It was a huge blow to baseball to lose both Mike Trout and Christian Yelich to season-ending injuries in the span of a week. These are two of the top three players in the game right now (Ronald Acuna is right there), so being deprived of seeing both in action for the next two weeks is tough.

The idea of spreading their budget among multiple pitchers (Matt Harvey, Trevor Cahill, Cody Allen) was a good idea in theory that minimized risk, but Allen was released in June and Harvey in July. Cahill is still on the roster, but he had a 7.18 ERA in 11 starts before being banished to the bullpen where he has a 5.03 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 22 appearances. Right now, the rotation looks like Andrew Heaney, Griffin Canning, and three open slots.
