Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a home run, one RBI and two runs scored against the Angels on Thursday.
There has been very little to talk about in regards to the Rangers season, but Beltre has certainly done his part. He is now first in the American League in batting (.341 BA) which has been aided by hitting .429 (16-for-40) in the month of July. Even if his recent surge was to fall off slightly in the second half, his power production (13 HR and 50 RBI) will be enough to keep him near the top of the rankings at third base.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
