The Yankees activated Jorge Posada from the 15-day disabled list this afternoon after the future Hall of Famer — I think so anyway? What say you? — recovered more quickly than anticipated from a hairline fracture in his right foot.
The Bombers were going to wait until after batting practice today to announce the
corresponding roster move. Makes me think that the guy they’re going to demote is throwing BP or something today.
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.
