The Magic sent Bismack Biyombo and two future second-round picks to Charlotte, which traded Mozgov to Orlando. The Magic also got guard Jerian Grant from the Bulls in the deal completed late Saturday night.

Chicago acquired Julyan Stone from Charlotte in the trade that saves the Bulls about $2 million.

Joc Pederson (L), 35 percent, Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies (RHP German Marquez): Marquez has been much more effective away from Coors Field, but lefty batters have still pummeled him for a .309/.369/.514 slash line this season. This creates an enticing spot for Pederson, who is smashing righties to the tune of a .293/.385/.624 slash line, including a .309/.387/.945 triple slash with 10 homers in June.

It’s our new family tradition, she said. We love to kick off the summer here and we love to dress up.

Is it accurate to describe the American League East as an epic playoff race? I believe so. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees are both on pace to Cam Newton Jersey win more than 105 games. The last time two teams in the same division won 100 games was 2001, when the Seattle Mariners and Oakland A’s did it in the AL West. Yes, the wild card is a fallback, but you don’t want to win 105 games and then have to beat a pitcher like James Paxton to keep your season alive.

The FanGraphs playoff odds favor the Yankees, giving them a 67 percent chance to win the division compared with just 33 percent for the Red Sox. I’m surprised the Yankees are 2-to-1 favorites to win the East, especially since there are five solid reasons why the Red Sox will win it.
