Anibal Sanchez has been on the disabled list since August 10, and had a throwing session yesterday. It did not go well:
Sanchez was initially expected to miss 3-4 weeks, and now that’s out the window. Get used to more Robbie Ray and his plus-seven ERA as you chase the Royals, Tigers fans.
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.
