MLB Injury News:
, the surprising September call-up for the Milwaukee Brewers felt tightness in his biceps Thursday and was pulled from the game. However, he received good news Friday when the results of his MRI came back negative. There is no structural damage shown on the MRI, and he has not experienced soreness in the biceps area.
According to Yahoo! Sports
, Peralta could make his next scheduled start Tuesday against the San Diego Padres. The Brewers will be very cautious with the 23-year old righty, and if there is any sign of an issue, they will not send him out there.
Peralta has been fantastic since coming up in September. He actually made his debut in April of this year, but was sent back to Triple-A. He has made a total of five starts this season and has a 2.48 ERA. In his last five appearances, all starts in September since being called up, Peralta has given up three or fewer runs in each game. The Brewers are understandably excited about what Peralta can bring to their organization.
Earlier this season, the Brewers traded ace Zack Greinke
to the Los Angeles Angels. They did not expect to compete this year., but they do plan on reloading. Pitchers like Peralta can help with that effort. And it turns out the Brewers have been able to compete late in the year. Their surge still has them mathematically alive in the Wild Card. The Brewers trail the St. Louis Cardinals by five games with five to play.
While a play-off berth this season is very unlikely, the Brewers have shown some life. Peralta, if he can continue his success, could be a big part of the team's plans going forward. His service time clock just started ticking when he was called up this year so the Brewers will have him under team control for a long time.

According to the Associated Press, Hart had been battling the injury for a while now and was in a...
