Peralta played left field at the end of the season after spending his entire career in the infield.

Soon-to-be free agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta would like to come back to the Tigers and may be willing to play left field to do so reports the Detroit Free Press.

Peralta has spent the previous four seasons with the Tigers but the team no longer has an opening at shortstop. A mid-season trade brought defensive whiz Jose Iglesias in from the Red Sox and he is poised to be the team's starter longterm.

When asked about the possibility of taking a new position to stay in Detroit Peralta told reporters: "There's a chance for sure yeah because I like the organization here. Do I want to be here? Yeah I want to be here."
