Six MLB players who are actually among the world's most fashionable athletes

It's the time of the year to get mad about All-Star snubs, and we encourage you to do that. In fact, here's a list to get you started. But there's another, far more urgent situation at hand -- the baseball players left off Sports Illustrated's "Fashionable 50" list.
Only Bryce Harper made the cut, and while we agree with that, we'd like to remind everyone that MLB is full of fashionable athletes. Here are six to start the conversation. You are, as always, welcome to tweet your own suggestions @Cut4, but please provide photographic proof.

The Cleveland shortstop is not afraid to experiment with bold prints, and he seems to carry a fashion backpack wherever he goes. What's in there? Snacks? Extra sunglasses? His ineffable sense of cool?

Marcus Stroman

It's no surprise that Stroman is on this list -- he has his own fashion label, after all. No matter where he is, his look is perfectly composed.

Mookie is not here trying to blend in. Just try to tell him to wear a basic black or grey suit, see what happens.

Kemp can wear a suit as well as the next guy (OK, let's be honest -- better than), but if you're looking for someone to sport a hoodie with Frank Lloyd Wright on it, only Kemp can do it. Have you ever seen anyone else pull this off?

Sometimes fashion is all about accessorizing. D-backs reliever Bradley can choose a striking tie and work a watch, and he's not afraid of floral prints, either.

Every list of fashionable players needs someone who's willing to go avant-garde. As you can see above, Correa is willing to play with silhouette and shape. And he's wearing sunglasses inside! Put that man on the cover of "Vanity Fair" right now.
