Milwaukee Brewers All-Star right-hander Freddy Peralta was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder.
Peralta experienced discomfort during Wednesday’s start against the St. Louis Cardinals and left after striking out on an awkward swing to end the top of the third inning. He allowed three runs and five hits in two innings.
It is possible that the 25-year-old Peralta will miss just one start as the Brewers have recently been using a six-man rotation.
Peralta is 9-3 with a 2.45 ERA in 22 starts and one relief appearance this season. He has struck out 164 and given up just 63 hits over 121 1/3 innings.
Peralta has a 25-11 record and 3.81 ERA in 93 appearances (45 starts) since joining the Brewers in 2018.
Milwaukee recalled left-hander Hoby Milner from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move. Milner has a 4.97 ERA in 12 relief appearances with the Brewers.
The Brewers also sent first baseman Daniel Vogelbach (foot) to Nashville on a minor league rehab stint. He is batting .216 with seven homers and 16 RBIs in 67 games with Milwaukee.
Milwaukee holds a 9 1/2-game lead over the Cincinnati Reds in the National League Central.
