Biloxi Shuckers fans will get a chance to watch a Major Leaguer in action on Thursday night at MGM Park.
Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta will be the starter for the Shuckers at 7:10 p.m. Thursday when the Shuckers host the Chattanooga Lookouts.
It will be Peralta's second rehab start in the minors this season after he faced 10 batters in 2.2 innings at Single-A Wisconsin on Saturday. He gave up one earned run on two hits and struck out four in the appearance.
The Brewers placed Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique on May 25.
Never miss a local story.

Peralta's career record is 31-32 with a 3.82 ERA in 78 starts.
His 17 wins in 2014 ranked fifth in the National League.
The Shuckers host Chattanooga to start a seven-game home stand at 7:10 p.m. tonight.
