Manager Ron Roenicke indicated it might be time to start moving away from the second-base platoon and start giving Scooter Gennett starts against lefties.
It makes sense, as Rickie Weeks is just two for his last 27, while Gennett has milt-hit games in six of his last seven games. With additional playing time, Gennett's value gets a considerable bump. He's currently sporting a .310/.347/.469 triple-slash with four home runs, 30 runs, and 20 RBI in 248 PA. The upside isn't sky-high, but hitting atop a potent Brewers lineup with good contact and on-base skills should make an asset in runs and a non-zero in steals. He's a decent MI option in mixed leagues should he formally stage the coup de etat.ANALYST:
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
