Rasmus, who signed with the Rays last month, was getting plenty of attention for the new addition, which extended several inches below his chin. After getting a lot of criticism about his facial hair, he said goodbye. The Rays posted a photo on social media with the caption: "for all interested parties." The photo featured Rasmus rubbing his newly smooth-surfaced face.

The left-handed hitter owns a career .241 average and came over from the Houston Astros this offseason after previous stints with the St. Louis Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays. He is expected to compete for a rotation spot in the Rays' outfield.
