Peralta says he mistook clam chowder for potato soup

If you’ve ever gone to a soup and salad bar and had to look for a label to figure out what kind of chowder you were staring it, then you can probably relate to Jhonny Peralta’s downfall Monday. If not, well, maybe you’ll sympathize anyway.

Yes, Peralta said Tuesday, he ate clam chowder before Monday’s game knowing he was allergic to it. However, he said, he did not know it was clam chowder, and it wasn’t labeled.

“They had potato soup before, too,” Peralta said. “It didn’t smell [like chowder].”

Not until Peralta had consumed a half-bowl’s worth, he said, did he realize his mistake. Thankfully for his sake, his allergic reaction consisted of stomach problems and not swelling.

Peralta was back in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, going 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored.

The Tigers are back home Wednesday to face Florida Southern, and Peralta is sure to double-check exactly what the soup of the day is from here on out. It almost sounds like a script out of Seinfeld, but Peralta says it was an honest mistake.

“It’s good to know now,” Peralta said.

in regards to the closer and pen:
if you go by committee – then you’ll need another lefty in the pen besides coke. IMO.
.
if you go rondon – coke can be your pen lefty.

Honest mistake by Jhonny, have done the same myself. Though if I had a dangerous allergy, I would be a heck of a lot more careful.

Enjoyed watching the Philly/Tig game on MLB.com today, Smyly while not perfect battled, thought Putkonen acquitted himself pretty well and Santi’s Grand Slam just made me smile.

That just hit the spot. Still brings tears to my eyes out of sheer joy. My son and I were there.
