Debut Details
September 4 in a 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. The third of five pitchers on the night, he tossed one hitless inning, walking one and striking out one. Out of 17 pitches thrown, 10 were for strikes. The first two batters he faced, Kolten Wong and Carlos Martinez, both popped out to second base before Matt Carpenter drew a walk. Peralta then struck out Jedd Gyorko swinging on three off-speed pitches.

Player Notes
Peralta has spent his entire seven-year career in the Cincinnati system yet this year marked his Triple-A debut, and he made the most of it. He’s switched roles back and forth between starting and relief a few times over the years. In 2015 at Pensacola as a starter he was 7-7 with a 5.09 ERA, striking out 80 while walking 60 in 117 innings, but he lowered his season ERA in half in his move back to relief this past season.
