Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 18th save after throwing a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins on Tuesday. He allowed one hit.
It was another strong outing for Papelbon who has now allowed just one run in his last 12 appearances and has dropped his overall ERA to 1.48 with a 25:9 K:BB over 30.1 innings. Continue to ride him this season, but be conscious of the fact that he is likely to be the first guy traded when the Phillies open up their fire sale near the trade deadline.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
