Dillon Gee surrendered six runs on six hits and tow walks while striking out six batters over five innings on Thursday against the Brewers.
Gee has now allowed 10 earned runs over his last two starts, falling to 4-3 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 11 starts. Up to this point Gee has been far from perfect, owning just a 51:18 K:BB rate and serving up nine home runs through 69.2 innings, and I cold get worse if his .225 BAA slips back to his career-average (.252 BAA). He will look to turn things around when he takes on the Phillies his next time on the mound. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings.
There was some late buzz that Rondo could join the Lakers, but instead he'll sign with the Sacramento Kings for a one-year, $10 million deal. Rondo's season fell apart in 2014 after being traded to Dallas, but expectations will still be high for the point guard due to his track record. That being said, last year's meltdown for Rondo was jarring, as his assists per game fell from 10.8 to 6.5, and his rebounds went from 7.5 to 4.5 per game. Hopefully Rondo will become better acclimated with his team in Dallas, as if he can get it together, Rondo could be a key piece in his new team's playoff bid. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Patrick Beverley has agreed to a four-year deal with the Rockets.
The 26-year old will return to Houston after spending his first three seasons with the team, averaging 8.9 points, 3 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game over his tenure. Last season was his best as a professional, and Beverley will look to earn an expanded role in the backcourt next season after averaging 30.8 minutes last season. The four-year deal is worth $25 million. Analysis: Ben Diamond
