With the new rules regarding how many mound visits each team gets during the course of a game, meetings between pitchers and catchers have become all the more precious in 2018. These moments are usually an opportunity to discuss strategy, or give the pitcher a chance to take a second and refocus before locking back into the next pitch.

Here are some other highlights from baseballers on social media over the last week...
Andrew McCutchen played an unusual game of catch with his wife: 

Reds pitcher and Long Island native Sal Romano got to pitch against the Mets at Citi Field in front of a lot of familiar faces:

It's been an eventful week for Brewers prospect Demi Orimoloye, and his Team Canada teammate and Marlins prospect Tristan Pompey couldn't get enough of it. First, Orimoloye hit a huge home run and admired it:

Then, he made a nice catch in the center field and crashed into the wall:

Orimoloye wasn't the only prospect crashing into outfield walls recently. Reds prospect Taylor Trammell had to leave the game after his run-in with the wall, but he wanted to make sure everyone knew he was doing okay:

Blue Jays prospect Kevin Smith still doesn't understand why you can't walk through a drive-thru:

Phil Hughes gave up a big home run to Brewers All-Star Christian Yelich and sarcastically insisted he just got lucky:

Indians rookie Shane Bieber was not impressed with Trevor Bauer's walk-off celebration:

Cardinals rookie Harrison Bader doesn't quite know what he's doing while taking his lead at first base, but he is amused by it:
