Aroldis Chapman racked up his 21st save after he struck out the side for a perfect ninth inning against the Pirates on Sunday.
The month of July has been very good to Chapman as he's now made six scoreless appearances, earned five saves and posted a 14:2 K:BB over just six innings. He has done nothing but re-establish his elite status after missing the beginning of the season because of a line drive that got bounced off his face during spring training.

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
