10 Comments

From Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune comes the following photo of Rays manager Joe Maddon getting a close shave Sunday in camp. Matt Joyce, Ben Zobrist, James Loney, and Jake McGee were among the other participants in “Fortune Favors The Bald,” a charity event for pediatric cancer.

Wil Myers opted against shaving off his mop, but he did make a $500 donation.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
