Brewers Starter Gets Injury Update


Freddy Peralta's injury has now been clarified as a teres major muscle strain, Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns confirmed. 

The initial diagnosis, when Peralta was first put on the 15-day injured list, was a posterior shoulder strain. The twenty-six year old has since been transferred to the 60-day injured list. 

The good news, however, is that Peralta recently began throwing and playing catch again on flat ground in Arizona. 

The bad news, is that the pitcher is still not expected back until sometime in August and his role in the Brewers' pitching staff when he returns will be determined closer to that date.

Before the May 22 game, where he left with injury, Peralta was enjoying a solid season posting an ERA of 3.53 and a ridiculous 48 strikeouts in 35 innings. 

The Brewers are working around all their injuries this season, currently sitting first in the National League Central with a 39-31 record.
