The Indians’ quest to stay relevant took a major hit yesterday, but they did have a day off to watch the NFL Network all night.

But the Indians could remain very relevant in the future due to a farm system that continues to improve. Oscar Mercado has been showing fans a preview of that this spring, with a 4-digit OPS thus far.

Around baseball

• Manny Machado hit his first doesn’t-count Padres home run.

• Jacob deGrom was the only reason to watch the 2018 Mets.

• The Royals chose Brad Keller as their opening day starter. Yes, really.

• Scooter Gennett helped a large object scoot across an MLB field.

• The Mariners sent Justus Sheffield to MiLB camp.

And, most irrelevant of all,

• The Mets sent Tim Tebow to MiLB camp.
