Peralta made three starts in the final regular-season series against the Marlins, going 3-for-12 with a double and an RBI. Those three games are also the shortstop-turned-left fielder's only defensive game experience in the outfield. "You're still taking a little bit of a chance, because, defensively, you don't know what's going to happen," Leyland said. "But there comes a point where you might have to give up something to get something. So I'm just hoping that maybe he can knock in a couple of runs and we can get a lead and maybe get him out of there later in the game." Peralta is 1-for-9 against A's starter Jarrod Parker in his career with two walks and two strikeouts.

"They keep it very secretive. There's a lot of hush-hush over Amar'e."
