DETROIT (AP) -Detroit Tigers infielder Neifi Perez was suspended 25 games by Major League Baseball on Friday after it says he tested positive for a banned stimulant.
Perez, a seldom-used utility player, is hitting .172 with one home run and six RBIs in 64 at-bats in the team's first 83 games.
``The Tigers fully support Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,'' the team said in a statement.
