Sunday's series finale against the Washington Nationals went downhill fast for the Milwaukee Brewers. All-Star pitcher Freddy Perlata was forced to leave the game in the third frame, and Milwaukee ended up trailing 8-0 one inning after Peralta's departure.

Now fans will anxiously await an update on the hurler, but it seems the 26-year-old is dealing with a concerning injury.

Freddy Peralta Injury Update

Bally Sports' Sophia Minnaert said Peralta left Sunday's game after pointing behind his right shoulder. There's no word on the specific injury just yet, but the 2021 All-Star hurting his throwing arm is far from ideal.

Peralta was off to a strong start this season, posting a 3-1 record across seven starts (35.2 innings) along with a 3.53 ERA and 48 strikeouts.

The Brewers' starting rotation has once again been a huge part of their success. Milwaukee is tied for the fourth-best team ERA (3.34) in the majors and is holding opponents to the second-lowest batting average (.215).

Hopefully, Peralta isn't forced to miss significant time and his early exit helped prevent a more serious injury from occurring. The Brewers will need him if they're to maintain their lead current 3.5-game lead in the NL Central.
