WASHINGTON (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Wily Peralta is ``iffy'' to make his next start because of a strained left hamstring, and Ryan Braun might be back earlier than expected after a good round of hitting in the batting cage.
Peralta was able to work out in the weight room and play some catch Wednesday, a day after the hamstring injury forced him from the game in the sixth inning of a win over the Washington Nationals.
Manager Ron Roenicke said the injury doesn't seem to be serious. Still, the manager said it is ``iffy'' that Peralta will start as scheduled Sunday.
Roenicke was heartened by Braun's indoor hitting session Tuesday, saying it's a ``possibility'' that the slugger could return from a thumb injury before the All-Star break.
