GQ recently did an MLB player photoshoot and Barry Zito won

Slim is in for 2013 and several new lines of skinny, street-styled baseball jackets will soon be available in stores. Naturally, GQ celebrated with a photoshoot that included Barry Zito, Brandon Phillips, Buster Posey, Chase Headley, Andre Ethier and Jake Peavy.
