31 Major League Baseball Players We Want On Our Roster

Maybe it's their athleticism or their philanthropic efforts (or those snug baseball pants TBH), but we suddenly have the urge to watch more baseball.

The most wonderful time of the year is finally upon us, as Opening Day for the MLB is set for April 3. We've been waiting all year for the return of those sexy baseball jerseys, and the men wearing them who have stolen our hearts. From All-Stars to philanthropists to straight-up models, here are 31 baseball boys we'd love to spend time with.

Mike Trout: Los Angeles Angels

This five-time All-Star, two-time All-Star Game MVP has been regarded as one of the best players in all of MLB currently, as well as one of the most outstanding players in the history of baseball. And come on, he's also pretty easy on the eyes.

Jacoby Ellsbury: New York Yankees

Ellsbury is the first Native American of Navajo descent (thanks to his full-blooded Navajo mother, Margie) to reach the MLB.

José Bautista: Toronto Blue Jays

Joey Bats, who happens to be a member of the 50 homerun club, set up a program in 2011 that helps athletes from the Dominican Republic and Canada attend schools in the United States and pursue their dreams.

Eric Hosmer: Kansas City Royals

The K.C. cutie has made a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City, where he's given thousands of dollars in donations and hundreds of hours.

Kris Bryant: Chicago Cubs

We can't get enough of the 2016 National League Most Valuable Player—and it's not hard to see why.

Cole Hamels: Texas Rangers

Hamels covers all the expenses of The Hamels Foundation, which funds education programs for children in Africa and Philadelphia. 100 percent of every dollar goes to the children.

Brett Lawrie: Chicago White Sox

We have the land of maple syrup to thank for this Canadian third baseman. O, Canada! He was recently released by his team, but here's hoping this cutie gets picked up elsewhere.

Ervin Santana: Minnesota Twins

Minnesota Twins pitcher Ervin Santana will be a starter on Opening Day (*heart eyes emoji*)—just another reason to tune in on April 3rd.

Paul Goldschmidt: Arizona Diamondbacks

This gorgeous first baseman goes by the nickname "Goldy."

Corey Seager: Los Angeles Dodgers

Lucky for us, Corey's got three brothers, two of whom are also involved with the MLB.

Marcus Emien: Oakland A's

Semien was drafted as a high schooler by the Chicago White Sox in the 34th round of the 2008 MLB Draft. He chose not to sign and to study at U.C. Berkeley instead before entering into the MLB. Good looks and brains!

Noah Syndergaard: NY Mets

Syndergaard acquired the nickname Thor, and it isn't difficult to see why. With that sculpted body and glorious locks of hair, he's a real-life superhero.

Christian Bethancourt: San Diego Padres

Bethancourt began playing baseball at age 5 in Panama City, Panama, where he was born and raised.

Kevin Kiermaier: Tampa Bay Rays

Kiermaier has gotten attention for his strong arm, outfield defense, and frequently stealing home base.

Leonys Martín: Seattle Mariners

Leonys was named after Lionel Richie, his mom's favorite music artist.

Anthony Rizzo: Chicago Cubs

This three-time All-Star began a non-profit organization with his family called the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation, benefiting cancer research.

C.J. Wilson: Los Angeles Angels

That smile has us believing that angels really do exist.

Xander Bogaerts: Boston Red Sox

Xander, nicknamed the X-Man, has a twin brother named Jair who is an international free agent, lucky for us.

Anthony Santander: Baltimore Orioles

We're dying for Anthony Santander to take us home and meet the parents—and the fact that he was born on Margarita Island, Venezuela, has nothing to do with it (we swear).

Josh Rutledge: Boston Red Sox

Just looking at this infielder makes us want to switch allegiences to be Boston Red Sox fans.

Jason Kipnis: Cleveland Indians

Kipnis may have lost the World Series, but he stays winning in our hearts.

Javier Báez: Chicago Cubs

This Puerto Rican hottie is good with his hands. No, really—he's left-hand dominant but throws and bats right-handed.

Daniel Norris: Detroit Tigers

Despite his $2 million signing bonus, Norris lives off of just $800 a month, choosing instead to stick to his roots and live a minimalist lifestyle. He can live in our tiny house anytime.

Anthony Rendon: Washington Nationals

According to his parents, Rendon began playing baseball at a very early age. He enjoyed hitting pinecones with sticks as early as 3 years old.

James Hoyt: Houston Astros

At 6-foot-6, Hoyt has a pretty wicked fastball, clocking in anywhere from 94 to 96 mph.

Alexi Amarista: Colorado Rockies

Amarista's height is listed variously as 5'7" or 5'8"—so he was given the nickname "Little Ninja" by Padres catcher John Baker.

Jonathan Villar: Milwaukee Brewers

This Dominican second baseman has a name that sounds as hot as he is: Jonathan Rafael Villar Roque.

Howie Kendrick: Philadelphia Phillies

Howie's warm smile makes us automatic Phillies fans.

Tyler Glasnow: Pittsburgh Pirates

We may not all be Pirates fans, but we sure do like the booty.

Matt Kemp: Atlanta Braves

The long-time Dodger once dated Rihanna, and we couldn't be more jealous (of Rihanna, of course).

Dexter Fowler: St. Louis Cardinals

Fowler became the first player in baseball history to lead off a World Series Game 7 with a home run, contributing to the Cubs' first World Series title in 108 years. Marry us, Dexter?

Sierra Burgos

Sierra is an Editorial Intern and Drake University student who was born and raised in California. When she's not dishing on Hollywood's hottest, she enjoys experimenting with beauty and fashion, watching videos of puppies, spending time outdoors, and basically living at Chipotle.
