Source: Peralta, Tigers Near 2-Year Deal

According to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com, the Tigers and shortstop Jhonny Peralta are close to a new 2-year, 11.75 million dollar contract. The 28-year old shortstop hit .249 with 15 homers and 81 RBIs in 2010.

Peralta was acquired by the Tigers prior to the Trade Deadline from the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers declined Peralta's 7 million dollar club option earlier this week as a part of the contract he originally signed with the Indians.
