Worth noting

• Players continued filtering into Pirates camp, the day before position players' reporting date: Andrew McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez, Josh Harrison and non-roster outfielder Felix Pie made it nearly a full house.

• Kent Tekulve, Bill Virdon and Manny Sanguillen are back in the black and gold for Spring Training.

• How I spent my winter vacation: McDonald became a first-time daddy, Tony Watson became a first-time husband ... and Chase d'Arnaud became a first-time home buyer.
