Kyle Farnsworth was someone you would want to mess with on the mound and he certainly is not someone you would want to mess with now, either.
The former MLB pitcher shared his new physique on social media Tuesday afternoon and the tall, thin right-hander is now a menacing bodybuilder.
Farnsworth revealed that he is 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 20-year career in MLB.
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 opposing pitcher Paul Wilson.
Farnsworth threw up and in at Wilson, who was attempting a bunt, and the Reds pitcher 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 Royals Jeremy Affeldt just for looking at him the wrong way during a benches-clearing incident.
So, it is probably no surprise that Farnsworth has taken the time in his post-baseball life to bulk up and enter a career of body-building.
