Meanwhile, Hernan Perez's locker at Comerica Park was empty on Saturday, a day after the Tigers optioned him to Double-A Erie to make room for Jose Iglesias on the 25-man roster. Perez could potentially be recalled to take Peralta's spot on the roster if Peralta is suspended and doesn't appeal.
The locker cleaning doesn't necessarily mean Perez isn't sticking around for the time being. The Erie SeaWolves are in New Britain, Conn., through Sunday and begin their next homestand Tuesday night, so Perez could still wait to report. He just can't work out with the Tigers for now.
