Erie SeaWolves star infielder Hernan Perez has been promoted to the Detroit Tigers. Detroit 2B Omar Infante went down with an injury last week and the extent of the injury was unknown. He was finally placed on the disabled list this afternoon and Perez was added to the 25-man roster.
Perez will start tonight’s game against the Chicago White Sox. He will bat eighth and play second base.
Perez, 22, is hitting .300 with an Eastern League-leading 108 hits and 28 doubles. He has 35 RBIs and is second in the league with 24 stolen bases.
