Ryan Dempster was dealt from the Chicago Cubs to the Texas Rangers at Tuesday's trade deadline, and Shane Victorino, Hunter Pence and Jonathan Broxton all wound up on new teams.
Matt Garza, Josh Johnson and Joe Blanton stayed as the window closed for clubs to make trades without having players pass through waivers.
The faded Philadelphia Phillies sent Victorino to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Pence to San Francisco. Cincinnati got Broxton from Kansas City.
The deals capped a busy two-week period that also saw Zack Greinke, Ichiro Suzuki, Hanley Ramirez, Anibal Sanchez and Francisco Liriano change teams as general managers assessed whether they had a chance to make this year's expanded playoffs or whether to start rebuilding for 2013.
