DETROIT (AP) - Jhonny Peralta is staying with the Detroit Tigers.

The shortstop has agreed to an $11.25 million, two-year contract, a person familiar with the contract said Sunday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn’t been announced.

Detroit declined Peralta’s $7.25 million option Tuesday, opting to pay a $250,000 buyout, but Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said then that the team was optimistic about reaching a new agreement. Dombrowski did not immediately respond to an e-mail Sunday night seeking comment on the new deal.

Acquired from Cleveland in July, Peralta was shifted from third base to shortstop by Detroit and hit .253 with eight home runs in 57 games with the Tigers.
