Adrian Beltre went 2-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Mets.
Beltre is now riding a nine-game hit streak, which features two home runs, seven RBI and six runs scored. He is now sitting on a .336 average with 10 home runs and 45 RBI despite missing a significant amount of time earlier in the season. As long as he is able to avoid an extended stint on the disabled list in the second half, he will finish as one of the top fantasy third basemen once again. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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
