In order to make room for the newly-acquired Jhonny Peralta, the Tigers had to send someone down to Triple-A Toledo. The odd man out this time around was Scott Sizemore, who was just recently recalled to Detroit to help fill in for Brandon Inge.
With Peralta now on the team and likely to play a lot of third base for the Tigers, it was not necessary to keep Sizemore around, especially since Peralta was on his way to Tropicana Field earlier today.
Peralta was in transit to Tropicana Field this morning and was not expected to arrive until just before game time (12:10 p.m.) in the Tigers' series finale against Tampa Bay. He was not immediately part of manager Jim Leyland's starting lineup.
My guess is we will get our first look at Peralta as a Tiger tomorrow night in Boston.
