Ian Desmond went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Padres on Saturday.
Desmond is just 4-for-24 (.167) over his last seven games, but three of those hits were home runs, giving him six RBI and five runs scored in that span. The .227 average is a little tough to take, but it's certainly a little easier to stomach when 12 home runs and 35 RBI come alongside it.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
