News: Perez will continue to see time in the outfield during spring training, and the Tigers intend to have him compete for a super utility role, MLive.com reports.
Impact: Perez offers more offensive upside than Romine, while both players are being tasked with outfield work as the Tigers are seeking a replacement on their bench for Don Kelly. It's expected that Perez and Romine will see significantly reduced opportunities at shortstop with a return to health from Jose Iglesias.

News: Perez has been working out in the outfield and will continue to do so during winter league games, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports.
Impact: Perez offers some speed (21-for-27 in stolen-base attempts last season) and versatility defensively, but the big question for him in Detroit focuses on how he'll actually crack the lineup with Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias expected to handle the overwhelming majority of starts at the middle-infield positions. Perez hit .287/.331/.404 at Triple-A Toledo last season.
