Jhonny Peralta named to All-Star Game

When Derek Jeter pulled out of the game, you had to figure Jhonny Peralta's chances went up dramatically. He was named to the game tonight, making him the fifth Tiger. He joins Alex Avila, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and Jose Valverde. Verlander, of course, will be ineligible to play after he starts for Detroit Sunday.
