I am not a fan of in-game interviews, but this one is amazing:
Interviewing a bird … We’ve now seen it all.

Various News and Notes
According to Mark Zuckerman, the Nationals are calling up Joe Ross to start tomorrow. Ross did not fare well in his first three starts, especially in regards to keeping the ball in the park. He was better at limiting the damage from the long ball in AAA, though the result weren’t great anyhow. It is best to keep him reserved in most formats for the time being, if you are in deep enough formats to already own him.
According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Corey Kluber is scheduled to make a rehab assignment Thursday. Kluber has been dealing with lower back soreness which cut short two of his outings before landing him on the DL. It has been a slower recovery than expected, but it is a good sign that he is on assignment. Carlos Carrasco is also expected to make his regularly scheduled start today after leaving his last start with pectoral tightness.
Denard Span is absent from the Giants lineup on Monday due to a bruised left hand. He is considered day-to-day at this time and is not expected to miss much time.
According to Evan Woodberry, Anthony Gose has been converted to a pitcher. Yeah, this isn’t really exciting news in terms of fantasy, but it is a slow news day and I found this shocking when I read about it. The early reports are good too:
