It might be hard to believe, but Major League Baseball's trade deadline passed over a month ago now, and most players are settled into their new digs.
With the notable omission of Scooter Gennett, who was released by the San Francisco Giants, let's check in on how all the notable acquisitions are doing.
All stats entering play Sept. 2
Zack Greinke, Astros
Of all contending teams - with the exception of maybe the Nationals - the Astros can most confidently say they didn't need to trade for an ace. But, they did anyway. Greinke has been something of a mixed bag since the trade, striking out 23 over five starts but surrendering 16 runs - 12 earned - including four homers. Houston's lineup has bailed him out, so the veteran owns a 4-0 record with his new club.
Trevor Bauer, Reds
It seemed like the Reds were adding an ace when they gave up Yasiel Puig and Taylor Trammell to acquire Bauer in July. Bauer has been anything but since the trade. The 28-year-old was rocked in his last two outings and has allowed six earned runs or more in three of his six starts for Cincinnati.
Yasiel Puig, Indians
Puig's home run power hasn't shown up, but he's generally been a productive part of Cleveland's lineup since his arrival. His customary cannon of an arm has opponents thinking twice about advancing on fly balls in his direction.
Marcus Stroman, Mets
Stroman just hasn't been himself since heading to the Mets. In his return home to New York, he's been inducing far fewer ground balls, walking many more batters, and allowing way more homers. Perhaps it's just been early jitters after joining a playoff hunt, as his strikeout rate looks impressive.
Nicholas Castellanos, Cubs
Castellanos hasn't just been the best player that got traded, he's been one of the hottest hitters on the planet. Only Nolan Arenado, Aristides Aquino, Gleyber Torres, and Freddie Freeman have more homers since deadline day.
Shane Greene, Braves
After a rocky start to his Braves tenure, during which he surrendered seven earned runs over his first six appearances, Greene hasn't allowed a run in 10 consecutive outings. The 30-year-old has given up just four hits in 10 innings since Aug. 14.
Jesus Aguilar, Rays
Aguilar's breakout in 2018 seems like a million years ago now, though he's been better since joining Tampa Bay. He's improved at getting on base and has reduced the number of strikeouts. He's only gone deep twice with his new club, which is disappointing after he mashed 35 homers a year ago.
Tanner Roark, Athletics
Roark has pitched at least six innings in four of his five starts since joining the Athletics. His home run rate has spiked this month despite moving from homer-friendly Cincinnati to the pitcher's paradise of Oakland, though he did keep the powerful Astros in the yard. Overall, Roark's done pretty much everything the A's hoped for and has been a welcome addition to their staff.
Franmil Reyes, Indians
Reyes has developed a reputation of being a defensive liability, but he hasn't adapted seamlessly to his new role as a designated hitter, either, going 21-for-95. For anyone searching for positives, nearly half of his hits have gone for extra bases.
Jason Vargas, Phillies
Good thing for the Phillies that they only gave up a minor-league catcher to acquire Vargas at the deadline because he's been below average since his arrival. After making solid starts against the White Sox, Cubs and Padres, the 36-year-old closed August by allowing a combined 16 hits and nine earned runs in 10 innings against the Pirates and Mets.
Mike Leake, Diamondbacks
Leake was a surprise acquisition for a Diamondbacks team that, at best, was on the periphery of the playoff race at the trade deadline. He hasn't exactly improved his new club's chances. His numbers are a little inflated due to an absolute demolition at the hands of the Dodgers (eight earned runs in five innings), and Leake is coming off an impressive outing against the Giants where he allowed two runs on four hits across 7 1/3 innings. He's only punched out 11 batters in 28 1/3 post-trade innings. On the bright side, he hasn't allowed a home run over his last two starts after serving up eight in his first three outings with Arizona.
