Peralta’s new tack

Jhonny Peralta returned from a 50-game suspension Friday night, starting in left field for the Detroit Tigers against the Miami Marlins. That’s right, the career infielder is trying a new position in an effort to earn a spot on Detroit’s postseason roster. And Peralta is so excited to be back that he’s fine with the change. “This is an emotional day for me,” Peralta said. “This is where I want to be. I want to be back with the team, helping in any way I can.” Peralta was suspended for 50 games as part of baseball’s investigation into Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. He played 104 games at shortstop before the punishment, but Jose Iglesias took over at that position while he was out. – Associated Press
