Aug. 1: E-Rod blocks trade to Dodgers (report)
The Dodgers had a trade in place to acquire Eduardo Rodriguez from the Tigers, but the left-hander invoked his 10-team no-trade clause to block the deal, reports ESPN's Jeff Passan.

Los Angeles also missed out on Justin Verlander, who was traded back to Houston after being pursued by the Dodgers and others.

The Dodgers ultimately came away from the Deadline with several new players on their roster, including pitchers Lance Lynn, Joe Kelly and Ryan Yarbrough; infielder Amed Rosario and utility man Kiké Hernández.
