Tigers, Peralta Close To Completing New Deal

SUNDAY, 5:01pm: Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports confirms that Peralta and the Tigers are on the verge of finalizing a deal worth approximately $11MM. A major league source expects the team to announce the signing within the next week.

SATURDAY, 3:12pm: The Tigers and infielder Jhonny Peralta are close to completing a two-year deal worth $11.25MM, reports Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes. Rojas' source says the two sides are just finishing up some minor details.

Detroit acquired the 28-year-old Peralta from the Indians at this year's trade deadline. He performed admirably with his new team, hitting .253/.314/.396 with eight homers in 242 plate appearances while moving back to shortstop. Rojas says the Tigers intend to use Peralta at short, unsurprising given Brandon Inge's new deal.

The Tigers declined their $7.25MM option on Peralta earlier this week, though both sides expressed a desire to keep the relationship going.
