BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) Andrew McCutchen's trademark dreadlocks won't be heading north with the rest of the Pittsburgh Pirates star.

The 2013 National League Most Valuable Player spent a portion of his team's off day on Wednesday at the mercy of his barber, who clipped off McCutchen's long locks and gave him a decidedly more aerodynamic do heading into the 2014 regular season.

McCutchen posted a video on YouTube saying ''it was time for a new change'' before showing the process. He laughed a bit as he watched them getting snipped one by one. The 28-year-old then had a couple of small designs shaved in and clapped his hands after getting a look at the finished product.

McCutchen says he will auction off the dreadlocks through mlb.com, with all proceeds going to Pirates charities.
