SECAUCUS, N.J. -- Jose Reyes' hair was sold for a fraction of the price of the entire All-Star shortstop.

Five days after Reyes had his dreadlocks cut off on live television to comply with the dress code of the Miami Marlins, the auction for his hair ended with a winning bid of $10,200, MLB Network said Wednesday.

Reyes left the Mets in December for a six-year, $106-million deal with the Marlins.
