Jose Reyes isn’t the only Marlins star cutting off his hair for charity

Jose Reyes cutting his hair and selling it for $10,200 in a charity auction was such a big deal (or there was such little in the way of real news) that MLB Network broadcast the clipping of his dreadlocks live in prime time.

Reyes’ new teammate, ace Josh Johnson, didn’t get quite the same attention for shaving his head in the name of charity today, but Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald has photographic proof that it happened nonetheless:

Johnson is donating the contents of that bucket to the “Locks for Love” charity that “provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss.”

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
