ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have made room on the roster for newly acquired third baseman Jhonny Peralta by optioning infielder Scott Sizemore to Triple-A Toledo.

The moves were announced before Detroit's game against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

The Tigers obtained Peralta and cash considerations from Cleveland for minor league left-hander Giovanni Soto on Wednesday.

Peralta will fill in for injured third baseman Brandon Inge (broken left hand).
