They’ve still not decided if they’ll activate him.

But the Tigers will bring Jhonny Peralta their suspended shortstop back to begin pregame workouts starting Wednesday.

Peralta will be eligible to work out every day wherever the Tigers are until the gates of the stadium open.

Before his first workout however he’ll address the team then the media.

“He’s not eligible to be activated until the last weekend of the season” Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said. “But starting tomorrow he’ll take some ground balls some fly balls and do some hitting

“But no decision has been made beyond that whether he’ll be activated.

“I will say this that he has been told that he’s not coming back as our every-day shortstop. But there really is an obligation to giving him a chance to come back.

“We’ll make the baseball decision later. But he will join our Instructional League team at some point. That first workout is the 19th.

“I don’t know if he’ll join them for the workouts or just when the games begin which will be on the 23rd.”

Peralta was suspended 50 games Aug. 5 and accepted the suspension for making what he called “a terrible mistake” that linked him with Biogenesis the clinic associated with Major League Baseball’s performance-enhancing drug scandal. He’s eligible to return Sept. 27 for the Tigers’ final three regular-season games in Miami.

At the time of his suspension Peralta said “I take full responsibility for my actions have no excuses for my lapse in judgment and I accept my suspension.”

Dombrowski said at the time “He broke the rules has to pay for it and we support that totally.”
