Freddy Peralta to toe rubber in Brewers' third game

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Freddy Peralta will start the Brewers' third regular season game on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs, per manager Craig Counsell.

What It Means:

Counsell indicated that the Brewers won't be implementing traditional starter and reliever roles to begin the year, so Peralta may not have a standard 100-pitch workload or be used every fifth start. The 24-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.79 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with a 30.0 strikeout percentage through 163 1/3 innings.

numberFire's models expect Peralta to record a 4.05 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 52 strikeouts and 17 walks over 37 2/3 innings this season.
