AJ Cassavell | After throwing just 29 pitches in his season debut, Dinelson Lamet left Wednesday’s game with forearm tightness. If Lamet ultimately requires Tommy John, it’s a devastating blow for the Padres who also lost Adrian Morejon to the same procedure. The good news is that the Padres have the depth to weather the loss of two pitchers, but the Padres are certainly worse off without Lamet.

Shakeia Taylor | Baseball Prospectus $: Jazz Chisholm’s major league career is off to a tremendous start, and his slash line is only part of why. Chisholm’s style of play makes one wonder why baseball isn’t always this much fun.

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA: After a few years of looking mortal, Kenley Jansen is starting to look like his old self. His velocity and spin rates are up, and his resurgence has been a huge reason that the Dodgers are on pace to break the regular season win totals.

Quick Hits

After a 1-7 start, the Oakland A’s can do no wrong. They extended their win-streak to 11 with a sweep of the Twins on Wednesday, winning on a two-run walk off error.

The Royals set up a walk-off of their own with a safety squeeze to tie the game. Salvador Perez eventually hit a game-winning double.

Javier Báez did not swing and miss on this slider, hitting a grand slam and helping the Cubs to a 16-4 win.
