J. Winker - LF
Jesse Winker was ejected from Thursday's game against the Indians.
Winker was not happy with a called third strike, and he was run from the game after making his feelings known to Jerry Meals. On top of that, Reds manager David Bell was also given the ole heave-ho.

Khris Davis went 2-for-3 with two RBI to help the A's beat the Rangers 6-4 on Thursday.
Davis has been sitting against righties lately, and even against the lefty today, he was down in the seventh spot in the lineup. He was also removed for a pinch-runner after singling in the seventh, costing him a fourth at-bat in the game. Davis is 5-for-27 with one homer, four RBI and 10 strikeouts in 31 plate appearances.

A. Tejeda - SS
Anderson Tejeda went 2-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and a steal in his major league debut Thursday against the A's.
The 22-year-old Tejeda had never played a game above high-A ball before taking Mike Fiers deep today. He was supposed to be in Double-A this season after missing much of 2019 and hitting .234/.315/.386 in 43 games for high-A Down East when healthy. He's expected to be a short-term fill in for Rougned Odor, but if he keeps surprising with the bat, he could force the Rangers to play him.

W. Calhoun - LF
Willie Calhoun went 0-for-5 on Thursday, leaving him 1-for-23 on the season.
Even though Calhoun has struggled, the Rangers have had him batting third in each of his last two starts. He has hit the ball harder than his .043 average suggests, but it's still been a rough go for him since suffering a broken jaw this spring and a hip flexor injury in summer camp.

Dylan Bundy turned in his third career complete game and struck out 10 in the Angels' 6-1 win over the Mariners on Thursday.
Bundy's fastball velocity has continued to slip, but he's making much frequent use of his slider this year and he spotted the fastball unusually well today. He issued no free passes in this one, and he's walked just two of the 80 batters he's faced this season, which is about one-third of his usual rate. Bundy is certainly a better bet now that he's out of Baltimore and increasing his slider usage, but he still has a very hittable fastball and he's a durability concern. Don't go overpaying for him now.

T. Walker - SP
Taijuan Walker surrendered four runs in 3 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Angels.
Walker looked fine early, allowing only a solo shot to Shohei Ohtani through three innings, but he walked three, hit a batter and gave up a pair of singles before being pulled in the fourth. He was coming off a gem against the A's last Friday, but this illustrates why he's too risky to use in mixed leagues.
Added 7:27 pm (EST)
Max Stassi hit his fourth homer in just 21 at-bats this season Thursday against the Mariners.
Stassi was solid enough offensively and defensively to look like a potential starter in Houston two years ago, but then he went bust as Robinson Chirinos's backup last year, hitting just .136/.211/.167 with one homer in 147 plate appearances for the Astros and Angels. Now he has four homers in 24 plate appearances this year. The Angels signed Jason Castro to start, but they ought to keep riding Stassi while he's hot.
Added 7:24 pm (EST)
S. Ohtani - DH
Shohei Ohtani had a solo homer and walked Thursday in his return to the Angels' lineup.
Ohtani is expected to be a fixture at DH the rest of the way. That's disappointing for those fond of unique baseball players, but it's probably the best thing for his fantasy value. He has three homers in 30 at-bats (though just two other hits to go with them).
