Report: Cardinals, Peralta close to deal

The Cardinals and free agent Jhonny Peralta are “closing in on a deal,” according to a tweet from ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.

St. Louis has been seeking an upgrade at shortstop, and Peralta presumably would fill that role, Crasnick writes. The 11-year-veteran, who turns 32 in May, hit .303/.358/.457 with 11 home runs and 55 RBIs for the Tigers this year but also served a 50-game suspension for his ties to the Biogenesis case.
