Tigers minor leaguers: Jhonny Peralta ‘a natural’ as outfielder
Tigers fans are vastly uneasy about Jhonny Peralta’s ongoing transition to left field. But two outfielders currently playing alongside the former shortstop have a message for you.
“He’s a natural,” said Austin Scotts, a Tigers prospect who played center field while Peralta played left in an instructional league game Monday.
“Can’t really tell he’s new to the position.”
Said Connor Harrell, another outfield prospect also working out in Lakeland, Fla.: “I think he looks really good out there — pretty natural, honestly.”
Peralta, 31, has been in Lakeland since the middle of the month, shagging countless flyballs and getting his bat back into shape.
