Brewers' Elvis Peguero: Lands on injured list
Peguero was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to Sept. 17, with a right elbow effusion, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.
It's unclear when the injury first surfaced for Peguero, but he hasn't pitched since he delivered 1.1 scoreless frames Saturday against Washington. The right-hander will miss the rest of the regular season but will be eligible to return in the playoffs, which the Brewers are undoubtedly hoping for given his 3.38 ERA and 21 holds in 59 outings this year....

Brewers' Elvis Peguero: Getting back on track
Peguero tossed a scoreless eighth inning in Monday's 12-1 victory over the Rockies.
Peguero was preparing to enter the game with the Brewers ahead by only four runs, so don't let the fact that he worked in a blowout lead you to believe he is no longer part of Milwaukee's late-inning mix. Peguero gave up three earned runs twice in late July, but he seems to have righted the ship, allowing just one runner to reach base through three outings in August. He remains the top right-handed option in front of setup man Joel Payamps and closer Devin Williams.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Elvis Peguero: Earns extra-inning save
Peguero picked up his first career save Sunday against the Guardians after striking out two and not allowing a hit in the 10th inning.
Peguero was awarded a save opportunity in the 10th after Devin Williams pitched a perfect ninth to send the game to extra innings. The 26-year-old started off the frame with back-to-back strikeouts of Jose Ramirez and Josh Naylor and shut the door on the game by getting Myles Straw to foul out. The 26-year-old has been a viable reliver in his first season with the Brewers and now stands at a 2.89 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB to go with five holds and the one save over 28 innings. He's unlikely to see many more save chances moving forward unless Williams is unavailable to pitch.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Elvis Peguero: Picks up first win
Peguero tossed a scoreless 10th inning and picked up the first win of his career in Friday's victory over the Reds.
Peguero hit a batter in his lone inning, but he also kept the Reds off the scoreboard in the bottom of the 10th frame, and he walked away with the win when the Brewers scored two runs to Cincinnati's one in the 11th. Since being recalled by the Brewers in late April, Peguero has allowed two and four earned runs in separate outings, but he has also made 12 scoreless appearances and owns a 2.89 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. As such, his spot in Milwaukee's bullpen seems secure for the time being.... See More ... See Less

The right-hander received his first call-up to the majors Wednesday and made his debut Thursday. The outing did not go well, as Peguero threw only 16 of 31 pitches for strikes and issued three free passes. All five batters he allowed to reach base eventually came around to score, including three who crossed the plate after his departure.
