Major League pitcher to make rehab appearance with Shuckers

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. 

Peralta's numbers took a dip this season along with the rest of the Brewers at 1-5 with a 4.00 ERA in nine starts.

Peralta had a breakout season in 2014 for the Brewers with a 17-11 record and 3.53 ERA in 32 starts.

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.
