Grady Sizemore’s comeback has hit a snag

19 Comments

Grady Sizemore’s comeback was a helluva story when he made the Red Sox out of spring training and hit a home run in his second at-bat of the season, but unfortunately things haven’t been going so well lately.

Sizemore hit .343 with two homers and a .966 OPS through 10 games after not playing in the majors since 2011, but over the past 24 games he’s hit just .167 with zero homers and a .491 OPS.

The good news is that Sizemore is healthy after having his career derailed by injuries. The bad news is that manager John Farrell dropped hints to Joon Lee of WEEI.com that the Red Sox may be getting close to cutting back on his playing time.

It’s hard not to root for Sizemore, so hopefully he gets back on track quickly and can put together a nice run in Boston, but considering he hasn’t been productive since 2009 at some point it’s also tough to blame the Red Sox if they decide to cut bait.

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.
