Cleveland has the third-worst attendance in baseball, ahead of just Tampa Bay and Miami. The Indians’ three-game series with Kansas City last week drew a total of 34,494 — 11,498 per game.

Jhonny Peralta rejoined the Tigers for workouts Wednesday. The All-Star shortstop is serving a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal that runs out with three games left in the season.
He will not return to short, as the team is pleased with Jose Iglesias. Peralta will work out in the outfield and at third, short and second. “I’m angry with myself,” he said.

At least one thing is going right for the White Sox. They entered Saturday third in the majors with a .258 batting average with two out and runners in scoring position.
Three observations …
• Coco Crisp has 19 home runs? I remember when he used to bunt the entire first round of batting practice. Now he has one bunt hit and 19 home runs. Wow.
• The Braves need to take it down a notch. Jose Fernandez took a little extra time to admire his first major league home run, and Atlanta turns it into a bench-clearing incident. The Braves are crushing the National League East. Lighten up.
• Hopefully Derek Jeter comes back in 2014 and has an injury-free season and goes out on his own terms.
… and two predictions
• Miguel Cabrera will give up his pursuit of the Triple Crown and shut it down the final week of the regular season.
• The Twins will finish 69-93.
