Johnny Cueto’s brother interviewed by confused reporter

Johnny Cueto brothers

Johnny Cueto is good at two things: pitching well and confusing reporters.

The Kansas City Royals starter threw a complete game to lift his team to a 7-1 victory in Game 2 of the World Series Wednesday against the Mets, putting KC up 2-0 in the series. Naturally reporters sought to interview him after the game. One thought he was getting a nice exclusive with the pitcher, but it turns out the reporter was actually interviewing one of Cueto’s brothers.

MLB.com writer Anthony Castrovince spoke with Cueto’s brother, Danillo, who said they get mistaken for one another all the time.

After seeing how similar they look, it’s no surprise. The only question is can Danillo throw 90 mph with a great cutter and changeup like his bro? Probably not. But if Johnny ever needs a body double, we all know whom to call.
