Tigers pitcher Wily Peralta pitches against the Brewers during the second inning on Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021, at Comerica Park.

Detroit Tigers starter Wily Peralta remembers meeting Freddy Peralta in spring training with the Milwaukee Brewers.

They aren’t related, but the pair of right-handed pitchers formed a friendship because of their last names. The Brewers acquired Freddy Peralta in December 2015 from the Seattle Mariners, but he didn’t make his MLB debut until 2018. Wily Peralta, meanwhile, pitched for Milwaukee from 2012-17. Both players are represented by the same agency: REP1 Baseball.
