Jhonny Peralta to join team Friday
General manager Dave Dombrowski said Wednesday in Minnesota that Peralta will join the AL Central leaders in Miami on Friday for a season-ending three-game series. Dombrowski said the organization has not discussed whether Peralta will be on the postseason roster.
Peralta's 50-game penalty, part of Major League Baseball's investigation into the Biogenesis clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs, was completed Wednesday. The All-Star shortstop has been working out in left field because the Tigers acquired shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston shortly before the ban took effect.
