Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at the two veteran pitchers who have arguably had the most impact on their new teams.

Greinke's season got off to a rough start when he suffered a broken collarbone in his second start during an altercation with San Diego's Carlos Quentin. Since his return in mid-May, Greinke (11-3, 3.02 earned-run average) has been the top-flight starter they had been craving. On the flip side, Greinke's signing has had the opposite effect on the Angels, who desperately wanted to re-sign the right-hander after trading for him last year. When their bid was unsuccessful, the Angels threw their money at Josh Hamilton and rolled into the season with a patchwork starting rotation that quickly became the team's downfall. As if that wasn't enough, shortstop Jean Segura, whom the Angels dealt to Milwaukee to acquire Greinke, is hitting .312 and has 35 stolen bases. Ouch!
