Normally modest and mild-mannered, Cubs outfielder Tyler Colvin has unleashed a new beast this spring by taking every opportunity to show Mesa-area ladies the chest scar he incurred late last season when he was impaled by a broken bat.

“What can I say, chicks dig the scar,” said a shirtless Colvin, who has a new lease on life after fearing his days may be numbered following the scary incident. “Randy Wells isn’t going to be the only one partying every night until 5 a.m. this summer.”

Colvin is on a torrid pace this spring, pulling in chicks at a rate not seen in the Valley of the Sun since Mark Grace was a rookie with the Cubs in 1988.

“I just hope I don’t go into a slump,” said Colvin, of Grace’s infamous slump-busting techniques. “Things could get a little messy.”
