Cubs’ Jake Arrieta shaves off beard after World Series win

CHICAGO – You might need to do a double-take to notice the man on the right in this picture.

It’s Jake Arrieta.

He’s hardly recognizable without his signature beard.

The Cubs former Cy Young winner had a full set of facial hair at the parade.

Arrieta switched to the clean shaven look sometime between then and when this photo was taken, Sunday afternoon.
