Freddie Peralta is one of the top young pitchers in all of baseball.
He exploded on the scene with the Milwaukee Brewers and became a key member of a rotation that already includes Brandon Woodruff and last year’s NL Cy Young Award winner, Corbin Burns.
He made a good start in 2022, going 3-1 in seven starts with a 3.53 ERA.
He started last night’s game against the Atlanta Braves and pitched quite well.
He dominated seven scoreless innings, walking just two and was out for 10.
10 strikeouts at night brought him to the 500 for his career, a milestone that brewers congratulated him on Twitter after the game.
10 Ks and a milestone.

A major milestone
What a night for Peralta!
Remember, Peralta is only 25 years old.
He has only come up since 2018.
He hasn’t been in it for very long, yet he’s already one of the top three starters in the Brewers rotation.
The 500 strikeout is a huge milestone for any pitcher, but it is impressive for him to do so at just 25.
You can’t help but feel good for her.
He’s a young pitcher with a ton of reverse and great things.
Last night was the night of his career.
10 strikeouts in seven shutout innings is something he will remember for a lifetime, especially since it has brought him 500 strikeouts of his career.
He may be overshadowed by Burns and Woodruff, but Peralta is just as deadly and a force to be reckoned with in that loaded Milwaukee rotation.
He’s one of the main reasons the Brewers are in first place at NL Central, and if he continues to pitch like this, no one would want to face the Brewers during the post-season.
