Houston Astros release nicknames for 2019 MLB Players' Weekend

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- While the uniforms are going to be simple, the names on the back of them won't be.

The MLB will once again have Players' Weekend, which gives players the chance to have a little fun with what goes on their jersey.

Players' Weekend will take place from August 23-25, and you know the Astros are going all out for the jerseys.

Here are the nicknames for the AL West leaders:

Jose Altuve: "Tuve"
Yordan Alvarez: "Yordan"
Joe Biagini: "Jeffrey"
Michael Brantley: "Champ"
Alex Bregman: "A-Breg"
Robinson Chirinos: "Pelo Buche"
Gerrit Cole: "Chef G"
Chris Devenski: "Devo"

Aledmys Diaz: "Papito"
Zack Greinke: "Greinke"
Yuli Gurriel: "La Pina"
Will Harris: "Clutch Cam"
Martin Maldonado: "Martincito"
Jake Marisnick: "Big Fudge"
Lance McCullers Jr.: "Perdomo"
Collin McHugh: "12-6"
Wade Miley: "Miles"
Roberto Osuna: "Osuna"

Brad Peacock: "P"
Ryan Pressly: "Press"
Josh Reddick: "Mr. Irrelevant"
Hector Rondon: "Rondy"
Aaron Sanchez: "Sanchize"
Joe Smith: "Smitty"
George Springer: "Horhay"
Garrett Stubbs: "Stubbs"
Justin Verlander: "J V"

We haven't heard yet what Carlos Correa's nickname will be. In 2017, he used the name "Showrrea," and in 2018, he went with "I Am Groot," which also happens to be the name of one of his dogs (and a character in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy.")

The MLB website has the full list of the nicknames for every team's players. Although Correa is not there now, the website notes that not all names are finalized and some may be added.

So we could find out soon if "Showrrea" or any other name will make a comeback, or if Correa is going with something new.
