Tigers | Jhonny Peralta working with strength coach

Detroit Tigers SS Jhonny Peralta is working with a strength coach this offseason in the Dominican Republic to improve his agility, and he is determined to lose at least 10 pounds. "I want to keep it low," Peralta said. "Feel more lighter. It's good. When I played in Cleveland, that was the weight I was at right now. When I come to Detroit, I never had that (low) weight that I had right now. I was five more pounds. Right now, I'm, like, 218. After the season was over, I was, like, 226." The Tigers have stressed that they want him to improve his range, particularly in the hole.
