Milwaukee Brewers Untapped: Wily Peralta Optioned To Colorado Springs


With Matt Garza ready to come back, the Milwaukee Brewers had a difficult decision to make. They opted to send the struggling Wily Peralta down to Colorado Springs.

The move was made as Matt Garza was activated from the 60-day DL and is scheduled to his season debut Tuesday against the Giants. Peralta had been struggling, posting a 6.68 ERA in 66 innings of work, posting just 42 strikeouts and 27 walks. His K/BB ratio sits at a dismal 1.56.

Garza is looking to rebound from his worst season since being a rookie, as he went 6-14 with a 5.63 ERA in 25 starts last season. Between this season and last, Garza has the third-worst ERA amongst starters with at least 140 IP in that span.

Peralta did hit one of the five homers the Milwaukee Brewers had in the win yesterday. Ryan Braun, Chris Carter, and Scooter Gennett accounted for the other homers for the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Milwaukee Brewers picked up more arms in day three of the draft, as they focused more on collegiate athletes picking up just nine high schoolers out of their 41 total picks. The Milwaukee Brewers focused on drafting college pitchers as they have a plethora of offensive prospects already.

One of the draft picks for the Milwaukee Brewers was a hometown kid who grew up in Beloit, WI. A southpaw from Bradley University, it was a dream come true to be drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers.
