Brothers in Baseball - A Sports Review


Image of two brothers

Over the many years of Major League Baseball, there have been quite a few sets of brothers who have played the game. Along with several fathers & sons and even grandsons of former players.

Most of the brothers that fans have watched have played for different teams. What makes the two sets of brothers featured here unique is the fact that they are currently playing for the same team. 

The Naylor Brothers of the Cleveland Guardians

Players with the Cleveland Guardians

Noah-Gibson “Bo” Naylor is a Canadian professional baseball catcher for the Cleveland Guardians. Born in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Bo is 24 years old. He made his MLB debut with the Guardians on October 1, 2022.

Joshua-Douglas “Josh” Naylor, brother of Bo Naylor, is a Canadian professional baseball first baseman and outfielder for the Cleveland Guardians. He made his MLB debut on May 24, 2019, for the San Diego Padres and began playing for the Cleveland Guardians in 2020. Josh is 26 years old.

Note: Josh and Bo Naylor have a younger brother, Myles (age 19) who is currently playing for the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball. A Brotherly Love of Baseball indeed. 

The Rogers Brothers of the San Francisco Giants

Tyler and Taylor Rogers are both relief pitchers for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. What makes them especially unique is not only are they brothers playing for the same team and playing the same position, but they are also identical twins!

Born 30 seconds apart in 1990 (Taylor is the oldest), the Rogers twins are 33 years old. They are mirror image identical twins - Taylor is left-handed and Tyler is right-handed. 

*Note: Taylor & Tyler Rogers became the 5th set of twins to play in the MLB.


A Sports Review of Baseball Brothers featuring the Naylor Brothers playing for the Cleveland Guardians and the Rogers Twins pitching for the San Francisco Giants. 

Many other brothers, in the past and currently, have become professional baseball players. If you do a search online, you can find multiple stories about them.  My favorites were the Molina Brothers (Bengie, Yadier and Jose) who became the first family of catchers in Major League Baseball. 

If you follow professional baseball (as I do fervently), you will enjoy watching the baseball brothers featured here and reading other stories about brothers in baseball.

    Pat, I really enjoyed reading your post. Thanks for the entertainment.

    1. I knew this story would appeal to another baseball fan, Mary Beth. Thanks for your visit.

  2. Great idea for a post! Love the top pic :>

    1. Thanks, Tracey. You must be a baseball fan. :)

  3. What a fun post, Elf! I enjoyed reading about these two sets of pro basketball twins.

  4. I can only imagine how much fun it would be for two brothers to play on the same team, at the same time. I bet they can read each other better than any other players. No doubt, together they make a team harder to beat. As for the twins, I know I would have to look at which arm they are throwing with to tell them apart! It is a good thing one is left handed and the other one right handed. One looks slightly taller in the picture (is that true?) Although, we would have to see them side by side to note a difference in height. I would also imagine constantly being compared to your brother might get old for all of them though.

    1. Taylor and Tyler, in addition to being identical twins, also have nearly identical stats in their world of baseball pitching. Quite an accomplishment. And, you are observant about their height in the picture. Taylor is 6'3" tall and Tyler is 6'5".

  5. I know of course there are Canadian Baseball players, but I rarely assume there are many - nice to see them here lol - Reading the given names Taylor and Tyler had me thinking how many times the parents tripped on those names, because all my guys are "J's" and I don't recommend it in hindsight - lol - I'll call 3 wrong names - oh and these baseball brothers are right and left handed, very cool. My fourth son is the only left handed child in our family.

    1. Cool that you picked up on the fact that the Naylor Brothers are Canadian, Barbara. I see that their city of birth, Mississauga, is on the western edge of Toronto, so you might be familiar with the area. :)

  6. Thank you for your fun article! How interesting reading about these brothers and twins in pro basketball.
