Wily peralta 2014 highlights
Peralta grew up in Samana, Dominican Republic, but moved to Santo Domingo when he was 11 in order to train with his uncle. He did not own a baseball glove until he was 11 years old. He practiced his throwing with a lemon.
Peralta was signed by the Brewers as a free agent in 2006. He played his first professional season in America for the rookie-level Arizona League Brewers that season. After sitting out the 2007 season, he returned in 2008, playing for the rookie-league Helena Brewers and Class A West Virginia Power. Peralta played for the Class A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in 2009. He split the 2010 season between the Class A-Advanced Brevard County Manatees and Double-A Huntsville Stars. He was added to the Brewers' 40-man roster following the season.
Peralta began the 2011 season with Huntsville. He was promoted to the Triple-A Nashville Sounds late in the season.
Major League Baseball
The Brewers promoted Peralta to the major league roster on April 21, 2012, to replace Kameron Loe. Peralta started his first Major League game on September 5, 2012, against the Miami Marlins. On July 9, 2013, Peralta pitched his first career complete game against the Cincinnati Reds, the first complete game pitched by a Brewers pitcher since April 5, 2011 by Yovani Gallardo. In 2013, Peralta opened the season in the Brewers rotation. For the season, Peralta went 11-15 with a 4.37 ERA and 2 complete games. Peralta had his career season in 2014, winning 17 games and sporting a career low 3.53 ERA in 32 starts. The following season was an unhealthy season for Peralta, as he had an extended DL stint, only managing 20 starts. In 2016, Peralta battled with inconsistency and injuries for a second straight season, as he finished 7-11 with a 4.86 ERA in 23 starts.
After a rough start to the 2017 season, Peralta was shifted to the bullpen. He was designated for assignment on July 28th. For the season, Peralta appeared in 19 games, 8 starts with an ERA of 7.85 for Milwaukee.
