Jhonny Peralta vs. The Layoff

Peralta could be the player most affected by the layoff, because he showed such energy through the first two rounds after an indifferent regular season. It barely registered amid the Alex Rodriguez frenzy, but Peralta’s deft denial of a possible run-scoring single for A-Rod in the first inning could have been the turning point of the entire series. Peralta’s defensive play improved almost overnight, and he batted .375 over his last eight postseason games — including two home runs in the ALCS clincher. Now the Tigers hope the streaky hitter finds a way to stay hot. - Jon Paul Morosi (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
