Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta missed nearly two months earlier this summer with a left oblique strain and came down with renewed discomfort in that muscle after yielding eight hits and six earned runs in 4 2/3 innings to the Cubs on Monday night at Wrigley Field.

We won’t see any more of the 26-year-old starter over the final 11 days of the regular season …

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweeted Wednesday evening that he’s getting the vibe the Brewers were upset about Peralta’s physical shape this year and want him to work hard on it over the winter. Peralta will finish with an ugly 4.72 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 60/37 K/BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings.

He had a promising 3.53 ERA and 154/61 K/BB ratio in 198 2/3 innings last year.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
