Lyle Overbay was DFA’d by the Dbacks last night, but he’ll likely find a new home soon:
This is on top of the interest the Reds were reported to have in Overbay last night.
Overbay is hitting .292/.367/.448 with two homers in 110 plate appearances this year. Which is useful, though he is really fighting it at the moment.
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.
