|Wily Peralta posts quality start in win over Reds |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/21/14) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta put together a quality start for the win Monday night at home against the Reds, improving to 11-6 on the year. The right-hander allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings of a 5-2 victory.
Over his last two starts covering 14 innings, Peralta has permitted only one earned run. He owns a 3.58 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP over 20 starts (125 2/3 innings). He'll look to win his third straight decision Saturday at home against the Mets.

(7/13/14) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta finished the first half of the season on a high note, notching his 10th win of the season Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals. The right-hander yielded one unearned run on three hits and no walks while striking out five over seven innings of an 11-2 victory.
Peralta enters the break 10-6, with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP over 19 starts (118 2/3 innings). His next start has yet to be determined, as the Brewers have not yet announced their post-break rotation plans.
|Wily Peralta not so trustworthy right now |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/9/14) I'm inclined to say that at 84 percent, Wily Peralta is overowned right now. His troubles didn't just begin with the nine earned runs he allowed to the Phillies Tuesday night. He now has just three quality starts in his last eight, compiling a 6.38 ERA during that stretch.
But the ERA doesn't trouble me as much as the 1.34 WHIP and especially the 6.8 strikeouts per nine innings. Much of Peralta's success earlier in the year was the result of an improved ability to miss bats. His ground-ball tendencies predispose him to a higher-than-usual hit rate, so when he allows more contact overall, the damage can pile up quickly. And when he goes back to walking batters at the same rate he did last year, as he has in his last 10 starts, he's barely mixed-league viable.
That said, the starting pitcher position has thinned out enough in recent weeks that quality replacements are no longer so available. For all my concerns about Peralta, I still rank him in the top 75 at the position, so the better choice than dropping him in most leagues is to bench and hope he regains the form he showed at the beginning of the year. He has the stuff to get back there.
|Wily Peralta slammed for nine runs in loss Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta earned a loss Tuesday, giving up nine earned runs on eight hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 9-7 defeat against the Phillies.
Peralta (9-6) was handed a 5-1 lead after allowing a run to score on a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but he promptly gave it back, surrendering five runs in the second inning. He then served up a solo home run in the third and watched two more runs score on a fifth-inning single. The outing was Peralta's shortest and highest-scoring of the season.
Peralta owns a 3.95 ERA and 84:31 K:BB ratio in 111 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to get a shot at redemption Sunday against the Cardinals.
|Wily Peralta gives up big hits in rocky outing |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Four extra-base hits, including two home runs, helped prevent Brewers starter Wily Peralta from snagging a win Wednesday in Toronto.
Peralta yielded a first-inning homer to Jose Bautista, as well as an RBI double to Adam Lind in the third and two-run blast by Juan Francisco in the fourth. He settled down to finish with four runs allowed on nine hits in six innings with three walks and four strikeouts as his ERA inched up to 3.35.
He will try to avoid a third straight outing without a quality start Tuesday night against Philadelphia.
|Wily Peralta's rookie season was shaping up to be a forgettable one when he had a 6.08 ERA and 1.66 WHIP and was averaging just 5.1 strikeouts per nine innings in mid-June. But something clicked right about that point -- something that peripherals, matchups and even pure logic can't explain. Over his final 17 starts -- or more than half the season -- Peralta compiled a 3.05 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 7.3 strikeouts per nine innings. Again, it's not like he developed a new pitch or overcame his occasional bouts of wildness. He just stopped getting hit so hard. In a way, it makes sense. Any pitcher with promise should theoretically progress over time even if nothing changes for him fundamentally. Still, you can expect Peralta to have his share of skeptics. Make no mistake: He was a legitimate prospect coming up through the minors and has a good enough fastball to merit sleeper consideration, but because of perception, you can afford to pass up Peralta outside of NL-only leagues.
