Freddy Peralta was activated from the injured list and will start against the Rockies.

In addition, reliever Taylor Williams was recalled from Triple-A while relievers Jacob Barnes and Donnie Hart, both of whom pitched in Wednesday’s loss, were sent to San Antonio.

Peralta has a 7.13 ERA over four starts with Milwaukee, with a 1.528 WHIP and 11.2 K/9. He last pitched April 15 before landing on the IL due to inflammation in his right SC joint.

Williams began the year with the Brewers but was optioned to Triple-A on April 7. He allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings with Milwaukee, but in eight games for San Antonio has a 2.00 ERA over nine innings.
