No deal with team that claimed Tampa Bay Rays' B.J. Upton on waivers

As expected, CF B.J. Upton remained with the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday as the window closed to make a trade with the still unknown team that claimed him on waivers.

There has been speculation that it was the Nationals or Indians. The Rays did not seem likely to make a deal now given they talked to several teams at the July 31 deadline and can talk to all teams during the off-season.
