Jhonny Peralta Joining Tigers Friday

Tigers_Jhonny_Peralta_2013They need his power in the bottom half of the lineup. They need his bat.

So the Detroit Tigers are bringing Jhonny Peralta back for the final three games of the season, and probably for the postseason as well.

But they’re bringing him back as a left-fielder, not as a shortstop.

Creating roster room for Peralta by transferring infielder Danny Worth to the 60-day disabled list, Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski announced Wednesday that Peralta will rejoin the team Friday, on its final stop of the regular season in Miami.
