Jhonny Peralta to work out with Tigers Wednesday, team issues statement



Tuesday night club announced that suspended shortstop Jhonny Peralta would work out with the team prior to their series finale with the Chicago White Sox  on Wednesday.

Here’s the official statement from the Tigers:

“In accordance with the protocols outlined by Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement, Jhonny Peralta will join the club for workouts in Chicago beginning on Wednesday. There has been no decision made regarding Peralta’s return to the active roster. It is an organizational decision to allow Jhonny to workout with the club in order to see if it will be in the best interest of the team to have him return at the end of his suspension.”

Peralta was suspended 50 games for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. And although it hasn’t been determined if he’ll be added to roster once he’s eligible to return on September 27th in Miami, Peralta’s presence with the now is a pretty good indication he’ll be brought back.
