R.I.P. Brian Wilson's luscious, strong, beautiful beard ... 'cause the MLB pitcher says his face-warmer is officially gone forever.
The ex-SF Giants/Dodgers fireballer was lookin' all jacked in L.A. this week -- sippin' on a blender full of a healthy-lookin' drink -- when we noticed his face was much more bare than we were used to.
FYI, Wilson's reportedly attempting an MLB comeback as a knuckleballer.
And by the look of his stubble, the beard is also trying to make a comeback.
Fingers crossed for both.
