Michael Bourn (hamstring) resumed his rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Thursday. Bourn started in center field and hit leadoff, playing seven innings and going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.
Bourn played in his first rehab game Tuesday, took Wednesday off and jumped back into the fray on Thursday. He should start to move to back-to-back days soon enough as the Indians are expecting him to return to the lineup by the middle of next week. Barring any setbacks, you should be able to use him next week, however, how green a light he gets regularly is unknown considering the injury.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
