Scott Servais is a man of his word.

Back in June, Mariners closer Edwin Diaz made a daring deal with his manager: if he reaches 50 saves, Servais has to get his same haircut. Servais agreed, and why wouldn’t he? Managers should always want to motivate their players.

So here’s how Diaz wears his hair:

Well, last Saturday night, Diaz notched his 50th save, and planning commenced. According to Seattle Times beat writer Ryan Divish, Robinso Cano and Jean Segura helped fly out Diaz’s barber to San Diego, where the Mariners are currently playing the Padres.

Here’s an ecstatic Diaz reminding Servais of the deal:

The appointment was set for 2 p.m. in the Petco Park visitors clubhouse, and media were not allowed in. Lucky for us, Diaz live-streamed the whole ordeal on his personal Instagram account. Servais seemed thrilled.

Here’s the final comparison:

Props to the skipper for holding up his end of the deal. Really, it’s a small price to pay for a closer boasting a 1.97 ERA and converting 92.6 percent of his save opportunities.
