Peralta to start in left field tomorrow
After the Tigers put Jhonny Peralta on their Division Series roster, then struggled offensively through two games, you had a feeling this was coming. It was more a matter of when.
Jhonny Peralta will start in left field at Comerica Park for Game 3 Monday afternoon. It’s a risky move for multiple reasons, but at this point, it’s one Jim Leyland’s willing to make to try to spark his moribund offense.
Peralta is just 1-for-9 off Oakland starter Jarrod Parker. Andy Dirks is 3-for-11, but his hitting the last few weeks has shown even favorable matchups have betrayed him.
