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.

I guess Daniel Fields was not on the 40 man roster so Fields took Perez’ roster spot?

Fields was on the 40 man roster. There must be another move to the 25 man roster. Fields was coming up to take Rajai’s spot while he is on paternity leave.

Looks like they did it to keep Kyle Ryan in the bullpen. Simon will be activated tonight, which is the corresponding move for Perez.

Wagner: Word is @MudHens are getting @BrendanHarris23 from @erie_seawolves. Not sure if he replaces Fields, promoted to #Tigers, or someone else.

Josh Wilson called up, Farmer optioned. Verlander comes back

Reading between the lines, this situation sounds like a vote of confidence for Machado to me. Maybe the Tigers value him as more than trade bait. Possibly as the eventual successor to Kinsler?
