Tigers | Not looking for insurance for Jhonny Peralta

The Detroit Tigers haven't been scrambling to trade for a backup to SS Jhonny Peralta in case he gets suspended in the Biogenesis investigation. "They've shown no urgency (to find a replacement for Peralta) whatsoever," said one executive. "It's almost like they know something, or maybe they've talked to Peralta and they know he's going to appeal it."

Fantasy Tip: If you own Peralta, this is good news, but it doesn't mean there is zero chance he won't be suspended. Make backup plans and build depth at shortstop just in case.
