• When asked about Quintin Berry's role, manager Jim Leyland said, "I consider Berry an extra player right now. And a good one. He brings us some speed, a little different dimension for us."

• Jhonny Peralta indicated he thought Paul Konerko's single ahead of Alex Rios' three-run homer on Monday would've been a routine grounder for him if he hadn't been playing for the double play, which he had to after an Omar Infante error had put Dewayne Wise on first base.

"I know he pulls everything," Peralta said, "but no matter what, I don't want to be too far from the base."
