Peralta deal reportedly close

The long process of Jhonny Peralta’s contract extension might finally be nearing a conclusion. Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports the two sides are close to a two-year deal worth $11.25 million.

Peralta told MLB.com Friday morning that he did not believe anything was completed yet, but he was optimistic they could get a deal completed in the coming days.
“I don’t think there’s anything yet,” Peralta said by phone. “But in a couple more days my agent will call me and see what I think [about] what they’re offering. More than anything, I think we’ll be getting close to [re-signing with] the Detroit Tigers.”
Rojas cites a source close to the negotiations saying the two sides need to finish up some details to complete the deal, but that it should be completed shortly.
