Recommended Pickup
Wily Peralta, P, MIL: Maybe Peralta's eight two-hit innings against the Mets on Sunday convinced you to look into picking up Peralta. If not, how about the 2011 NL MVP's opinion on how good the rookie pitcher can be? When asked about Peralta, Brewers' outfielder Ryan Braun said, "I look at his stuff, I don't know how he's not the top prospect in baseball."

Peralta has improved in each of his three starts this season, going from six innings and three earned runs to six innings and one earned run to his latest phenomenal start. It won't be easy to top his start against the Mets. Still, Peralta has been the top prospect in the Brewers system and has made a case that he can be a very effective starter at the major league level right now. With just two weeks left on the season, he could help put a fantasy team over the top.
