It seems Giancarlo Stanton isn’t the only MLB-er who has caught Vanessa Hudgens’ eye.
Over the weekend, the 31-year-old actress was photographed with Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Cole Tucker, 10 months after splitting from longtime boyfriend Austin Butler.
In the photos published Sunday by the Daily Mail, Hudgens is seen smiling as she embraces 24-year-old Tucker following a date night in Los Angeles.
As the photographs made the rounds on social media, Twitter weighed in on the unexpected pairing, calling out the Pirates’ sub-par expectations.
“Cole Tucker really cuffed Vanessa Hudgens…. chase your dreams kids,” one user quipped.
“Cole Tucker going on a date with Vanessa Hudgens is the greatest accomplishment of any Pirates player in 20 years,” another commented.
“Raise your hand if you had ‘cole tucker dates vanessa hudgens’ on your 2020 bingo card,” another posted.
The 24th overall selection in the 2014 MLB draft, Tucker made his major league debut in 2019, when he hit a game-winning home run in his first career hit. But he has only .215 with three home runs through 93 games across two seasons.
The Pirates finished the shortened 2020 season with a record of 19-41, last place in the NL Central division.
Hudgens, who currently stars in Netflix’s “The Princess Switch: Switched Again,” was previously linked to the Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma in January.
A rep for Hudgens did not immediately return The Post’s request for comment.
