Ryan Goins went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Angels.
Goins' two-run home run in the ninth inning served as insurance in boosting the Jays to a 6-1 advantage. They would ultimately go on to win 6-2. This was Goins' first homer of the season and supplied his first two RBI in the process. Having received just 20 at-bats to date, there is no fantasy intrigue here.
Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a steal in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.
The Angels managed seven hits against Marcus Stroman, but all seven of those came from Trout, Albert Pujols and Andrelton Simmons. The rest of the team went a combined 0-for-19. For his part, Trout is off to a predictably blistering start this season, hitting .351/.424/.676 with five homers, 14 RBI and four steals.
Albert Pujols went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.
Pujols' RBI single off Marcus Stroman in the third inning represented the only run-scoring action in this game up until the eighth, when the Blue Jays broke through for four runs. For his part, veteran slugger Pujols is hitting .237/.284/.355 with two home runs and 15 RBI. He had a pair of three-hit showings against the Jays during this weekend's series, perhaps a sign that a little hot streak could be coming soon.
Daniel Wright was sharp in a spot-start no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday, tossing five shutout innings.
Wright drew the spot start due to the fact that Jesse Chavez was used as a reliever in Friday's extra-innings affair. He performed admirably in his spot duty, striking out three, walking two and surrendering just three hits on the afternoon. The 26-year-old right-hander figures to be sent down following the game, but could receive further spot start/long relief work down the road should the Angels need additional pitching fortification.
Marcus Stroman tossed a complete game in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Angels, surrendering two runs (on earned) on seven hits.
Second complete game of the season for Stroman, who struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. He surrendered solitary runs in the third and ninth innings, but otherwise kept the scoreboard clean. This was a huge rebound performance for Stroman, who was rocked for six runs on 11 hits by the Red Sox in his last outing. He will try to replicate Sunday's result in a home start against the Rays next time he toes the rubber.
Joey Gallo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Royals.
Gallo's solo homer off Scott Alexander in the sixth inning was his sixth of the season and bumped his RBI total to 14. He has now whacked four homers in his last five games. That tremendous power upside comes with a .213 average and a propensity to strike out, but if Gallo can figure out how to put the bat on the ball more consistently, look out.
Shin-Soo Choo went 2-for-4 in Sunday's win over the Royals.
Choo had been in an 0-for-10 skid leading into the weekend, but he snapped that with a single on Saturday and added two more hits on Sunday. Three singles might not seem like much, but Choo could use any kind of positive result at this point. He is hitting just .236/.364/.309 over his first 55 at-bats.
Joc Pederson was removed from Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks due to right groin tightness.
It's unclear when exactly the outfielder sustained the injury or how much time he may stand to miss. Kike Hernandez replaced him in center field on Sunday and would stand to see additional playing time if Pederson is forced to miss any time.
