Milwaukee Brewers place Wily Peralta on 10-day disabled list, call up Brent Suter

The club says it’s a “right calf strain.”

Just two days after manager Craig Counsell stated that “frankly, it’s getting tough” to stick with the struggling Wily Peralta in the bullpen, the Milwaukee Brewers have announced that the big righty is being placed on the 10-day disabled list:

There hadn’t been any recent reports of Peralta having issues with the right calf that sent him to the DL, so the injury must have cropped up very recently (wink, wink). Big Wily has been downright ineffective this season, whether he’s been pitching as a starter or reliever. In 53.2 innings covering 17 appearances (8 starts) this year, Peralta owns a 7.21 ERA, 46:28 K/BB rate, and career-worst 44.1% ground ball rate. He’s been hit especially hard since being relegated to relief duty, allowing at least one earned run in his last 7 appearances and multiple runs in 5 of those.

Earlier today we learned that Brent Suter was at Miller Park, and his official activation will be the corresponding move to fill the roster spot vacated by Wily. This is Suter’s 5th stint with the big league club this season, and he owns a 5.25 ERA and 7:5 K/BB rate in 12.0 innings pitched as a member of the Brewers in 2017. He’s been pretty good in AAA, posting a 4.42 ERA and 38:8 K/BB rate in 36.2 innings pitched with the Sky Sox.
