7.85 ERA and 1.83 WHIP. A team may take a chance and try to work Peralta back into the majors as a starter, but he may just wind up serving out of the bullpen if he's able to find a home.

Peralta was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It was expected that Peralta would wind up returning to the Sky Sox after getting designated for assignment last Saturday. He was unable to take advantage of what would've been a lengthy relief appearance against the Nationals last week, giving up seven earned runs in 1.2 innings. The 28-year-old will likely continue working as a relief pitcher with Colorado Springs, and could make another appearance with Milwaukee this season if he can turn things around.

Peralta was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The move from the rotation to the bullpen didn't result in a turnaround for Peralta -- in fact, he was even worse working in shorter spurts, posting a dismal 11.94 ERA and 2.48 WHIP in 11 relief appearances. Given the money owed to Peralta, it seems likely he will pass through waivers unclaimed and accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Peralta (calf) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta, who opened the season as a member of the Brewers' rotation, will continue to work out of the bullpen now that he's healthy again following a three-appearance rehab assignment. He'll see most of his duties in long relief, effectively assuming the duties that had previously fallen to Rob Scahill, who was designated for assignment Sunday in a corresponding move.

Peralta (calf) is set to return to the Brewers this weekend in Philadelphia, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peralta has been out since June 21 with a right calf strain, but has been able to spend the past couple weeks with Triple-A Colorado Springs on a rehab assignment. He tossed two innings against Omaha on Thursday, retiring all six opposing batters while sprinkling in a pair of strikeouts. Peralta figures to rejoin the bullpen upon his arrival, where spent over a month getting used to his new role before landing on the disabled list.

Peralta (calf) will start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It has been exactly two weeks since Peralta landed on the DL with a right calf strain, and the right-hander has progressed smoothly during his time on the mend. Peralta is in line for a few rehab games while he looks to shake off the rust and return to form following his rough batch of outings prior to going down with this injury. It is uncertain which role Peralta will take on once he returns to the Brewers, but he could slide back into a middle relief spot after the All-Star break, barring any setbacks during his rehab appearances.

Peralta was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a right calf strain.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when the injury cropped up, but it's apparently serious enough to warrant a trip to the disabled list. He'll be eligible to return June 30 should he be ready. Peralta struggled mightily since being shifted to the bullpen, compiling a 10.54 ERA and 14:11 K:BB across 13.2 innings (nine appearances). In the meantime, southpaw Brent Suter was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster and in the bullpen.

Since being moved to the bullpen, Peralta has given up four runs in 8.1 innings with a 1.32 WHIP.

EDGE Analysis

At first glance, Peralta's bullpen numbers don't look like much to be excited about, but that changes once you compare them to his starts this year. In eight starts and 40 innings, his ERA was 6.08 and he had given up eight home runs. Since changing roles, he has yet to give up a homer and has increased his strikeout rate from 7.2 per nine innings to 8.6. It is unclear when and if he will return to the rotation this season, but what little fantasy value he does retain seems to come more from a relieving role than a starting one.

Manager Craig Counsell said Peralta will pitch out of the bullpen moving forward, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from an impressive first start, Peralta has struggled this season, posting a 6.08 ERA and 32:17 K:BB through 40 innings (eight starts) this season. It's unclear who will fill his spot in the rotation for the time being, though Counsell said his replacement will likely be announced Thursday. Junior Guerra (calf) should be able to fill the void once he is activated from the disabled list, but the Brewers will likely need a spot starter for Friday's matchup against the Cubs.

Peralta labored through 4.1 innings Sunday against the Mets but came away with a no-decision after giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out one.

EDGE Analysis

Thankfully for the 28-year-old, the Brewers were able to mount a comeback against the porous Mets bullpen to take him off the hook for the loss. However, that doesn't change how unimpressive Peralta was Sunday, needing 92 pitches to complete his outing while only tossing 56 of those for strikes. Granted, much of the damage was done in the last two innings of his start, but frankly outings like this have become par for the course, with Sunday's performance raising his ERA to a career-high 6.08 mark. Peralta will look to bounce back in his upcoming scheduled start against the Cubs on Friday.
