Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta is very comfortable pitching to C Martin Maldonado from their time together in the minors and because of their ability to speak in Spanish. Maldonado got the starting nod behind the plate over C Jonathan Lucroy Sunday, July 21, with Peralta on the bump. Peralta allowed two hits over eight innings against the Miami Marlins for his fourth straight excellent outing. "He has (top-of-rotation) ability," manager Ron Roenicke said. "The difference is going to be the mental side of it. Is he able to really run his own ballgame? Is he able to bounce back when he has a bad inning? The good ones, they all do it."
Peralta's recent success has been attributed to better control and the fact that he's also been able to control his emotions while pitching. He recorded most of his seven strikeouts Sunday on his slider, and he kept his 96 mph heater down in the zone. Roenicke doesn't expect Maldonado to be Peralta's personal catcher forever, however, but it appears the club will use that arrangement for the time being.

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he is not sure who he would consider to be the team's third catcher. Both of the catchers on the 40-man roster (Jonathan Lucroy and Martin Maldonado) will miss a portion of spring training camp because of the World Baseball Classic. The Brewers' other catchers in major league camp (Dayton Buller, Anderson De La Rosa, Blake Lalli, Rafael Neda and Adam Weisenburger) are all non-roster invitees, with Lalli being the only one with prior MLB experience.
