The MLB offseason takes place during the coldest months of the year and, as a result, it's imperative for these millionaires to have cozy homes to relax in. This not only includes geographic location, but it also includes the physical estate that each of these 15 players built in order to satisfy their needs. Let's take a look at the top mansions currently owned by some of today's best baseball players.

Ryan Braun purchased this 7,587 square foot Mediterranean-style mansion in Malibu, CA for .85 million. The home has a four-car garage, seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and includes a movie theater, swimming pool, spa, fountain, built in BBQ, three fireplaces, and ocean views. Regardless of how you may feel about him regarding steroids and the Biogenesis scandal, it's hard to deny Braun's home a Top-15 rank.

Even though he plays in the Bronx, Beltran calls Long Island his home. His mansion includes seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a home movie theater, gym, pool room and karaoke bar in the basement. He was selling the home for an "affordable" .8 million. However, the price has been recently dropped to .3 million. Considering the commute time and insane NYC traffic, perhaps Beltran is looking to live a bit closer to the city and save money on gas.

There aren't too many photos of Stephen Strasburg's house, but the ace of the Nationals still makes this list for having one of the most impressive backyard/pool areas in the entire MLB. One can only imagine what the rest of the house looks like when the backyard resembles a tropical island getaway.

12. Robinson Cano - Seattle Mariners

This is actually Robinson Cano's most impressive estate out of the multiple homes that he owns. The picture displayed is the backyard view of Cano's vacation home in Florida. It's quite an appropriate location for the vacation home of an MLB player, considering the offseason runs through the late fall and all of winter. Most people would love to have a regular home half the size of this, much less a vacation home.

At the tender age of 21, Jose Fernandez is easily the best young pitcher in baseball. Unfortunately, he suffered a season-ending injury this season that required Tommy John surgery. However, and luckily for him, Fernandez can rest up in total luxury in this incredible mansion that looks like it belongs to a retired CEO that's 40 years older than him.

Pujols is one of the greatest hitters that anyone has ever seen in baseball and his contract that exceeds 0 million was well-earned. Due to his success, Pujols can clearly enjoy luxuries that most people can't afford. For example, this French chateau-style mansion of his is close to his old playing city of St. Louis, and he has no intentions of selling it, even though he plays in Los Angeles now. One can only imagine what he's living in now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers' slugger is fortunate and blessed to live in this massive 11,000 square-foot Eastern seaboard/Cape Cod-style home that he purchased for .2 million. It includes extravagant amenities such as seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, outdoor and breakfast patio, swimming pool, wine cellar, theater room, and an exercise room. Additionally, his backyard looks big enough for him to host his own baseball games in the offseason.

7. Dan Uggla - San Francisco Giants

It's not always necessary to consistently be one of the best in order to live like one of the best. This is clearly proven when you take a look at Dan Uggla's .6 million estate. The European-style home has seven bedrooms, a fitness room, sauna and movie theater. Outside, it features a heated pool, outdoor cabana, putting green and basketball court. With the money that the Braves still owe him, he may be able to buy two more homes like this.

In addition to his getaway cabin in Minnesota, the Twins' first baseman also owns this beachfront home in south Florida. The Spanish-style home has four levels, an elevator, and a bathroom that is literally bigger than his "man cabin." It also includes a batting cage, workout room, billiards room, wet bars and refrigerators on three levels. Additionally, each of the four bedrooms has a lanai.

Considering what athletes pay for a house these days, the fact that Evan Longoria was able to purchase this waterfront home on the Venetian Isles for only .5 million is a steal. The 3,416 square foot house includes four bedrooms, three bathroom, media room, second-floor balcony and vaulted foyer. Additionally, each of the home’s entertaining rooms open onto a large covered patio with an outdoor kitchen, pool/spa, and fireplace.

Even though this home was sold for million, it's still worthy of a high spot on this list. The mansion is situated on over four acres with 16 bathrooms, seven bedrooms, batting cage, basketball court, putting green, and an infinity pool. Additionally, this monster home features an entryway with 35-feet custom-painted ceilings, inlaid marble floors, crystal chandelier, and a dual staircase. Beltre's new home in Texas is tiny in comparison.

3. Ryan Howard - Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies' slugger spared no expense when he decided to build this million mansion. This is clearly proven in the picture at the beginning where his beautiful kitchen is on display. Along with the typical multiple bedrooms/bathrooms,/garages, spa and gym, this mansion features a unique feature. Ryan Howard has a lazy river pool that will actually run through the house. No one else on this list can claim that feature.

If you think the outside is impressive, then let's review what's on the inside. This super mansion has nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two docks, a batting cage, billiards room, theater, and an epic infinity pool/outdoor kitchen patio setup. Even though A-Rod is now selling this estate for a hefty million, he might as well enjoy his time in there as much as possible due to the season-long suspension he's currently serving.

When it comes to mansions, Derek Jeter is to baseball what Tom Brady is to football. This incredible 30,875 square foot home has seven bedrooms, nine bathroom, a massive pool, two boat lifts, a drive-through portico and a pair of three-car garages on either end of the property. This mansion is truly legendary, and that makes for a perfect match for Jeter's legendary, Hall of Fame career. Therefore, Jeter's home is the obvious No. 1 MLB mansion.
