10. Jorge Alfaro: El Oso
Alfaro received this nickname, meaning “the bear” when he signed with the Rangers in 2010. He used this nickname last year, and it’s certainly pretty good.

Herrera got the “little bull” moniker when he was a kid in Venezuela from his dad. Herrera’s whole playing style is like a bull in a china shop.
8. Asdrubal Cabrera: Chiquitín
Chiquitín translates to “tiny tot” as a noun in Spanish. This name is definitely ironic with Cabrera standing six feet tall and weighing 205 pounds, but that makes it all the better.
7. Wilson Ramos: Buffalo
This has been Ramos’s nickname for some time now. Ian Desmond gave it to him while he was a National since he was a big guy and always stayed in the game. Ramos used it last year with the Rays for Player’s Weekend.
6. Andrew Knapp: Knapp Time
This was arguably one of the strongest nicknames last year, and I feel a little bad putting it outside of the top five. The others simply appealed to me more, but this is still a strong nickname.
