If you saw Jake Arrieta walking around today, there’s a good chance you wouldn’t even recognize him. The current Cubs pitcher just shaved off his beard, and looks like a completely new person!

Arrieta’s wife, Brittany Arrieta, tweeted this photo of him on Sunday:

Arrieta’s beard has basically become his trademark, so it’s going to take fans some getting used to for his new look. (For reference, here’s what he looked like before…)

To be fair, Arrieta was clean-shaven when he played for the Orioles. But that was a long time ago, and most people forgot.

As you can see from the below tweets, it may take some time for people to get adjusted to his new look.

Maybe Arrieta is preparing himself for No Shave November?

Whatever the reason, we think he looks great. Be sure to pick up your own razor subscription to sport a new look just like his!
