Just when you thought this Spring couldn't get much more strange

The Astros go and re-sign Fernando Nieve, after being released by the Pirates.

He'll join on a minor-league deal.

So to recap: The Astros have signed a pitcher they put on waivers, was let go by the Mets, and Pirates, and re-signed to a minor-league deal. Emphasis: The Pirates thought, "Eh. No thanks."

Chances are they are just signing him to fill out a the minor league roster, and to have someone with big league experience in case someone like a long reliever goes down.
