MLB athletes choosing their desired apparel brand isn't usually one of those national stories like it is in the NBA, but it's worth noting there is one sneaky brand that is starting to poach some big names in the sport of baseball.
Adidas isn't the official brand of Major League Baseball, but they are on the up and up, as both Trea Turner and Anthony Rendon of the Washington Nationals have switched to Adidas. They were previously with Under Armour.
Random apparel tidbit I find interesting: Turner and Rendon are now adidas. They were Under Armour before. Adidas on the come up.— Jorge Castillo (@jorgecastillo) February 16, 2018
Those aren't the only two big time players switching their allegiances to Adidas. Boston Red Sox ace Chris Sale is moving on from Mizuno to Adidas, while shortstop Xander Bogaerts is leaving New Balance for the Three Stripe Life.

Travis Shaw, care to comment?
Another one. ANOTHER ONE.
What's going on? Did Adidas just get a massive round of funding with the express purpose of poaching baseball's young stars. Sorry, Mizuna, but you're burnt.
The reason for this change is unknown, but give it up to Adidas for beefing up their brand.
