Perez's locker cleared as Tigers await word on Peralta

DETROIT -- Jhonny Peralta told MLB.com on Saturday that he hasn't heard anything from Major League Baseball on a possible suspension coming out of its Biogenesis investigation.

A New York Post report Saturday said players have been notified about potential suspensions and have until 6 p.m. ET on Sunday to decide whether to settle or appeal.

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.
