And here's a link to the spreadsheet of career team records for active players.

It might be entertaining to consider this spreadsheet sorted by current team. First number is total players, second is players with a career percentage over (or equaling) .500, third is players with a career percentage under .500:
Arizona: 4, 2, 2
Atlanta: 6, 6, 0
Baltimore: 5, 1, 4
Boston: 7, 5, 2
CHI Cubs: 0, 0, 0
CHI Sox: 4, 1, 3
Cincinnati: 6, 4, 2
Cleveland: 4, 2, 2
Colorado: 4, 3, 1
Detroit: 6, 5, 1
Houston: 0, 0, 0
Kansas City: 5, 1, 4
LA Angels: 4, 4, 0
LA Dodgers: 11, 9, 2
Miami: 3, 1, 2
Milwaukee: 5, 2, 3
Minnesota: 3, 1, 2
none (players released or retired): 10, 3, 7
NY Mets: 1, 0, 1
NY Yankees: 12, 9, 3
Oakland: 4, 1, 3
Philadelphia: 3, 3, 0
Pittsburgh: 5, 1, 4
San Diego: 3, 0, 3
San Francisco: 2, 1, 1
Seattle: 3, 1, 2
St. Louis: 4, 3, 1
Tampa Bay: 7, 4, 3
Texas: 5, 4, 1
Toronto: 7, 4, 3
Washington: 5, 1, 4
There's a lot of commentary here on the states and attitudes of the various teams...

For all the words and phrases that have made it into the British lexicon, I am so glad that "winningest" and "losingest" have so far been strongly resisted.

For the home run trot injury, this is answered in rule 5.10, which tells us that if an "accident" happens to the runner, another runner may finish the trot around the bases.
I don't know if an ejection would be such an "accident".
However, the same rule 5.10 says that the umpire shall call time (and the ball is dead), when "an umpire orders a player or any other person removed from the playing field."
