Former Cubs pitcher Kyle Farnsworth is absolutely jacked


(Audacy) Former Cubs pitcher Kyle Farnsworth was someone you wouldn't want to mess with on the mound during his big league career, and he certainly isn't someone you would want to mess with now either.

Farnsworth shared his new physique on social media Tuesday afternoon and the tall, thin right-hander is now a menacing bodybuilder.

Farnsworth revealed that he's four days out from his first body-building competition and has been on a no-carb diet these past few days.

That’s a far cry from the 6-foot-4, 230-pound pitcher who played for nine teams over a 16-year MLB career.

Farnsworth is probably most notably remembered for his involvement in a few brawls, particularly one in 2003 while with the Chicago Cubs when he body-slammed Reds pitcher Paul Wilson.

Farnsworth threw up and in at Wilson, who was attempting a bunt, and Wilson charged the mound, only for Farnsworth to pick him up and pummel him into the ground.

Two years later, while with the Detroit Tigers, Farnsworth did it again to the Royals' Jeremy Affeldt just for looking at him the wrong way during a benches-clearing incident.

So, it's probably no surprise that Farnsworth has taken the time in his post-baseball life to bulk up and enter a career of body-building.
