Non-tendered by the Braves in November, reliever Peter Moylan has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.
When healthy Moylan has been one of the best setup men in the league, posting a 2.59 ERA in 261 career innings, but he’s missed most of the past two seasons following shoulder surgery.
At age 34 the side-arming right-hander will try to win a middle relief job in what is now a pretty crowded Dodgers bullpen.
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.
