Mets, Brewers send down Saturday starters Verrett, Peralta
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Mets and Brewers have sent down their starting pitchers from their game Saturday, with New York's Logan Verrett and Milwaukee's Wily Peralta each headed to their club's Triple-A affiliates.
Verrett was 3-4 with a 4.02 ERA in 19 games for the Mets, including four starts. He allowed five runs and four hits in a four-inning start in a 7-4 loss to the Brewers.
The Mets recalled right-hander Erik Goeddel to add a fresh arm to the bullpen for Sunday's series finale.
Milwaukee sent down its opening day starter in demoting Peralta, who got the win Saturday after giving up five hits and three runs in five innings.
Matt Garza is expected to be activated from the disabled list this week to take Peralta's spot in the rotation.
