Report: Tigers' Peralta to be reinstated Friday

The SportsXchange

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta will complete his 50-game suspension and rejoin the team on Friday, according to CBSSports.com.

Tigers general manager David Dombrowski confirmed Peralta's activation, according to a tweet by MLB.com's Jason Beck.

Peralta has been out for nearly two months after Major League Baseball suspended him for his role in the Biogenesis scandal.

At this juncture, although the Tigers have not confirmed it, Peralta would likely be eligible to be part of the team's postseason roster.

Because his role at shortstop has been taken by Jose Iglesias, Peralta could potentially platoon in left field with Andy Dirks.

Prior to his suspension, Peralta, 31, was hitting .305 in 104 games.
