The Tigers acquired Jhonny Peralta and cash from the Indians for minor league pitcher Giovanni Soto, according to the team. MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince reports on Twitter that the Tigers are getting cash, and ESPN.com's Buster Olney says the Tribe will pay most of Peralta's salary (Twitter link). To make room on their 40-man roster, the Tigers designated Wilkin Ramirez for assignment (Twitter link).

A lot of us have had interest in him over the years, so I figured I'd post this. More on the trade is at the link above. It looks like it could be a pretty good deal for both sides.

One can only hope Giovanni Soto gets traded at some point in his career to the Cubs to pitch to Geovany Soto.

Has Ryan Braun ever pitched to Ryan Braun?

The Red Sox once had catcher Javy Lopez and pitcher Javier Lopez at the same time, but, somehow, they were never in a game together. It was very disappointing. :(

Nope, not in the majors. It might've happened in May of 2007 when they were both in AAA, though.

Baseballreference lists this Soto kid as 6'3" and 155 lbs. He must be a sight like Jim Carvell in a baseball uni.
