The beard will be a mere afterthought once McCarthy reports to the Yankees, who have a policy of no facial hair beyond a mustache.
McCarthy's wife, Amanda, is thrilled about the thought of her man clean-shaven.
Haha @BMcCarthy32 you have to shave that nasty thing growing on your face! I WIN— Amanda McCarthy (@Mrs_McCarthy32) July 6, 2014
McCarthy only has some short scruff, so it shouldn't be a major change for him. But if the Yankees acquire Brian Wilson, get your buzzers ready!
