Some big names were discussed before the July 31 deadline, but the players who didn't change teams have seen their marketability shift dramatically.
Tigers and Rangers highlight Monday's longest HRs

Justin Upton's two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Tigers' a 12-11 victory over the Twins.

Tough loss for the Twins to end a six-game winning streak as the Tigers rallied from an 11-6 deficit to win on Justin Upton's walk-off home run. Remember, the Twins traded their closer, Brandon Kintzler, to the Nationals at the deadline. It made sense at the time as the Twins were slumping, but with the Twins back in the wild-card race, no doubt a little regret after a loss like this one.

Justin Verlander allowed one hit over eight innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-0 on Wednesday night.
Justin Verlander's interleague dominance
Verlander has been up and down this season, but the Pirates should be wary with the righty slated to start Wednesday night. The longtime Tiger has been downright dominant against the NL in his career, including a win in his only such start this season (May 9 vs. D-backs).
