Randy Wolf hasn’t pitched since September of 2012, sitting out all this year following Tommy John elbow surgery, but the 36-year-old left-hander is making a comeback.
Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Wolf is scheduled to throw for interested teams later this month in Los Angeles and is looking to sign somewhere willing to give him a shot at winning a rotation spot.
Even setting aside the injury Wolf had an ugly 5.68 ERA in 158 innings for the Brewers and Orioles in 2012, although he was a solid mid-rotation starter for the previous decade.
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.
