According to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke "hinted strongly" that Wily Peralta will make the team's rotation.
"Peralta has a huge upside," Roenicke said. "If he pitches like he did a few of those games last year, he's got a huge upside." Only Yovani Gallardo and Marco Estrada are locked into rotation spots for the Brewers, and Chris Narveson seems likely to have a spot as long as he's healthy. Michael Fiers, Mark Rogers and Peralta are the main competitors to round out the rotation. Peralta had an up-and-down year at Triple-A Nashville in 2012, posting a 4.66 ERA over 28 starts, but he held a 2.48 mark in 29 innings for the big club. The 23-year-old holds mixed league intrigue should he crack the Opening Day rotation.
