Peter Alonso will not be debuting with the Mets this season, because Peter Alonso is no longer his name.
The man formerly known as Peter will now go by Pete, as the Mets prospect joins a long list of baseball players who have decided to change their name.
Earlier this offseason, Yankees reliever Zach Britton changed his name to Zack, and Melvin Upton changed his name back to B.J.
A few years ago, Mike Stanton got tired of being called Mike, and changed his name to Giancarlo.
Now, Alonso joins the ranks of MLB players who have changed their names.
