  • Wrapping Up the Weekend of Brewers Transactions

    TL Schwerz

    Over the weekend Milwaukee made a handful of transactions that impacted the Major League roster. Starter Freddy Peralta was placed back on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation, and he was joined by Eric Lauer, who’s dealing with left elbow inflammation. Trevor Kelley was recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

    Freddy Peralta was forced from the game during his last start due to shoulder fatigue. Now officially diagnosed as shoulder inflammation, he returns to the IL after originally being placed there back in May. Peralta has been great for the Brewers this year tallying a 3.45 ERA across 15 starts.

    Eric Lauer has been reliable and healthy for Milwaukee this year making 26 starts and pitching 145 innings. His 3.91 ERA is workable and he’s been a solid back-end starter. Now hitting the injured list, it’s all but certain his season could be over. The Brewers will have to piece together their rotation during the season’s final weeks.

    Milwaukee recalled Trevor Kelley to eat innings as a reliever. He returns to a 6.00 ERA across 21 innings this season.

    The developments to the starting rotation are not good for the Brewers. As they try to remain in the hunt for postseason positioning, losing two key arms is quite the blow. Milwaukee has dealt with starting pitching injuries all year, and they’ll have to again juggle the group.
