  • Cal (The Big Dumper) Raleigh

The reason is in parentheses, which is to say it’s the back of his front. He was given the nickname after a home run in the minors in which Mariner phenom Jarred Kelenic said in an interview, “Big hit by the Big Dumper.” Kelenic has since been moved from the heart of Seattle’s future to the nine-hole in Atlanta, which you may decide for yourselves is actually a promotion, but Raleigh remains to embark on a glorious career in which he leads from the back, if you know I mean.

  • Francisco Alvarez

Same general reason, only five inches shorter.

  • Josh Naylor

Go on, take a guess.

  • Triston McKenzie

Six inches taller than Naylor and 100 pounds lighter. Thank the galactic pixies who guide us all that Major League Baseball doesn’t have a combine.

And finally . . .

  • Mookie Betts

Just want to see if he pitches enough innings to qualify for the Cy Young, and if on the final day of the regular season he can replicate this:

  • Triston Casas
  • Corbin Carroll, because he’s speedy and fun
