Pirates put Oviedo and Endy on 60-day DL and replace them with Grandal and Fleming.

There was some weird Instagram posts from Domingo German.
He followed Oneil Cruz and changed his theme to black and gold before taking it down.

Do they sign Keller?
And if so, how much?

Opening day is always one of my favorite days of baseball. I don't think the formal "naming" of the opening day starter was always a thing. For about 25 of these teams, we already have a good idea of who it will be. For the other five or so toss-ups, I personally wouldn't want to make a big deal about it if I was the manager.

After going to spring training practices this week, I will say almost all players were friendly and nice. Two guys that went way out of their way to stay late and engage with the fans were Ke'Bryan Hayes and Termarr Johnson on multiple days. Aroldis Chapman, Paul Skenes, Edward Olivares, Endy Rodriguez (injured), Mitch Keller and several others went out of their ways for fans. They don't have to do that, but they did.

Other notes:
I only saw Henry Davis practicing at catcher (not the outfield). Bae was only second base (not outfield). Triolo I only saw at thrid base. Connor Joe spent some time at first base and some in the outfield.
