Brewers claim Hernan Perez off waivers
So in the midst of the Daniel Fields call-up, the Tigers apparently have more roster upheaval, as the awkward roster situation with Hernan Perez comes to an end. The Brewers claimed the utility infielder off waivers from Detroit this afternoon.
Perez was out of minor-league options, which played a part in the Tigers taking the former top-10 prospect on their Opening Day roster. Another part, too, was the extra insurance of another infielder capable of playing shortstop with Jose Iglesias coming back from a lost season. But Iglesias has been fine, leaving little playing time for Perez, and the rust showed in his bat.
The 24-year-old Perez batted just 2-for-33 with a walk and 11 strikeouts this year. He started all over the infield, but still started in just seven games.
