Here are the best Players’ Weekend nicknames from each team

Players’ Weekend is back, which means it is time once again to celebrate the expansive variety of nicknames we have in today’s game—and see them featured on the alternate jerseys worn by the players.

My favorites:

D-backs: Brad Boxberger—BOX HAMBURGER
Marlins: Jarlin Garcia—JARLIN THE MARLIN
Athletics: Sean Manaea—MANAEALATOR
Indians: Shane Bieber—NOT JUSTIN
