Hot Rides of MLB Stars

The minimum salary for a Major League Baseball player in 2019 was 555k. Of course, this is what a minor leaguer who is going to the bigs for the first time might expect to get paid. For the guys who have established themselves as the best in the world, the rules are different. There are salary caps, but stacked compensation and guaranteed endorsement contracts make them a bit of a joke. With all that money floating around, you would expect these guys to have some very sweet rides. And you’d be right. Some MLB stars really know their cars and some that just like flashy rides but either way most of them have the cash to spend.

15Aroldis Chapman – Custom Rhino GX

Aroldis Chapman – Custom Rhino GX

Yankee’s pitcher and four-time MLB All-Star Aroldis Chapman, “The Cuban Missile,” is a former Cuban National Team member who came to the U.S. in 2009 and has since become a citizen. He has a wide variety of cars in his stable including Lambos, Rolls, and Porches, but his personal favorite is a fully customized Rhino GX. He reportedly paid over $300 thousand for the 6.8L V10 powered luxury 4X4 and had it sent directly to a custom shop to be gutted and redressed with a Latin flair.

14Brock Holt - Customized Jeep Wrangler

Brock Holt - Customized Jeep Wrangler

Brock Holt is a baseball renaissance man, in his time playing for the Boston Red Sox he has filled in at every position except for catcher and pitcher. It seems that he likes his vehicles as versatile as he is since he just bought a new Jeep Wrangler and had it delivered to Miami’s infamous customizers at the Auto Store where it received a total makeover. He describes their creation as a “lady in the sheets, but a freak in the streets.”

13David Price - BMW i8

David Price - BMW i8

Cy Young Award winner, multi-time All-Star MVP recipient David Price was once the highest-paid pitcher in baseball earning a whopping $31 million per year in base salary. While he is definitely a man who has learned to enjoy his wealth, he is also a family man with an eye toward protecting the environment for his kid’s future. His ride of choice is an electric, two-tone, 369 bhp BMW i8 capable of going from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.

12Felix Hernandez - Ferrari 458

Felix Hernandez - Ferrari 458

Felix Hernandez or King Felix as the press likes to call him is a starting pitcher for Seattle Mariners who currently earns a base salary of $26.9 million as part of a multi-year $175 million contract. To say that he loves his cars is an extreme understatement as he owns a Rolls-Royce Wraith, a Range Rover, a Porsche Cayenne, and a Toyota Tundra. His current favorite is a Ferrari 458 capable of 0-60 times around 3.2 seconds and a top-end speed of just over 200 mph.

11Carlos Gonzalez - Lamborghini Aventador

Carlos Gonzalez - Lamborghini Aventador

A Venezuelan right fielder for Colorado Rockies Carlos Gonzalez aka CarGo is a three-time National League All-Star, but he is mostly known as a man that hasn’t let success go to his head, is always friendly and is devoted to his twin girls, wife and family in is home country. He hasn’t spent a fortune on buying multiple rides but has splurged for a single tricked out sling for himself. A flat black Mayday Motors customized Lamborghini Aventador.

10Hanley Ramirez - Lamborghini Aventador

Hanley Ramirez - Lamborghini Aventador

There must be some kinship between Latin blood and Lambos because the next car on our list is another Aventador, but this one belonging to Boston Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez. With a salary of $22 million a year, he could fill a stable with noble steads but believes one V12 powered cart that goes from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph is enough for any man. He prefers to put his money away so he can build a better future for his family in the Dominican Republic.

9Jake Arrieta - VelociRaptor Ford F-150

Jake Arrieta - VelociRaptor Ford F-150

Not all professional athletes are into life in the fast lane, Jacob Joseph Arrieta a 32-year-old pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies lives a life that borders on the mundane; when not playing ball and cashing $25 million checks he enjoys woodworking. This might explain why he prefers a VelociRaptor Ford F-150 to some high-speed demon that can’t even haul your golf clubs much less a load of lumber. This special edition truck features a 750 hp twin-turbo power plant, so overloading is never a problem.

