One most important and beautiful parts of the body are the eyes; people say, “eyes hold the most beauty.” But in the case of Scherzer, eyes made him one of the creepiest MLB players of all time. His right eye is blue, and the other one is brown. Scherzer could make anyone feel uncomfortable just by looking at them.

Whatsoever, Scherzer is one of the best pitchers of all time. He was the world champion in 2019, won All-Star awards 8 times, and was the MLB Strikeout player of 2018.

Well, you may disagree with me for putting Jeff Samardzija’s name in the ugliest MLB players list but it is what it is. Here is why he is named by many to be put on the ugliest list.

First of all, the tall giant looked freaking horrible and could scare anyone with his long rough and tumble hairstyle. And secondly, because of his weird beard. Beard must be found very manly and sexy by so many men and women. But a few beards just on the chin could make you look a lot more similar to a goat.

Here, the goat doesn’t represent the greatest of all time. Samardzija literally looks like a dumb goat with his beard.

There is been a very popular saying about Samardzija, you probably know about it that Samardzija should have purchased his career in NFL. First, cause he is amazing at catching touchdowns then he is at getting hitters out. Second, that’s how Samardzija could hide his face behind the mask, and we wouldn’t have to see them.

Samardzija used to play football at the University of Notre Dame before he was selected by Chicago Cubs in 2006 for the MLB draft. Samardzija is two times All-American Wide Receiver, and he became the All-Star player in 2014.

Fun Fact and Controversy

Julio Urias is the star of the Los Angeles Dodgers, born to make history. He is the first-ever Mexican-born pitcher to win an ERA title, winning the 2020 world cup series championship.

Though with all these trophies and stardom, you just can’t hide your ugliness. Urias is 26 now but if you look at his round shape fat face, you will surely assume that the man hasn’t touched puberty yet. Moreover, there is no hope that in time Urias will look different, we are observing him since he was 19, and not much of a change has been noticed so far.

Here is the funny thing, if you look at Urias’s face he will remind you of lizards cause of His half-closed eye. Man, Urias still had to listen and take so much bullying and harsh talk for his eye, imagine how horrible his school days were!

Even though people considered Urias one of the ugliest baseball players cause of his eye but once you learn the truth behind it you will feel pity for him. Urias had more than 10 surgeries when he was a kid. As a result, his left eye is like this, half open and half closed. Well, no problem with his eye now, can see perfectly, he just looks like a donkey trying hard not to fall asleep.

Fun facts and Controversy

Do you know what I’m thinking? Brett Wallace started his MLB career so that he could be named in our selection, should have put them at the top, then he would surely put his achievements on his CV. Sometimes you just feel sorry for him, Wallace started his career with heavy potential, but he just lost it.

There are so many reasons for saying Wallace is ugly. Every time that man smile, it looks like he got no teeth in his mouth. His facial skin looks like it’s falling from the bones, and it’s burnt off. And let’s not start on his tree trunk’s leg.

How many of you remember the name Ezequiel Astacio? If there are any bosses of ugliness, then nobody could take away the crown from Astacio.

If Darwin’s theory said that people come from gorillas, not from monkeys, then Astacio alone would be enough to prove the theory. Astacio truly looks like a living gorilla with his black face and lips.

Astacio’s face is fully covered with pimples and looks like someone tried to put a fired iron stick on his face. If you suddenly see him, an unwanted unexpected shout will surely come out of your mouth. To be honest, Astacio is scarier looking than ugly.

Remember the characters from Star Wars, Jabba the Hutt? Well, to describe Bartolo Colon, the ideal option is to tell you that Colon is actually a human version of Jabba the Hutt. We get a squeamish feeling just looking at the Hutt, right? You will feel exactly the same just by looking at the gross face of the Colon.

The man’s head is probably the most disgusting figure in the whole body. It reminds me of a melted Dominican candle with hair sprinkled on it. Seeing the shape of the Colon, it feels like man hasn’t put any green vegetables in his food habit since 1987. His turkey neck and mouth are full of such active salivary glands the man won’t need any extra makeup to portray the underworld Batman villain.

Anyway, no matter how ugly the man is he is loved by millions of fans, people absolutely love him for his outstanding performance and funny mood. Colon is undoubtedly one of the great pitchers of his time. He won the All-Star award four times; in 2005, he won the AL Cy Young Award and AL wins leader.

John Lackey just can’t be ignored from our ugliest MLB players list. His wild, greasy hair made him a perfect costume for the caveman. What really makes the man look unattractive and dumb is his too much face chin. There is a popular saying in MLB that Lackey has more chin in his face than his appearance for all-star.

In the case of ugliness, Lackey’s mouth is to blame a lot. Compared to his face, his mouth is truly small. Whenever Lackey talks or shouts or opens his mouth, it feels like the word is not getting enough space to come out of his mouth, and it makes an annoying sound.

Putting beside all this ugliness, Lackey is truly a great player. He has won the World Series Championship three times. In 2007, Lackey won the All-Star player award. He has a win-loss record of 188–147.

Fun Facts and Controversy

• Lackey’s one of the most significant controversies is getting involved with chicken and beers. In 2011 Red Sox gave a very bad performance. Since then, they got the name of the chicken and beer team. The story begins with Lackey, Josh Beckett, and Jon Lester; they used to eat beers, chickens, and biscuits from a clubhouse near Popeye’s.

At first glimpse of Pence, what comes first to our mind seeing is this man surely living in the basement of his mom’s boyfriend’s house, watching adults’ videos, and thinking of the weirdest business plans ever. Well, this is exactly what his impression looks like.

Pence had disgusting facial hair and a curly afro-like hairdo; with all these, this man looks like barbaric, got a time machine, and dressed like a civilized person. You know what’s wrong with this man most, besides his hideous looks, is just by seeing the person, you feel like he can’t be trustable; he must be a fraud.

But you know, you know the wise saying- don’t judge a book by its cover; Pence is a four-time All-Star Award winner player. Pence won the World Series Championship game two times. He got his written in the San Francisco Giants Wall of Fame.

Fun facts and Controversy

You, remember the time when princes kissed a frog, and the frog turned into a man? Have you ever wondered what the man would look like in real life? Vicente Padilla is the giant frog man. If marvel ever made a movie on a frog power, who can pee any time they want, then Padilla would be an unbeatable casting.

To be honest, if you asked me, can I criticize him while he is in front of me, my answer would be, “no way, I love my family and my life.” With his deadly-looking eye and weirdly shaped body, he truly looks like a Russian drug leader.

Padilla has the most deadly look ever. There is a popular saying about the man that he doesn’t deliver a breaking ball. He delivers the death blow. They say such an ugliness combined with seriousness should not be allowed in the mound.
