Injury Update On Brewers Talented Young Starter

This is good news.

Milwaukee Brewers starter Freddy Peralta has "no injury concerns" leading into camp, according to Adam McCalvy of

McCalvy reportedly got this quote after questions were raised about Peralta's status following his absence from the Team Dominican Republic roster for the World Baseball Classic.

Brewers general manager Matt Arnold said, "While we certainly appreciate Freddy's enthusiasm to pitch for his country, we believe it to be in the best interest of Freddy and the team to have him in Major League camp. Freddy is a highly valuable part of our pitching staff, and we look forward to an outstanding season from him."

As a result, Peralta will spend the entire spring with the Brewers as he looks to bounce back this season.

The twenty-six-year-old took a step back last season, recording a 3.58 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 86 strikeouts over 78 innings and 17 starts. However, his drop in production may have been a result of the injuries he was dealing with.

A healthy Peralta should be fun to watch this season.
