MLB Injury News:
Right-hander Wily Peralta seemed to be doing just fine a day after being forced out in the sixth inning against the Washington Nationals with a strained left hamstring according to Milwaukee Brewers beat writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Todd Rosiak.
Peralta said the last time he had a hamstring issue, in 2010, he didn't miss any significant time because of it. That was also an injury to his left hamstring.
"It's better," Peralta said Wednesday. "Been getting a lot of stretching, to loosen it up."
Manager Ron Roenicke, who's already dealt with more than his fair share of injuries to his starting rotation this season, was understandably glad to hear Peralta was doing OK.
"With hamstrings, you're always hoping it's not really a pull and then next day all of a sudden, (Jim) Henderson's is bad, (Marco) Estrada's is bad — and he's still going on with that thing," Roenicke said.
"Wily, he was just in the weight room getting in some work. So that tells me he's doing pretty good. He was out here playing catch. Felt a little bit of tightness, but other than that pretty good."
Peralta, who has shown flashes this season of becoming a rotation mainstay, is seemingly going to be proceeded with caution by the Brewers.
Spectacular matching up against Washington's Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday, Peralta gave up merely three hits and two walks while striking out five in 5 and 1/3 shutout innings.
When asked if he'll tread lightly with Peralta's return, "I think so," Roenicke responded. "Even though you still have the roster thing and you're a guy short if he doesn't make his next start, to put him back out there if you don't think he's 100 percent, I don't think we'll do that."
Tyler Thornburg would be a likely candidate to replace him assuming Peralta will be held out of his next start, which is still undecided.
Peralta is 5-9 with a 5.27 earned run average in 18 starts.

Besides a rough stretch in May, Kyle Lohse has been exactly what the Milwaukee Brewers expected when they signed him a week before the season started.
Two days after having a start cut short due to a rain delay, Lohse was at his best Wednesday evening in Washington. A solo home run was the only blemish on his line, as Lohse worked eight strong innings in Milwaukee's 4-1 win...

The promotions that minor league teams use to draw fans are frequently a source of wonder and bemusement. Next month, the Phillies AAA team will give away a free funeral.

After the Milwaukee Brewers rallied to tie the game in the seventh inning Thursday, Ron Roenicke would have loved to turn the game over to John Axford, Jim Henderson and Francisco Rodriguez.
But because short starts by starting pitchers have caused Roenicke to turn to his main bullpen cogs quite a bit lately, the Brewers were trying to stay away from the trio.
MILWAUKEE -- When a pitcher is 6-foot-9 and throwing 96 mph, the first thing that comes to mind is strikeouts and lots of them.
Milwaukee Brewers rookie right-hander Johnny Hellweg is 6-foot-9 and throws that hard, but he isn't a strikeout pitcher; not anymore. In a concerted effort to pitch to contact, Hellweg has shifted his focus to trying to get outs earlier in the count...

"He still feels it a little bit, so we can't have him...

As we approach the trading deadline, anybody who has a keyboard will be coming up with trade ideas for the New York Mets. The truth is, I try to stay away from the “rumor” machine because I feel like I’ve learned my lesson with getting enthralled in things that never actually happen.
The Mets are in an interesting position because so much of what they do moving forward depends...
