Why Bet On Brewers’ Starter Freddy Peralta To Carry The Day For Milwaukee?

Leading the charge for the Brew Crew is none other than the right-handed flamethrower, Freddy Peralta. This guy was on a tear last season, racking up strikeouts like they were going out of style.

Peralta didn’t pitch much in 2022 because of injuries, tossing only 17 starts in 18 outings. but he stayed healthy in 2023 and pitched more than ever before, setting career highs in starts with 30 and innings pitched with 165.2. Peralta made it a point to establish himself as one of the best pitchers in the league at striking out batters with a 30.9% SO rate and a .211 batting average against.

Peralta’s home run rate did see an increase last season, doubling from his 2022 numbers at 1.4 HRs per every nine innings pitched, leading to his ERA taking a turn for the worse as well, finishing at 3.86 for the season.

Still, with season projections showing signs of Peralta being able to cut down on his home run rate, the potential for a positive progression in 2024 are strong enough to back him as Milwaukee’s initial ace for the season.


What Are The Odds On José Quintana and the Mets For a W at home?

But let’s not sell the Mets short here, folks. They’ve got their own ace up their sleeve with the crafty lefty, Jose Quintana, taking the mound. Quintana had a bit of a rough go last year after joining the Mets, missing the first half of the season due to a stress fracture to his left fifth rib right after joining the team in their spring training practices.

After missing the first half of the season, Quintana would make a comeback in the second half, pitching a total of 75.2 innings with a 3.57 era and 60 K’s. But when he was on the field, he was dealing, posting a solid 3.57 ERA and racking up 60 strikeouts in just 75.2 innings of work.

Now in 2024, with a clean bill of health, and entering a season where he needs to pop off from the get-go if he wishes to keep Mets fans off his back, Quintana will surely be hitting the mound with one letter on his mind, “W”.

With the action set to pop off on Thursday, who’s going to come out on top in this heavyweight bout? Will Peralta’s electric stuff be too much for the Mets to handle, or will Quintana’s guile and experience give the Brewers fits? Only one way to find out, tune in at 1:10 PM ET for the first pitch. And again, remember, if you can’t catch it on TV, no worries – fire up that MLB.tv stream and get ready for some Opening Day fireworks!
