Baby face: Jake Arrieta shaves off beard, wife proudly shares new look

Jake Arrieta looks almost unrecognizable without his trademark beard.

Cubs fans would not recognize Jake Arrieta if they passed him on the street.

The 2015 Cy Young winner is sporting a fresh new look after shaving off his trademark beard.

No word on why Arrieta went clean shaven, but his wife, Brittany, apparently liked it. She shared a photo of the new Jake on Twitter.

Arrieta began sporting the beard while still with the Orioles in 2013, and Cubs fans have never known him any other way. Until now.
