July 31 -- Dempster, one of the trade season's biggest chips, went all the way to the wire before reaching a resolution. The Cubs sent Dempster to Texas -- agreeing moments before the deadline -- for a package that consisted of Minor League prospects. Dempster had been rumored for several days to be headed for the Dodgers and was reported to be unwilling to waive his 10-and-5 no-trade veto rights to go anywhere else. But the Cubs and Dodgers were unable to work out a deal and Dempster agreed to join Texas.
