No messing around here, the headline is exactly what you're about to watch, should you so choose. Miles Mikolas is making his Rangers debut Wednesday night as the starting pitcher. Back in his Padres days, he ate a live lizard on camera.

NSFW (that's not safe for work) language pops in toward the end (around the 1:55 mark), but you should be done watching by then. He's done doing the deed and it's just the post-meal laughter/celebration.

The 25-year-old right-hander was 5-1 with a 3.22 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings for Triple-A Round Rock before getting the call to the bigs.
