The Detroit Tigers must be hoping they can get Jhonny Peralta back to where he was two years ago, because he's been a below-average player for more than a season and a half since the long-delayed move off shortstop. Peralta isn't without talent; the first year Cleveland trained in Arizona, I was at a game in Phoenix with a number of pro scouts who hadn't seen the team and after Peralta smoked two line drives, several of the scouts were asking me about him because of how much they liked his bat.
