Injuries are continuing to be a thorn in the Brewers side as starting pitcher Wily Peralta will head to the 15-day with a groin strain that will keep him out for four weeks. Peralta had to leave his last start earlier due to the groin injury, and despite the optimism shown by Brewers manager Craig Counsell, Peralta won’t be pitching for a month.
The Brewers have recalled right-handed relief pitcher David Goforth from Triple-A Coloardo Springs to take Peralta’s spot on the roster. Even Peralta himself is surprised he is headed to the disabled list.
“I didn’t think I’d be on the DL,” said Peralta. “Four to six weeks is a long time to be out. It’s tough, but it is what it is and I have to move forward and help them try to finish the season strong.”
Peralta’s next start was scheduled for Wednesday versus the Giants which of course won’t happen, and Counsell has an idea of who will start but it isn’t official yet.
“We’re still going to wait one more day,” Counsell said. “There’s a possibility Mike Fiers might start on short rest, or Mike Blazek. We’ll decide.”
Peralta is 1-5 this season with a 4.00 earned run average and 34 strikeouts along with 14 walks in 54 innings of work.
