MLB: Tigers SS Jhonny Peralta Says He 'Made A Terrible Mistake'

Aug 6 2013, 7:31am CDT | by

Suspended for 50 games by Major League Baseball due to his alleged involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta says he "made a terrible mistake."

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta said he "made a terrible mistake" in light of his 50-game suspension meted out by MLB.

According to the Detroit Free Press' John Lowe,  the 12 suspensions given out by the league due to the Biogenesis scandal on Monday seem to be convincing because none of the disciplined players appealed. It's just unfortunate Peralta was one of the casualties. He said it's a mistake that he regrets.

"In spring of 2012, I made a terrible mistake that I deeply regret.I apologize to everyone that I have hurt as a result of my mistake, including my teammates, the Tigers' organization, the great fans in Detroit, Major League Baseball, and my family. I take full responsibility for my actions, have no excuses for my lapse in judgment, and I accept my suspension. 

"I love the fans, my teammates and this organization, and my greatest punishment is knowing that I have let so many good people down. I promise to do everything possible to try and earn back the respect that I have lost." 

Jose Iglesias will fill in for the more offensive-oriented Peralta at shortstop. With this, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said,"It will change the look of the ballclub a little bit."

Dombrowski also added Peralta was a player who made solid contributions in Detroit. He was also a good person. However, breaking the rules cannot be tolerated, per the Detroit News. 

"Here is someone who has done a lot of good things for our organization, is a really good person, has conducted himself well and has been a key performer for our club.

"But he broke the rules and has to pay a price for it. We support that totally. Our organization will move on from there."

My Fox Detroit quoted starting pitcher Justin Verlander who said "Peralta is my brother." However, another Tigers pitcher, Max Scherzer, wasn't as sympathetic. 

"You know how I feel about cheaters, and as for Jhonny, I'm very disappointed. I'm certainly disappointed."

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez bore the brunt of MLB's ire after he was given a 211-game suspension, but said he will appeal the verdict. Other notable major leaguers who were given 50-game suspensions include Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz and San Diego Padres shortstop Evreth Cabrera.

MLB's official website points out Peralta's suspension will officially end with three games remaining in the 2013 regular season. This will come at a time when the Tigers will square off against the Miami Marlins from September 27-29. If he does return, he may eventually become eligible for the postseason.  

However, the issue of whether Peralta will ultimately suit up in a Tigers uniform ever again is up to the team's front office to decide .

Prior to his suspension, he appeared in 104 games with a .305 average along with 11 home runs and 54 RBIs, per ESPN stats.
