The 3 p.m. deadline passed Thursday, and the Texas Rangers did not make a move.

After speculation of the Texas front office aggressively trying to move Alex Rios and Neal Cotts, both players will be on the plane to Cleveland for the Rangers' weekend series with the Indians.

Talks with the Baltimore Orioles were reportedly heating up in regards to Cotts, but the O's landed Boston reliever Andrew Miller instead.

While Texas stayed silent, there was plenty of action within the division.

In an eleventh-hour move, Seattle was part of a three-team trade that sent Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price to Detroit. The Mariners traded Nick Franklin to Tampa Bay, and received Austin Jackson from the Tigers.

AL West leader Oakland acquired John Lester and Jonny Gomes from Boston in exchange for Yoenis Cespedes and a compensation draft pick. The A's later traded Tommy Milone to Minnesota, and received outfielder Sam Fuld in return. Fuld will play center field with Craig Gentry and Coco Crisp on the disabled list.

The Houston Astros sent Jarred Cosart to the Marlins along with Kike Hernandez.

Rios' future in Texas isn't set in stone, as he has been moved in August twice in his career. The Rangers acquired Rios after the deadline last year in exchange for minor league infielder Leury Garcia.

He has a $13.5 million team option for 2015 that includes a $1 million buyout. Cotts is on a one-year deal for the 2014 season.

Texas traded Jason Frasor to Kansas City and Joakim Soria to Detroit earlier far in advance of Thursday's deadline, netting three minor league pitching prospects in those deals.
