Mets RHP Jacob deGrom has found advantages to having shorter hair.
The Mets' starter got a haircut after the season ended and said the shorter hair could have an impact on his pitching.
"I did some research and I found that shorter hair actually will speed up my delivery and add two more miles to my fastball," he wryly said, according to the New York Daily News.
A Jacob deGrom boblehead featuring his shorter hair will be among the team's promotions at CitiField in 2018.
DeGrom went 15-10 with a 3.53 ERA in a career-high 31 starts for the Mets in 2017. Over the course of four seasons with the Mets, deGrom has gone 45-32 with a 2.98 ERA.
