Wily Peralta struggling with strikeouts
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com (5/7/2013) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta has seen his strikeout rate plummet this year.
Peralta's strikeout rate has fallen to just 11.8 percent this season, which is down from 20.4 percent in 2012. The biggest culprit appears to be Peralta's slider.

Through six starts, he has a 6.00 ERA and a 4.47 FIP.

Manager wants young pitchers to mimic Kyle Lohse

Manager Ron Roenicke hopes Lohse's aggressiveness will start to rub off on some of the team's younger starters, including Wily Peralta, who has thrown strikes 59.2 percent of the time.
"The younger guys need to see how the veterans pitch and are successful, and what they do when they get themselves in trouble," Roenicke said. "We talked to Wily [on Wednesday about his disappointing start the night before]. I want him to learn from that."

Wily Peralta preps for regular season

Wily Peralta needs better control
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst (3/29/2013) Now that Wily Peralta has officially made the Brewers' rotation, he is starting to climb the ranks of our most-added starting pitchers' list. He is still owned in roughly one-fifth of the leagues on CBSSports.com, but if you are thinking of helping to increase his popularity, give the following some thought:
At Triple-A Nashville last year, Peralta threw only 60 percent of his pitches for strikes, according to StatCorner.com, and that contributed to an unsightly 4.8 BB/9 rate. Nine qualifying starting pitchers had a 60 percent strikes-thrown rate or lower in the majors last season, and only one -- Yovani Gallardo -- had an ERA below 4.00. Gallardo needed a high strikeout rate and an above-average strand rate to pull off the feat.
My colleague, Nando Di Fino, already has made the case that Mike Fiers didn't deserve a demotion to the bullpen and that he could return soon to the Brewers' rotation. However, it may be the struggles of Peralta -- and not Chris Narveson -- that open the door for Fiers.
Wily Peralta to open season in Brewers' rotation
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com (3/28/2013) Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta has been named the team's starter for the series finale against opening-day opponent Colorado, meaning Peralta has won a spot in the Brewers' initial rotation. Peralta's hold on a rotation spot was tenuous after the team added Kyle Lohse this week and Peralta allowed six runs on 10 hits in his most recent start.
Wily Peralta, Mike Fiers might be in trouble
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (3/25/2013) With Kyle Lohse coming aboard Monday, someone else has to vacate the Brewers' rotation. That someone might very well be Wily Peralta, even though manager Ron Roenicke has said pretty much from the outset that Peralta has a job.
You'd hate to see him lose it before he gets a chance. Yes, you could argue he got his chance in spring training, but the intensity isn't the same there as in a major-league game. Plus, the Brewers play their spring games in the Cactus League, which heavily favors hitters.
For a pitcher like Peralta, both factors are extremely important. Just look at his numbers in the low-pressure environment of Triple-A Nashville in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League last year. Only when he reached the majors in September did he look like the top prospect the scouts made him out to be.
Of course, maybe the Brewers know all of that. Maybe the pitcher they're actually looking to remove is Mike Fiers -- who unlike Peralta, struggled last September. That wouldn't be better news for Fantasy owners.

Peralta can be 'top-tier' pitcher
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (2/21/2013) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was very complimentary Thursday when talking about pitching prospect Wily Peralta, who is vying for a spot in the team's rotation this spring. Theres separation from guys that you think have a chance to be Yo [Gallardo] and [CC] Sabathia and (Zack) Greinke, and other guys are just going to be good major league pitchers, Roenicke said, per MLB.com. But Peralta has enough special stuff that he has a chance to be one of those [top-tier] guys. Peralta has yet to face hitters this spring, but Roenicke is excited to see him in action. Peralta is more an up top, power, moving ball thats coming down in the zone, with a tight, nice slider thats going to be a punch-out slider, Roenicke said. I know he didnt punch-out a lot of guys in Triple-A last year, but when he got to us and he commands both of those, hes going to be a punch-out pitcher."
