The Brewers have announced that they’ve designated righty Wily Peralta for assignment. The move clears space on their active and 40-man rosters for outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis, whose contract they’ve selected from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Peralta had been a longtime member of the Brewers’ rotation, making 120 starts since his MLB debut with the club in 2012. He typically pitched serviceably or downright well, as he did in 2014, when he produced a 3.54 ERA, 7.0 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 over nearly 200 innings.
This year, however, has been disastrous for Peralta — he has a 7.85 ERA, 8.2 K/9 and 5.0 BB/9 over 57 1/3 frames, with many of those coming in relief. He also only recently returned after missing a month due to a calf issue. He’s making $4.275MM in his second year through the arbitration process as a Super Two player, so it’s highly unlikely he’ll be claimed on waivers.
Might as well give him a shot in Seattle as they keep letting Gallardo pitch, and are now starting Ramirez.
That moment when you realize the Brewers pitching staff is comprised of bums and reclamation projects
Bums and reclamation projects who have the team way ahead of expectations and only a game and a half out of 1st. Those bums?
Gallardo 5 2/3 innings 1 run yesterday.
Sonny Gray is knocking down the door lol
Brewers have no business going after sonny Gray. They are playing well but it won’t last. Unless they flip him this winter. They won’t get him.
It lasted over half the year…
So when the cardinals have success with players no one has ever heard of, its called the “cardinal way.” But when Milwaukee does the same thing and wins with players the nation doesn’t recognize, it “won’t last”. And if they do get gray, their rotation would look really good, and would have a lot of team control
Minnesota go get him!
2 roster spots open, could be a possibility
They’ll need someone to take Bartolo Colon’s place, of course.
Not at the expense of Brinson. No way does stearns do a deal where he deals away the number 1 prospect. Gray is at best a number 3 starter
“at best a #3 starter” i want what you’re smoking, He would easily be the ace of the staff if he went to Milwaukee.
davies is the proven ace. gray #2 would love to see it for the brew crew though
Davies has a 4.45 ERA, wins do not signify an ace haha
Lol, no way is Davies better then Gray, cant even take you serious with that statement. How much postseason experience does Davies have?
I can’t even take you serious with saying postseason experience is why gray is better.
Davies? Anderson and Nelson are probably interchangable as the teams ace, Suter has been great, Garza has actually been better than Davies. Gray would instantly be better than all of them. Ignore his last season that he pitched through nagging injuries.
Look at each of their career stats, that will tell you why Gray is better. Try doing some research before making statements like that.
Fun fact: Teheran and grays career numbers, averaged out over a season are virtually identical
I wasn’t disagreeing with you. Davies hasn’t exactly deserved his record. I’m trying to figure out what postseason experience has to do with anything. That’s almost as useless as wins. The A’s went to the playoffs recently, congratulations.
Davies is terrifying to watch man the only reason he has a solid record is because the Brewers offense bails him out of games when he gives up five runs
Sonny would be the best pitcher for the Brewers right now but that doesn’t make him an ace.
You are correct but brinson is still much more valuable than gray….you’re not getting him
Look at his stats over the years. It’s indicates that he is a number 3 starter plus ad on the fact he’s been injury prone
13-15 his ERAs were 2.67, 3.08, 2.73 with ERA+ of 146, 120, 143 and never a Whip over 1.2. He was third in Cy Young voting in 15. Those aren’t #3 numbers. Last year was bad and this year was a slow start largely due to nagging injuries. If he’s healthy he’s a proven ace, it’s the injury history that could be some concern.
Thank you, you said it for me
Not sure what stats you are looking at. The ones I look at tell me that he’s a better pitcher than what the Brewers have. He might be a #3 on a few teams, but for more than half of the teams in MLB he would instantly be their best starter.
Right on a slightly better than league average rotation. That doesn’t mean they spend stupid on grey.
A #3 at best? He would be far and away the best starter on the Brewers, under team control for a few more years through what should be part of his prime, and finished third in Cy Young voting two season ago. He’d make any staff better
At best, Gray is an ace. At worst, Gray is a #3. There fixed it for you.
But yes, doubt they include Brinson
But-Burnes, Phillips, Ray, Woodruff and Broxton would get a deal done for Gray
The only thing I disagree with is including phillips, give them Clark instead.
Phillips, Ray, Burnes, and Woodruff is too much. 3 of those guys are on at least 1 top 100 list. That’s a super steep price.
Ok. Phillips and Ray will not go together. Word is Oakland turned down Ray and Ortiz. That is a sweet package but probably also the most the brewers would pay outside of adding Broxton and maybe a low level lottery ticket.
Bye Wily, the rollercoaster of emotions is finally over.
Thank God. I heard they called him a cab before the game was over in Washington.
Type of pitcher the Orioles should snag. Young enough to have upside/potential. But bad enough that he won’t cost much in prospects or money.
He’s not American, they don’t want him
I like this guy lmao
I’m sure he can be had for a book of Orioles stamps.
I accept that Wily is gone. I’m sure he will turn it around somewhere but why bring up Kirk give Nate Orf or even Cheng a chance
They needed someone who can play CF and probably didn’t want Phillips up sitting and using up an option. Would rather see Wren or even Keon back up over Kirk though. We’ve seen this show before and it’s never good. He’s not even hitting well in Colorado Springs where everyone hits.
Phillips and Broxton are ineligible to come back up because they haven’t been down 10 days.
A nice reclamation project for the Pirates?
I sort of hope not. He’d be more expensive than their usual dumpster dive finds, and he would be staying in the same division that has been battering him this year.
True, but he would be moving from homer-happy Miller Park to spacious PNC. That should make a difference.
The problem isn’t exactly his HR/9 it’s that his WHIP is 1.8. Too many walks and base hits. He has some good ‘stuff’ but he is not a good ‘pitcher’.
Gray may be a number 2 or 3 starter but not a number 1 starter. And he is not going to get traded to any team that’s gives up their top 2 prospects. Unless that team is desperate for pitching. Yankees, Astros and the Brewers are interested. But I can’t see the Brewers giving up a top prospect for him unless the owner says yes
You obviously don’t know the Brewers owner. If anything Mark A would push Stearns to make a dumb deal.
If the Jays do end up trading Estrada and Liriano I wouldnt mind him as a claim. Hes a warm body to throw innings. Bolsingers really the only other pitcher capable of doing that for us
Wtf? I’m glad Peralta is gone but Kirk sucks
Kirk Nieuwenhuis suck why is he still on the team?
Probably his last chance to show anything before freeing up his seat on the 40 man roster.
