Freshly acquired Yankees outfielder Alex Verdugo adhered to the team’s facial hair regulations this week, unveiling his clean-shaven appearance in a photo release on Thursday. Immediately, Yankees fans revel in him losing his trademark beard.

Alex Verdugo is expected to take his place in left field in the Yankees‘ Opening Day lineup and will likely share playing time with Trent Grisham based on whether a right-handed pitcher (Verdugo) or a left-handed one (curiously, Grisham with his atypical reverse splits) is on the mound. He is at full pace to get ready for that. The first confirmation came in the form of his clean-shaven face, a key requirement for the Yankees players.

Once parting away with his trademark bread, Alex Verdugo unveiled a cute baby face in sharp contrast to his intimidating facial appearance in Boston.
