Adam Rubin of ESPN NewYork reports that the Mets have “put the wheels in motion” toward placing Jose Reyes on the disabled list. Which, given that I figured all of that involves nothing more than an email or a fax or something, can’t be a terribly complicated procedure requiring wheels to actually be put in motion, but it’s a nice turn of phrase all the same.
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.
