The Tigers have picked up the club options on reliever Octavio Dotel and shortstop Jhonny Peralta for 2013.

The Detroit Tigers have wasted no time starting their offseason moves, and announced on Tuesday that the team has picked up the team options on Octavio Dotel and Jhonny Peralta. Dotel's option is worth $3.5 million for 2013, and Peralta's is worth $6 million. Both players would have been paid $500,000 buyouts if the team had decided against picking up their options.

Dotel had a 5-3 record pitching out of the bullpen for Detroit, with a 3.57 ERA over 57 appearances. He recorded a WHIP of 1.09, and walked only 12 batters over 58 innings pitched. He also recorded an impressive 9.6 strikeouts per nine innings. Dotel became one of the Tigers' more trusted relievers late in the season, and frequently pitched the eighth inning.

Peralta played in 150 games for the Tigers, all but one coming at shortstop. He hit .239 with a .305 on base percentage, with 13 home runs and 63 runs batted in.
