Actually, it’s not just a HardballTalk app. It’s an app for all of NBC Sports.com’s blogs, including Pro FootballTalk, Pro BasketballTalk, ProHockeyTalk and all the others called “NBC Sports Talk.”  You can get it here.  Word is that the Android app will be ready soon as well, and of course we’ll let you know when that happens. Indeed, given that I myself have a Droid, I’ll eagerly trumpet that once it goes down.

Below is a screen shot of what the app looks like.  Wonder of wonder. Miracle of miracles.

The Brewers announced on Tuesday that reliever Boone Logan has been designated for assignment and starter Freddy Peralta has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Peralta will start on Tuesday evening against the Pirates, opposite Jameson Taillon at PNC Park.

Logan, 33, has struggled this season, serving up seven runs on 15 hits and 10 walks with 14 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. The lefty inked a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Brewers in January, but he missed the first six weeks of the season with a triceps injury.

Peralta, 22, made his major league debut last month, making a stellar start against the Rockies at Coors Field. He struck out 13 batters over 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He made another, less successful start against the Twins before heading back to the minors. With Colorado Springs, Peralta owns a 2.75 ERA with 84 strikeouts and 27 walks over 59 innings.
