MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers have signed right-handed pitcher Freddy Peralta to a five-year contract through 2024 with club options for 2025 and 2026.
“We are happy to announce that we have reached a multi-year extension with Freddy that can keep him in a Brewers uniform for the better part of this decade,” said Stearns. “During the initial stages of his career, Freddy has demonstrated numerous qualities that we believe will make him a quality Major League pitcher for years to come. His talent combined with his intellect and work ethic give him a great base from which to build.”
Peralta, 23, was acquired from Seattle on Dec. 9, 2015 as part of a four-player trade in which first baseman Adam Lind was sent to the Mariners. He has gone 13-7 with a 4.79 ERA in 55 games (22 starts) in his Major League career, all with Milwaukee (2018-19), while holding opponents to a .221 batting average with 211 strikeouts in just 163.1 innings pitched.
