Peralta lasted just two innings in his first start after a two-week hiatus prompted by shoulder fatigue, but his stuff looked as firm as it has all season.
Freddy averaged 94.7 mph with his fastball today, which was his second-highest average in any appearance this season.
Perdomo’s injury effectively ends his first season with the Brewers. Multiple ailments limited him to just 14 big-league appearances.
When he did take the mound for the Brewers, Perdomo posted a 3.80 ERA in 23 2⁄3 with a stellar 62.5% ground ball rate and 3.1% walk rate. However, poor strikeout and home run rates offset some of those bright spots.
Perdomo worked 3 1⁄3 scoreless innings of efficient relief in his last outing of the year after Eric Lauer’s short start on Friday night.
