The Brewers weren't sure what to expect from Wily Peralta when they summoned him from Triple-A Nashville in early September. The 23-year-old righthander began the year as the organization's top-rated prospect but struggled with his command, leading to an uneven season that had club officials worried. In 28 starts for Nashville, Peralta went 7-11, 4.66 with 143 strikeouts and 78 walks over 147 innings.
