DETROIT (WQLR) -- The Detroit Tigers are having a busy morning.  Tigers President and CEO Dave Dombrowski announced early Tuesday that the Tigers have extended Jim Leyland's contract. To add to it they have picked up the club options for Octavio Dotel and Jhonny Peralta for 2013. Peralta played an integral role in the Tigers run to the 2012 World Series.

Dotel appeared in 57 games for the Tigers during the 2012 season, posting a 5-3 record, 3.57 ERA (58.0IP/23ER) and 62 strikeouts. He limited opponents to a .230 batting average (50x217) during the season. Dotel did not allow a run in five innings of work during his six outings for Detroit during the playoffs. Peralta batted .239 (127x531) with 32 doubles, three triples, 13 home runs and 63 RBI in 150 games for the Tigers during the 2012 season. He finished second among all American League shortstops with a .988 fielding percentage during the season.
