Concerning news here on Rays left-hander Matt Moore, who left his start Monday against the Royals due to left elbow discomfort and was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday …

It’s promising that Moore feels good, but any visit with Dr. James Andrews is reason for alarm.

Moore, 24, owns a 3.53 ERA (108 ERA+), 1.329 WHIP, and 8.8 K/9 in 347 career major league innings.

UPDATE, 10:18 p.m. ET: This is not good …

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.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

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.
