Freddy Peralta News
The Milwaukee Brewers officially named right-hander Freddy Peralta their Game 2 starter in the wild-card series on Wednesday against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. Peralta will be tasked with keeping Milwaukee's season alive after they dropped Game 1 on Tuesday by a score of 6-3. The Brew Crew will not have Brandon Woodruff (shoulder) for the wild-card series, and he might not even be available the rest of the postseason if the Brewers advance to the National League Division Series or beyond. Peralta was solid in 2023, going 12-10 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 210 strikeouts in 165 2/3 innings over his 30 starts. The 27-year-old didn't actually face the Diamondbacks at all during the regular season. Peralta was slightly better at home with a 3.44 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 12.8 K/9 in 89 innings over 16 starts.
The Milwaukee Brewers will give right-handers Freddy Peralta and Brandon Woodruff some extra rest before the postseason and won't have them pitch in the final series of the regular season this weekend against the Chicago Cubs. Woodruff will throw some live batting practice on Friday as his final tune-up. The Brewers could face the Cubs next week in the wild-card series as well, so they'll keep the Cubs from potentially facing two of their starters twice. Peralta, 27, will finish his 2023 season with a 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 210 strikeouts in 165 2/3 innings over 30 starts. Woodruff, 30, was even better with a 2.28 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 74 K's in 67 innings pitched in just 11 starts due to injury.
Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Freddy Peralta turned in another strong start but took the loss in Monday's 1-0 game against the Cardinals. Peralta pitched six innings, allowing a single run on four hits (including a solo home run) and no walks with six strikeouts. The 27-year-old had a rough start to the season but has really picked things up and now owns a 12-9 record with a 3.71 ERA and an 11.40 K/9 rate in 29 starts. His next matchup will be a middling one at the Marlins, but fantasy managers should feel comfortable relying on him for the final few weeks of the season.
Freddy Peralta had a career-high 165.2 IP (30 starts) in 2023, which bodes well moving forward. The results were impressive with a 12-10 W-L record, 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 210 Ks. With a bit more luck, it could've been even better for Peralta. His 3.42 xFIP and 3.45 SIERA suggest there's room for Peralta to have a sub-3.50 ERA, especially if the home runs subside. His 16.0% HR/FB was fourth highest among qualified pitchers. The Brewers American Family Field is one of the more home run friendly ballparks so the homers might not subside too much, but there's certainly room for Peralta to lower his ERA. Peralta's biggest fantasy asset is the strikeouts. His 30.9% K% was in the 92nd percentile and of the 17 pitchers to reach 200 Ks last year, Peralta had the fewest total innings. It was likely no coincidence that Peralta had a career-high 94.4 MPH average fastball velocity in the same year he avoided the IL. All four pitches in his arsenal had a sub-.300 wOBA in 2023 as Peralta gave us a glimpse of what he can do over a full season when healthy. He has top-5 starting pitcher potential in 2024.
