    I really wish they had put Jackson (and Valverde) on the DL sooner. Saving a few days wasn't worth playing so long with zero bench.

    The Jackson trip to the DL is retroactive to 5/17. BTW, Valverde's date is retro too.

    Ah yes I worded that quite poorly, I meant say Jackson is healthy 12 days after the injury, you'd save 3 days without him by not putting him on the DL. I don't think that would have been worth it.

    So that means that we still have Worth up since AJax went on the DL, correct?

    It was a poor question. What I really meant was, has Worth had any recent reps at SS? If Peralta isn't going to hit, do the Tigers shift and at least try to get someone with a glove there? At one point, Worth was a pretty slick fielder there.

    EDIT: One of the reasons that this occurred to me is that having a good defensive SS would make Miguel look a lot better at 3B.

    Peralta is pretty much doing what could reasonably be expected. His obp is 340ish. His defense is adequate. He on pace to put up a 1.5-2 war year.

    Peralta is not the problem.

    I agree he's far from the biggest problem, but a 92 OPS+ with very poor defense is still disappointing after last year

    he's not too from his career norms, but his power is a little off.

    Of course it is. But it's hard to get a really good shortstop that plays every day.

    By what measure is Peralta "very poor?" At worst, I'd buy very slightly below average.
