Originally written September 26, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
In taking the 50-game suspension offered by Major League baseball, no one knew for sure if Jhonny Peralta would play another game for the Detroit Tigers this season.  His involvement in the Biogenesis scandal was embarrassing, so while he would be eligible to return before the season was over, the Tigers could have chosen to do what the San Francisco Giants did last year with Melky Cabrera.  They are not making that choice.  Peralta will be activated Friday. Dave Dombrowski: Jhonny Peralta will be activated for the game Friday. — Chris Iott (@Chris_Iott) September 25, 2013 The Tigers went out and acquired Jose Iglesias when the suspension was looming, and Iglesias has done a nice job.  Therefore, Peralta may be moved to the outfield if the team intends to continue using Iglesias at shortstop.  Iglesias, though, is battling a badly bruised hand.  He is expected to be ready for the playoffs. Peralta has been a big part of the Tigers' offense in the past, but the team has had to do without him for a large chunk of the season.  After taking a deal from Major League Baseball, Peralta simply served his suspension quietly and is now ready to make his return. This season, Peralta is hitting .305/.361/.461.  He made his second career All-Star Game this season.  In 11 Major League seasons, Peralta is a .268/.330/.425 hitter.
