Tigers exercise options on Jhonny Peralta, Octavio Dotel

Doug Pensinger

The shortstop and reliever will stay in Detroit for 2013.

The Detroit Tigers have exercised the 2013 club options on shortstop Jhonny Peralta and right-hander Octavio Dotel, the team has announced:

With the options, the Tigers will pay Peralta $6 million in 2013 while Dotel will earn $3.5 million. Peralta, 30, hit just .239/.305/.384 with thirteen home runs in one hundred fifty games for the Tigers in 2012, but is Detroit’s simplest option a weak offseason market for shortstops.

Dotel, 38, appeared in fifty-seven games for the Tigers this season, posting a 3.57 ERA and 9.6 K/9 in fifty-eight innings. By staying in Detroit next year, the veteran right-hander -- who has pitched for thirteen different organizations in his fourteen-year career -- will suit up with the same team in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2008-2009.
