    The catcher worked a double-steal with Jean Segura after both got aboard with singles in the first inning. Realmuto continues to provide modest speed with six steals in nine attempts. The 30-year-old is slashing .264/.358/.436 with 10 home runs, 39 RBI and 37 runs scored across 316 plate appearances. He's hit safely in seven of his nine games (9-for-38) since the All-Star break.

    The infielder worked a double-steal with J.T. Realmuto in the first inning.

    Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Blasts 22nd homer
    29m ago

    Hoskins went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's 6-5 win over Washington.

    The first baseman got Philadelphia on the board with his sixth-inning blast. It was Hoskins' second homer in 11 games since the All-Star break and his 22nd of the year. The 28-year-old remains a slight drag on batting average (.232), but he's provided 62 RBI, 56 runs scored and three stolen bases through 412 plate appearances despite a career-low .807 OPS.

    Phillies' Andrew McCutchen: Walks it off Monday
    32m ago

    McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a double, a walk and two total runs scored in Monday's 6-5 win over Washington.

    The outfielder came up clutch with a walkoff homer off Washington closer Brad Hand. This was McCutchen's third long ball in his last eight games and his 18th of the year. The 34-year-old has added 55 RBI, 52 runs scored, six stolen bases and a .237/.357/.458 slash line across 381 plate appearances as a near-everyday presence in the lineup.

  • Archie Bradley PHI RP
    Phillies' Archie Bradley: Yields run but picks up win
    37m ago

    Bradley (5-1) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one inning, but he earned the win Monday versus Washington.

    Bradley wasn't able to keep Philadelphia's deficit to one run, but it didn't matter when Andrew McCutchen walked it off in the bottom of the ninth inning. The right-hander's 10-inning scoreless streak ended Monday, but he's been fairly solid in July, collecting four holds and two wins. The reliever has a 3.21 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 15:16 K:BB across 28 innings, which suggests he's enjoyed a fair amount of good luck so far.

    Nationals' Brad Hand: Dealt third straight loss
    41m ago

    Hand (5-5) allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out the only batter he retired as he took the loss versus Philadelphia on Monday.

    Monday marked Hand's third straight loss and second consecutive blown save. The southpaw allowed a double to Jean Segura and walked Bryce Harper before Andrew McCutchen hit a walkoff home run. Hand is now 20-for-25 in save chances with a 3.67 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB through 41.2 innings. If his struggles continue much longer, Daniel Hudson could begin to work his way into a share of the closer role. Hudson allowed two hits in a scoreless inning to earn his 15th hold Monday before Hand's meltdown.

  • Jonas Valanciunas MEM C
    Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Traded to Pelicans
    7h ago

    Valanciunas was traded to the Pelicans on Monday as part of a deal that brings Eric Bledsoe and Steven Adams to Memphis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The two teams will swap starting centers, but the Pelicans will pay a price for Memphis taking on a pair of less-than-desirable salary figures. New Orleans will send the No. 10 and No. 40 picks in Thursday's draft -- as well as a top-10-protected 2022 first-rounder (via the Lakers) -- to Memphis, which will send back the No. 17 and No. 51 picks in 2021. The trade will likely install Valanciunas as the Pelicans' top center alongside Zion Williamson, who struggled to fit in next to a non-spacer in Adams. Valanciunas is coming off of a career year in 2020-21, posting career highs in scoring (17.1 PPG) and rebounding (12.5 RPG) while adding 1.8 assists and 0.9 blocks per contest. Valanciunas finished the season 21-of-57 (36.8 percent) from three-point range, and there's a good chance he'll be asked to do more floor spacing in New Orleans -- especially if Williamson's jumper does not improve this offseason.

  • Eric Bledsoe NO SG
    Grizzlies' Eric Bledsoe: Shipped to Memphis
    7h ago

    Bledsoe was traded to Memphis on Monday, along with Steven Adams, as part of a package that brings Jonas Valanciunas to New Orleans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    New Orleans will also send the No. 10 pick in Thursday's draft and a top-10-protected 2022 first-round pick (via the Lakers) to Memphis, which will hand over the No. 17 pick in 2021. The two teams will also swap second-rounders. For Bledsoe, the Grizzlies will be his third team in as many seasons, though Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports that the Grizzlies' intention is to eventually re-route Bledsoe to another team. The former Kentucky standout mostly scuffled through his lone season in New Orleans, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.7 threes across 71 appearances. He posted his lowest scoring, rebounding and assist averages since the 2012-13 season, when he was a member of the Clippers.

  • Steven Adams NO C
    Grizzlies' Steven Adams: Dealt to Memphis
    7h ago

    Adams was traded to Memphis on Monday as part of a package that sends Jonas Valanciunas and the No. 17 pick in Thursday's draft to New Orleans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The two teams will swap starting centers, while Eric Bledsoe will also be shipped to Memphis. The Grizzlies will obtain the No. 10 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, as well as the Lakers' top-10-protected pick in 2022 from New Orleans. The Pelicans are essentially punting on the Adams-Zion Williamson frontcourt pairing in favor of going with a more space-able option in Valanciunas. In Memphis, Adams will have a good chance to fill Valanciunas' spot in the starting five, as he projects as a better fit alongside a floor spacer like Jaren Jackson.

  • Gary Trent Jr. TOR SG
    Raptors' Gary Trent: Gets qualifying offer from Raps
    9h ago

    Trent was extended a qualifying offer from the Raptors on Monday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.

    As expected, the Raptors will give themselves matching rights on Trent, who will become a restricted free agent this offseason. All indications are that Toronto aims to keep Trent around, though that could change if another team swoops in with a well-above-market offer. After coming over from Portland at the deadline, Trent appeared in 17 games and posted averages of 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals while drilling 2.6 threes per game at a 35.5 percent clip.

    Pistons' Frank Jackson: Gets qualifying offer from Pistons

    Jackson will become a restricted free agent as the Pistons have extended him a qualifying offer, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Jackson saw a larger role in his first season with the Pistons after spending his first two seasons in the NBA playing for the Pelicans. The 23-year-old guard played for 18.5 minutes and recorded 9.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists during the 2020-21 season. If Jackson doesn't return to Detroit next season, expect Cory Joseph and Josh Jackson to take on bigger roles. Since Jackson is going to be a restricted free agent, the Pistons will be able to match any offers the guard receives.

    Diallo has been extended a qualifying offer from the Pistons, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Diallo will become a restricted free agent and the Pistons will now be able to match any offer Diallo receives. The 22-year-old guard had a strong third season in the league, as he notched season averages of 11.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 23.6 minutes. If Diallo decides to leave Detroit this offseason, Wayne Ellington and Josh Jackson should see larger roles next season for the Pistons.
