    • Crick allowed no hits and one walk in a scoreless inning of Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Cubs. He struck out one batter. He bumped up his fastball velocity (92.9 mph) from last season (90.9 mph), though the speed is still down from his career average of 95.5 mph. Not surprisingly, Crick struggled with his control, throwing only eight of 17 pitches for strikes. The 28-year-old, who is slated for high-leverage situations, could easily move into the closer's picture if manager Derek Shelton decides Richard Rodriguez is better suited for a setup role or is traded.

    • Crick was reinstated from the COVID-19 IL on Sunday. The Pirates optioned right-hander Wil Crowe to make room for Crick on the active roster. As Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic noted, Crick was away due to the birth of his child and had to clear COVID protocols before rejoining the team. Richard Rodriguez already has a save for Pittsburgh, but manager Derek Shelton has suggested he likes Rodriguez more as a setup man. Perhaps Crick eventually enters the ninth-inning picture.

    • Crick (COVID-19 protocols) could rejoin the Pirates for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. He has been away from the team following the birth of his child and continues to go through COVID-19 protocols, but it sounds like he could be back before the end of this opening series. Richard Rodriguez is the presumed closer in Pittsburgh, but it's a very fluid situation and Crick could work his way into the saves mix in short order if he throws enough strikes.

    • Crick has been away from the team following the birth of his child, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Although Crick's absence was announced Thursday, he's been away from the team for several days. He's in the process of rejoining the Pirates, but he's currently on the COVID-19 injured list since he'll need to go through intake testing before he's cleared to return. It's unlikely that Crick will miss significant time to begin the season.

    • Crick threw an inning of scoreless relief Tuesday against Baltimore, allowing no hits and one walk while striking out a pair of batters, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports. He's in the high-leverage situational mix with Richard Rodriguez, though manager Derek Shelton has not named a closer. "The fact that our guys continue to get better and execute pitches makes it a more viable conversation of how we use those leverage situations," Shelton said. After posting a 90.9 mph average fastball velocity in 2020, Crick has bumped his velocity back up to the 93 mph range. While he still has trouble commanding his pitches -- he threw only nine of 18 pitches for strikes Tuesday -- the 28-year-old might still become an option for saves in 2021.
