Rosenthal tweets that Nick Green has signed with the Dodgers.  He’d be Rafael Furcal’s backup.

Green had 309 plate appearances as he became the 2,406th (approximately) dead end in the Red Sox’ Murphy-Brown-secretaryish, Spinal-Tap-drummerish search for a permanent solution at shortstop.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
