Peralta headed to instructional league this week

DETROIT (AP) - Jhonny Peralta is expected to leave for the instructional league this week so he can keep working toward rejoining the Detroit Tigers after completing his 50-game suspension. Manager Jim Leyland says Peralta will leave Wednesday for the instructional league in Florida, where he'll play in the outfield. Peralta was Detroit's starting shortstop, but the Tigers acquired Jose Iglesias from Boston just before Peralta was suspended following baseball's investigation into Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. General manager Dave Dombrowski already has said if Peralta returns, it won't be as the team's starting shortstop. Leyland didn't want to speculate on whether Peralta would be part of the roster if the Tigers reach the postseason.