8Joey Votto - Ferrari 458 Italia

Joey Votto - Ferrari 458 Italia

Canadian born Joey Votto, first baseman for the Cincinnati Reds, earns an annual salary of $22.5 million and no one even dares to think he is overpaid. He has been an MLB All-Star five times, won seven Tip O’Neill Awards, plus was named Canadian Athlete of the Year after winning the Lou Marsh Trophy twice. His car, the Vottomatica as he likes to call it, is a 562 hp, 202 mph Ferrari 458 Italia that can come off the line and rocket to 100 mph in under 6 seconds.

7Jon Lester - Ford F-250 HD

Jon Lester - Ford F-250 HD

If you haven’t noticed by now, it seems that baseball stars are a different breed from most professional athletes you hear about and Jon Lester is unique even among this cerebral crowd. Twice, once for the Boston Red Sox and then again for his current club, the Chicago Cubs, he has won the final game of the World Series giving them a championship. In his spare time, he is a winemaker and avid hunter which may explain why his daily driver is a Ford F-250 HD 4X4 equipped with brush guards, wench and 9-inch lift kit.

6Robinson Cano - Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

Robinson Cano - Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

Robinson Cano is a second-generation MLB player whose accolades include being the 2017 All-Star Game MVP, Gold Glove Awards and American League Player of the month more than once and his $24 million salary means he can drive what he likes. Most often his choice is his Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport even though he owns a McLaren 12C, a Mercedes-Benz S550, a custom Jeep Wrangler, a custom Porsche Panamera 4S, a Range Rover Sport and a Ferrari.

5Justin Verlander - Special Edition Ford GT

Justin Verlander - Special Edition Ford GT

When you make $28 million a year you have plenty of cash, and when you are married to supermodel Kate Upton you really don’t have to support the family so what do you do with all that extra money? Buy cars, of course. The 6 foot 5-inch-tall Houston Astros pitcher owns a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a Mercedes-Benz SLS Black Series, two Ferraris a 458 and an F12 Berlinetta, a Mercedes-Benz SL55, a Maserati Gran Turismo but his personal favorite is a special edition Ford GT Supercar given to him by his wife.

4Victor Martinez - Chevrolet Camaro SS

Victor Martinez - Chevrolet Camaro SS

You may be asking yourself why a man banking the kind of money that V-Mart is making would be driving a banal as a Chevrolet Camaro. Well, part of the answer is that Victor is a car guy’s car guy and knows what he wants. His SS has been reworked by MC Customs and has such features as custom 8 spoke wheels design, chrome exhaust, a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that develops 455 horsepower paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and jumps from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds flat.

3Miguel Cabrera - Cadillac Escalade ESV

Miguel Cabrera - Cadillac Escalade ESV

Is it a Cadillac Escalade or is it a Chevy Silverado; the answer to that question is a resounding yes. Miguel, call me Miggy, Cabrera, first baseman for the Detroit Tigers, has won more awards than you can count, but one of his favorite trophies is his custom CadiMax truck with modified body panel lines, 40-inch tires, 24-inch wheels, 14-inch bulletproof lift, plus Miggy’s triple crown logo, and pearl black paint body with crushed glass.

2Yoan Moncada - Lamborghini Huracan

Yoan Moncada - Lamborghini Huracan

The Chicago White Sox’s Yoan Moncada became the highest-paid baseball prospect in the history of the league at the tender age of just 19. It is rumored that upon hearing the news, he contacted auto agent Alex Vega and immediately ordered ten custom cars even though he didn’t have driver’s license at the time. While no one is quite sure how many of the rides were actually delivered but the car he is most often seen driving is a white Lamborghini Huracan stamped with his initials.

1Yoenis Cespedes - Take Your Pick

Yoenis Cespedes - Take Your Pick

Some people have a set of shoes or a watch to go with every outfit but Yoenis Cespedes, outfielder for the New York Mets, apparently has a car to match every shirt in his considerable closet. He has been seen driving an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione, a Ford F-150, a Lamborghini Aventador with $80,000 worth of mods and two separate Polaris slingshot 3-wheel motorcycles all within a week of each other. Supposedly he once told Alex Vega of Auto Firm to deliver a week load of fancy cars to him at the New York Met’s summer training camp.
