MLB Players Weekend is back!

We’ve got the full list of Halo nicknames

Last year, pretty much all the nicknames seemed rather, err, uninspired.

This year? Pretty much more of the same.

You can see you favorite (and not so favorite) players donning these jerseys Friday, Aug. 24, through Sunday, Aug. 26.

Jose Alvarez: “KÍKE”

Justin Anderson: “ANDO”

Francisco Arcia: “FRANKIE”

Jaime Barria: “EL PANA”

Cam Bedrosian: “BEDROCK”

Jose Briceno: “ORE”

Kole Calhoun: “KOLEMAN”

Kaleb Cowart: “PAL”

Zack Cozart: “L.A. COZ”

Jose Fernandez: “JOTAVE”

David Fletcher: “FLETCH”

Andrew Heaney: “HEANDOG”

Jake Jewell: “BOB”

Jim Johnson: “J.J.”

Jefry Marte: “EL BLEY”

Alex Meyer: “BUBBA”

Keynan Middleton: “MAJOR KEY”

Shohei Ohtani: “SHOWTIME”

Blake Parker: “B-EASY”

Felix Pena: “LA BEFLA”

Albert Pujols: “THE MACHINE”

JC Ramirez: “J.C. TIME”

Noe Ramirez: “OTTO”

Garrett Richards: “G-RICH”

Rene Rivera: “MONCHO”

Hansel Robles: “EL PEÑACO”

Matt Shoemaker: “SHOE”

Andrelton Simmons: “SIMÓN”

Tyler Skaggs: “SWAGGY”

Nick Tropeano: “NITRO”

Mike Trout: “KIIIIID”

Justin Upton: “J - UP”

Blake Wood: “BLOCK-A”

Chris Young: “C Y”

Eric Young Jr.: “EYJ”

We have some pretty predictable stuff and repeats from last year like “Machine”, “Nitro”, “KIIIID”, etc. And of course there is “Show Time”. As uncreative as that one is - it’d be pretty cool to walk around sporting Show Time on your back.

Newcomer Robles went with “El Penaco” which means “The Rock”. Not to be confused with Bedrock who mispelled his nickname - Subsoil.

Other “interesting” names include “Bob” and “Pal”.

That’s all you got Angels? Nothing cool like “Stringbean slinger” or “Chill Sergeant” or “Underpants”?
