UPDATE 3:55 PM EST: The Dodgers are officially out of the Ryan Dempster sweepstakes, a source has told Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, leaving the Yankees and Rangers five minutes to come to a deal with the right-hander.

____________________________________________

With roughly one hour left for trades, the Ryan Dempster saga remains unsolved with the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers at a standstill. However, a resolution could be coming soon and Dempster is doing his part to help. The right-handed starting pitcher tells Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago he's expanded his list to waive his 10-and-5 rights for a deal that would send him to the Texas Rangers or New York Yankees.

The Cubs could be targeting positional players in the lower levels of the Yankees farm system, such as Dante Bichette Jr and Angelo Gumbs, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. It's unclear whether the Yankees would part with either of those two in a trade for a rental pitcher that may not even get a playoff start.
