Beck’s Blog broke the story that the Tigers are close to signing Jhonny Peralta to a two year deal for $11.25 million. I like the amount because it pretty much shores up the infield, gives the Tigers a solid shortstop option and still gives them plenty of cash to go out and get a big name. As it stands, this is what the infield will probably look like
1b – Miguel Cabrera
2b – Scott Sizemore/Wil Rhymes
SS – Jhonny Peralta
3b – Brandon Inge
And then you have Ramon Santiago to fill in where and when needed. Not too shabby if the Tigers can pull it off.
