Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta left his most recent start with tightness in his side and the Brewers announced today that he’s going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell initially expressed optimism that Peralta wouldn’t have to miss a start, but he told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com today that he’ll be out at least four weeks. No decision has been made on his replacement for Wednesday against the Giants, but right-hander Michael Blazek is one possibility for the assignment.

Through nine starts this season, the 26-year-old Peralta owns a 4.00 ERA and 35/14 K/BB ratio in 54 innings.
