Peralta's velocity was down during a loss at Cleveland, but he insisted he felt 100 percent. That led pitching coach Rick Kranitz to suspect a case of dead arm. The Brewers will carefully monitor Peralta before this start.

Hammel had to deal with Clayton Kershaw in his last start, and blinked in the sixth when he walked two of the first three batters. Both would score. Other than that, it was a good outing. He has a 5.44 ERA in his last seven starts.
