Michael Wacha is now a model, apparently.
(Insert joke about having more free time since he’s on DL, etc., etc., etc.)
In this Month’s issue of GQ Magazine (the one with Emily Ratajkowski on the cover – yes, the same girl that was in Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines Video’), we find a special advertising section (that’s labeled as such) meant to look like content (hence the short little bio about Wacha).
The campaign is funded by Mossimo, a clothing line that since 2000 has been sold exclusively at Target.
And while that might or might not mean anything to you, kudos to CAA Baseball (his agency) for reeling in a huge brand for Wacha. By diversifying their client so early in his career and doing so with such a mainstream company, they’re setting Wacha up to be one of the more marketable faces in the sport down the road.
You know, if they figure out this shoulder business.
For now, though? Enjoy the Cardinals first pitcher slash model…
