Milwaukee Brewers place RHP Freddy Peralta on IL, closer Josh Hader on family emergency list

2 Min Read

MILWAUKEE — The Brewers placed right-hander Freddy Peralta on the 15-day injured list with a right lat strain Monday and put closer Josh Hader on the family medical emergency list.

Milwaukee filled their places on the roster by recalling right-handers Trevor Kelley and Miguel Sanchez from Triple-A Nashville. The moves come as the Brewers began a season-high 11-game, 10-day road trip Sunday at San Diego.

Peralta left the Brewers’ 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals on Sunday in the fourth inning with tightness in the upper area of ​​his shoulder. Manager Craig Counsell said after Sunday’s game that Peralta would go on the injured list and undergo an MRI on Monday.

“I was feeling it a little bit earlier, but that inning it got worse,” Peralta said after the game. “That’s why I made the decision to let them know and why I came out of the game.”

Peralta, who turns 26 on June 4, is 3-2 with a 4.42 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 38⅔ innings this season. He made the All-Star team last year and went 10-5 with a 2.81 ERA and 195 strikeouts in 144⅓ innings.

Hader, 28, who is off to a spectacular start, has allowed five walks, two hits and no runs in 15 appearances. He has struck out 21 batters in 13⅔ innings. Opponents are batting .045 against him.

The three-time All-Star has converted 29 consecutive save opportunities, the longest active streak in the majors. His last blown save came July 7 against the New York Mets.
