10 Sexy Baseball Stars to Check Out this MLB Season

Major League Baseball is here once again. After a winter of rest and a spring training period to prepare for the new season, the best players in the world are ready to hit the diamond once again for another 162 games throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Baseball is sometimes bemoaned as a boring sport, but there are several sexy players that make looking at the nine-inning game an absolute pleasure.

Some of these thirst-worthy hunks have been in baseball for years; others still have a novelty that is sure to surprise more than a few fans. We've compiled a list of 10 men who not only know how to show off their skills on the baseball field, but display their attractiveness off the field as well.

Julio Rodriguez, Seattle Mariners

There aren't many brighter young stars in MLB than the Seattle Mariners' outfielder Julio Rodriguez. J-Rod's first season in 2022 was decorated with AL Rookie of the Year and an All-Star appearance. He was able to lead the Ms to the playoffs for the first time since 2001, creating a fervor that is carrying on into the new season in the Pacific Northwest. Rodriguez is incredibly attractive, flashing his beautiful eyes and in-shape body on his Instagram account.

Jeremy Peña, Houston Astros

Jeremy Peña became the breakout star of the Houston Astros' run to the World Series and their ensuing victory in 2022. He became the first player ever to win the American League Championship Series MVP Award and the World Series MVP in the same season. He often shows his muscular body and boyish smile on social media for fans of the Astros and other teams all around baseball.

Max Kepler, Minnesota Twins

Max Kepler has been a steady presence in the outfield for the Minnesota Twins since 2015. Even though his production has slipped in the last couple of seasons, his good looks on the diamond have only gotten more noticeable. Kepler grew up in Germany, making him one of the only current MLB players from Europe.

Kiki Hernández, Boston Red Sox

Kiki Hernández has played for various teams such as the Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, and Los Angeles Dodgers before his current stop in Boston. He has captivated fans with his handsome smile and vibrant ability to play many positions on the field, a term that is usually referred to as being a utility player in MLB. His best statistical season was for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015, when he had a batting average of .307.

Kris Bryant, Colorado Rockies

The only thing more attractive than Kris Bryant's blue eyes is his pretty swing in the batter's box. Bryant has movie-star looks to accompany his four All-Star appearances, a National League MVP Award, and a World Series Championship. Bryant was one of the most hotly anticipated prospects in baseball during the mid-2010s before being drafted by the Chicago Cubs. He helped the franchise overcome their century-plus long title drought during the 2016 postseason. Bryant is currently playing for the Colorado Rockies franchise in Denver.

Fernando Tatis Jr., San Diego Padres

Fernando Tatis Jr. has been one of the most spectacular young players in the history of the San Diego Padres franchise for the past several years. His blockbuster charisma and passion for the game makes him one of baseball's biggest heartthrobs. Unfortunately, Tatis Jr. hasn't been in the limelight for positive reasons recently after he was suspended for taking performance enhancing drugs during the 2022 season. He will remain out due to suspension at the beginning of this upcoming season.

Javier Báez, Detroit Tigers

Javier Báez started his career on the same Chicago Cubs team that won the World Series with Kris Bryant, another hunk at the top of our list. With sexy tattoos and a magical game on the field to boot, Báez helped make the Cubs blessed with some incredibly attractive players in the mid-2010s! Báez has been playing for the Detroit Tigers since the beginning of the 2022 season.

Corey Seager, Texas Rangers

Corey Seager is one-half of one of baseball's best families, as his older brother Kyle recently retired after playing for the Seattle Mariners for many years. Seager is now playing for the Texas Rangers after leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to the World Series and a victory in the final round in 2020.

Eric Hosmer, San Diego Padres

Eric Hosmer has that gruff, masculine vibe about him that makes us enjoy tuning in every summer to watch baseball. After playing for the Kansas City Royals at the beginning of his career and leading them to a World Series Championship, he has appeared for the San Diego Padres, the Boston Red Sox, and the Chicago Cubs.

Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies

Even casual baseball fans have most likely heard of the superstar exploits of this hunky five-tool player for the Phillies. Bryce Harper has been a constant presence for every team he's appeared on, currently helping to make Philadelphia a contender in the National League. Above you can enjoy seeing when Harper graced ESPN's Body Issue in 2015.
