PHOENIX — While the Milwaukee Brewers lost 9-3 to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, they will also lose starter Junior Guerra to the disabled list with right elbow inflammation.
Wily Peralta has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Guerra’s spot in the rotation Tuesday night against the Atlanta Braves. The inflammation occurred Wednesday against the San Diego Padres, in which Guerra lasted four innings and gave up four earned runs in a 12-3 loss. Guerra has yet to officially be placed on the DL.
Guerra is one of Milwaukee bright spots this season, having thrown 107 and 1/3 innings with a 2.93 ERA — the best of any Milwaukee starter. Peralta had the league’s worse ERA of 6.68 before being sent to the Skysox on June 12. Since then, he’s logged a 6.31 ERA in 41 and 1/3 innings.
The Brewers lost to the Diamondbacks Sunday afternoon after Jimmy Nelson failed to make it into the fifth inning for his third straight outing. He allowed seven hits and six earned runs, while walking three and hitting two batters.
